Two of the tenants of the Keep It Steady Initiative are self-improvement and consistently making comics. Starting this week, we will be offering weekly prompts to motivate and challenge you as a cartoonist. We encourage you to choose one of the three constraints to make a one-page comic this week, but feel free to apply these constraints to a longer project; this could help you overcome a problem you're facing by viewing it from a new vantage point. To learn more about the benefits of working with constraints, check out this Wired article.
This week's challenges are:
- Thematic/Narrative: "Summer"
- Visual: Only use color pencils
- Structural/OuBaPoian: Beautiful Outlaw - You cannot use any of the letters in your name in your comic's text
- Email it to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Week 1 Challenge - [Name]"
- Post it on the Keep It Steady Initiative Facebook group
- Submit it to the Cartoon Allies Tumblog
- Post it on Tumblr with the tag "ca challenge"
