Illustration Block

Okay, so, writers get writer's block so would illustrators get illustration block? Or maybe a better word is creative block? No, I like illustration block. Not really sure if that's even a real word but it's my word. Like writer's block, there are times when I sit at my drawing board staring at a blank piece of paper and wondering what the heck am I going to draw?

 So to remedy my "illustration block" I decided I needed to challenge myself. I searched the Internet and found this website called Illustration Friday.  It's a weekly drawing challenge that provides you with a prompt word and then you have to illustrate your interpretation of the word.  Every Friday a new topic is posted.  This week's topic is "Tape."

This is my interpretation of the word "tape."

I really had fun with this challenge so I think I will stay in it for a while.   It's also great to see other people's interpretation.  There is so much talent out there.   Here's another great link for more challenges from Kidlit411.

 So if you find yourself struggling with what to draw, go ahead and take part in the illustration challenges out there.  I did, and I love it.  It is a way to keep the creative juices flowing.  It definitely helped me overcome my illustration block.   I can't wait to see what next Friday's word is.

Until then, it's back to the drawing board for me.
