Advent/holiday challenge?


  • SVS OG

    Does anyone know of an advent/holiday challenge? I realize I need to keep myself on some kind of deadline to build my portfolio. I think I overworked my Slowvember piece, though, so I want to produce some quicker pieces, and perhaps even get a holiday card out of it. And I seem to remember that there is a well-established holiday challenge, and I thought it had advent in the title. Does anyone know what it is?

    Thank you! And your Slowvember pieces look great!

    @LauraA Hi Laura. #advent_challenge2019 is a challenge I found yesterday on instagram.
    The prompts are,
    Dec 1 - Decorating a house,
    Dec 5 - Write a letter to Santa,
    Dec 9 - Turn the Christmas music on,
    Dec 13 - Wrapping presents,
    Dec 17 - Make some good stuff
    Dec 21 - Go ice skating
    Dec 25 - Merry Christmas
    Last month I did #folktaleweek2019 challenge and it was really worth it, new illustrations and new followers on IG. Also I found a new group of illustrators so it was great. Hope you join in.✨

  • Sounds really fun. I will try to make sure to reserve time for these types of activities next year. It is a really good idea for growing social media followers, and also the prompts make good Christmas cards :-).



  • I love A Charlie Brown Christmas and the soundtrack gets heavy rotation this time of year for me. If you’re a fan as well, how about drawing a piece to go with each track? Without drawing the Peanuts characters, of course 😉

    I had an idea yesterday for an image, but it doesn't fit the #Advent_challenge prompts and it's still very vague. After I finish organizing my life a bit post-Slowvember, I'll decide between the Advent challenge and developing my idea, and then I'll post the results! Thanks for your feedback and I'll look forward to seeing what you guys decide to do as well!
