What's Sketch Fest?
Sketch Fest is a 48 hour creative jam session with artists across the world, brought to you by Ellen Million Graphics and many gracious donors. Prompters leave ideas and artists sketch, in any media, whatever catches their fancy. The only rule? Sketches can only be worked on for one hour, during the Sketch Fest event.
The short window of artistic opportunity means each piece is low pressure - if you mess it up, at the most you've invested an hour, and in many cases, only a few minutes. Working to someone else's prompts means you're stretching your creative muscles and exploring topics that you might not have come up with yourself. Sketch Fest is a surefire way to break through a creative block and find inspiration. And if you haven't finished in an hour, you can always go back and post a finished piece later, as long as you've uploaded your sketch at the hour-mark. You can see a gallery of finished pieces.
I keep wondering "Where is Sketchfest?" but I guess the answer is: On the Internet.
