I am suuuuper excited about today's post. You may or may not know that I have an Instagram addiction. And part of reason I cannot get enough Instagram is the Doodle A Day challenge.
The original list is actually Photo A Day, created by a blogger named Chantelle, aka Fat Mum Slim. She comes up with the list and the prompts, and the photographers go at it. I stumbled upon the Doodle A Day challenge when my online friend Rhi of Ello Lovey posted the list for all of us doodlers out there. Well, with all of my spare time (ha!) I am always looking for more things to do, so I jumped on the #DoodleADay bandwagon and I am LOVING it.

When I draw for myself, I typically gravitate towards the same subject matter - my family, flowers or woodland animals. But these new prompts would encourage me to get out of my box and draw other things. Plus, it has been so interesting seeing the interpretations of all the other artists on Instagram that are participating. If you're on Instagram and are interested in joining, just follow the hashtag #doodleadayoct and get drawing!
Anyways - now that you have the backstory, I want to give you a chance to win three prints from my shop!
I have a big art show coming up November 10 (more on that later) and I am going to introduce some new illustrated prints to my lineup. Since I now have over two months of daily doodles under my belt, I'd like to digitize some of them for my shop. This is where you come in - I'd love your input!
