Once a week they’d put out a word to be used as a prompt for creating an illustration. I used to do this weekly to remind myself that I was an artist. Some cool stuff came of it – sometimes it was just scribbled out just to get the challenge done. But even those were, while not beautiful renderings, the idea was there. Ideas are what’s important. Visual communications is about sharing ideas as visuals and that’s what makes them good.
I just added an IF page to my illustration portfolio: http://rhinoink.ca/artist/illustration-friday/
