A challenge is a great way to stay consistent
and build a new creative habit.
I ask the question, you letter or illustrate the answer
I DON'T want to just provide a random word a day for you to letter, a word that you have zero connection to on that specific day. I want you to letter something that you can put a caption to, something that will start a conversation with your followers.
There will be monthly themes, but no specific words to letter, that will be up to you
FIRST DAY STARTS JANUARY 1ST
How to participate
1. Hold yourself accountable and practice every day. Even a little bit counts.
2. Post a photo of it on Instagram using #TwoEaselsChallenge and tag me @twoeasels because I want to see what you do too.
3. Try to experiment with different tools and styles.
4. Have fun, check out other participants and let's get to know each other by answering the questions.
5. Put the full question in your image description and then talk about it. Start a conversation with your followers. Let’s see how much we all have in common.
All sheets are in my Dropbox. Choose the page you want then click Download - Direct download in the top right corner.
Where do I find the questions?
I'll be posting to social media before each month begins, but you can get all the months right now.
How do I get the most likes on my Instagram post?
Consistency is the first key, if you post once a month no the algorithm will not show you to all the people. Second, you need to use hashtags. If posting a lettering piece done with a Tombow marker I would use #brushlettering #tombow #tombowbrushpen #tombowdualbrushpens #tombowusa @tombowusa #brushcalligraphy #moderncalligraphy #brushletter #handletter #lettering #letteringco #letteringlove #brushtype #letteringworksheets #handlettered #typematters #handwritten #letteringdaily"
See how I use Tombow hashtags to target that specific tool I’m using. If using watercolors I’d use #watercolorlettering #watercolorart #watercolorbrushlettering.
What if my answer is too long to letter or draw?
Don’t worry, just lettering one word from it or a couple will be enough. Just put the rest in your image description.
