Spoonflower is sponsoring a month of drawing for the month of August where they provide daily exercises and inspiration to use as a prompt for drawing an illustration or surface design in your sketchbook.
The theme for week 1 was Open Spaces, so the prompts included cactus, mountain, tree, landscape and river. I experimented with a few ideas, and these are my favorites. I think they would make fun notecards or surface patterns.
It’s nice to have prompts to narrow down the focus on what to draw. And it’s great to have theme each week so the illustrations can be tied together into a series.
