March Moleskine Madness
So here we are, we’re a couple months into 2012, and if you’re like me, your New Year’s resolutions have long been forgotten. But it’s a new month tomorrow and a great time to get into the habit of creating. So MoleskineLovers presents: March Moleskine Madness! The goal: to create something in our Moleskine journals every day in March.
Here’s how it will work:
- Step 1: Draw, doodle, journal, collage anything in your Moleskine, try to fill a whole page.
- Step 2: Upload a scan or pic of your creation to your own tumblr (do NOT submit it to here). Try to include the date somewhere, in the journal or typed in the tumblr post.
- Step 3: Tag your tumblr post “Moleskine Madness” <—-This is important!
I will track the “moleskine madness” tag (you can too!) and create a least a post a week (more if there’s a high number of participants) featuring my favorite pieces.
-What should I draw?
This is an anything goes kind of challenge, so draw whatever you want! If you need more structure than that, there’s plenty of “Month-long drawing challenges” out there on the ‘nets. Here’s one that’s pretty popular on Tumblr: 30 Day Drawing Challenge. I can also offer a daily prompt if people are interested.
It may also help to assign yourself a theme for the month. Places you want to visit, favorite books/movies/tv shows, animals, your favorite things to do. Maybe try drawing in a different style or in a different medium every day.
-I can’t draw!
That’s fine, this isn’t limited to just sketches. You can make a collage, create decorative text, or just write!
-I don’t have a Moleskine.
As I’ve stated before, I’m fine with the many Moleskine-knock-offs out there, I’m not going to scrutinize every picture to make sure you drew it in a Moleskine brandname journal. Just crop your pictures so no edges are visible, I won’t ever know it’s not a Moleskine ;-) (no blue notebook lines, though, please).
-What will I get if I complete this challenge?
Um, a sense of pride and accomplishment. And, tell you want, I’ll create a special “winners post” and list people who complete more than, say, 25 drawings this month. So, the prize is pride, sense of accomplishment and possible Tumblr fame.
Once again, the rules for March Moleskine Madness:
- Draw, doodle, journal, collage anything in your Moleskine, try to fill a whole page.
- Upload a scan or pic of your creation to your own tumblr (do NOT submit it to here). Try to include the date somewhere.
- Tag your tumblr post “Moleskine Madness”. Again, this is crucial, double check for typos before posting.
Let the creativity begin!
