A creative challenge I’ll be doing that you’re all welcome to partake in. Basically: You’ll be drawing/writing about/whatever other creative thing you want to do 28 different monsters based on the prompts below. You can do doodles, full-blown paintings, short drabbles, whole stories, whatever you want. While this is intended to be done through the month of February you’re welcome to do this whenever you wish.
These monsters can be gross, creepy, cutesy, pretty, whatever you want. Just let your imagination fly and have fun with this.
If this catches on it’d be really cool if you tagged your creations with ‘28 Monsters.’ I’m interested to see other people’s takes on the prompts.
