So the past few days I think I’ve been struggling with what they call “creative block.” Perhaps caused by my “Create Everyday” project, or maybe just exacerbated by it, but nonetheless it is present. So, as a means to perhaps free my brain from the thoughtless, uncreative blank that it has been for the past few days, I thought I would ask you all to join me in a little activity.
I got the idea from this post I saw a few weeks back in my Tumblr feed where people were given a sheet of paper with a small figure drawn on it and asked to fill in the rest. The results were all totally different and incredibly imaginative. So, taking that idea we move to the above image which, I’m hoping, will be a template for all of us to work together and create something inspiring. If you interested, follow below.
1. Download the image above by right clicking, or whateverz.
2. Import it into Illustrator, Photoshop, Paint, or whateverzz.
3. Create something around it. You can print and draw on it, paint on it, or keep it all digital. I don’t really think it matters. Just give it a go!
4. Send me your reply via the Tumblr Dashboard, above on the “submit” button, or send them to me at bderico@gmail.com and I’ll share them on here. 
This could be a neat idea or it could just make me look really lonely. So, join in. Let’s build something together!
