Great American Drawing Challenge

Take the drawing challenge by creating a drawing of inspiring Americans each day for an entire 100 days. You can use my list or create your own (there are many amazing Americans to choose from.)

Use the #GREATamericanchallenge



Personally, I’m focusing on Great American Women which seems appropriate to launch on the day of the Women’s March on DC. Creatively, I want to improve my drawing and typography skills in a positive way. 


Why? Besides the obvious love for drawing...We all could use a small reminder that America is kind of awesome. We’re a nation of boot strappers, dreamers, thinkers, explorers, doers, builders, lovers, inventors and fearless friends.  

Sharpen your pencils, fill your inkwells, and bust out those sketchbooks!
