I regularly get asked where my inspiration comes from. I attribute it to a childhood spent watching the Twilight Zone and British comedies. But it does help to give the grey matter a nudge every so often. I’ll often check out prompt-challenges.
Most of the time, I don’t try to stick through a month of prompts. I’ll take what I want then bugger off to the next thing. This weekend, I’ve noticed a few month-long prompts in my feed for June and figured I’d share them with the class.
Kaijune: Illustrate a Kaiju a day for the month of June. You all know Kaijus right? Big-arse monsters like Godzilla, King Kong or them mean buggers from Pacific Rim.
JuNoWriMo: NaNoWriMo comes to June. I don’t think it’s the actual NaNoWriMo team, but there’s a few of them. I’ve come across them on WordPress.com a few times.
NaNoMangO: I’ve no idea if this one’s even going this year, but the idea’s good enough to mention. Create a 30-page comic over 30 days. It’s traditionally taken place in June. Quite literally, nobody is talking about it this year though. That’s not to say you can’t take that idea and just create a comic over 30 days, aye?
Solo Photo Book Month: One for photographers. Create a photobook across the month. Another one, I’m unsure if it’s still going. It ran every year from 2008 to 2018. It’s been quiet since. Not sure if it’s a dead project. Again, there’s nothing stopping you doing the challenge yourself.
If you know of any other June prompt-challenge let me know. I’ll add it to my post and give you a credit link for mentioning, of course.
