The downside to this is that I can't post my Peptober post on Instagram. I was really enjoying seeing everyone's posts and art styles.
I'm going to try and post the rest of Peptober here, and if/when Instagram comes back I will post there too.
WHAT IS PEPTOBER?
Hey, I'm so glad you asked! It's a challenge from Andy J Pizza via his podcast Creative Pep Talk. The idea is that you don't have to be a content-generating machine in order to engage folks on social media. The hilarity of this being interrupted by a social media blackout is not lost on me. Each day is a new prompt, which Andy outlined in podcast episode 333. Today's prompt is Do a Part Two.
In my planned Instagram post, I had really pithy things to say. Trust me.
I chose to showcase these folk-art inspired flowers because they have led to a part two, three, and four. When I was in undergrad, our art profs were always telling us to make a series of work. Never just one! And it turns out they were right. The more you make, the more opportunities you have to explore the "what ifs". When you're in the "what ifs" things start to get really interesting, your art starts to expand, and you find yourself in a completely new place of making.
So the next time you sit down to make some art, don't just make one. Make three.
Until next time, friends!
