A Weekly Illustration Challenge
March 14, 2009 7:14 AM   Subscribe

Illustration Friday is a weekly illustration challenge. A topic is posted every Friday and then participants have all week to come up with their own interpretation. Check out the illustrator interviews. Here you'll find motivations, processes and styles, with links to the fine contemporary artists. From MeFi's own annathea. [via mefi projects]

Penelope Dullaghan created Illustration Friday at her blog in 2004 (inspired by Photo Friday) as part of a succession of fun projects intended to inspire folks who like to draw.

I'd been a fan of her blog, and so when she put out a call for tech help on a mailing list we both frequented, I responded immediately, and a wonderful friendship and creative partnership was born. It's been five amazing years and we are looking forward to many more. Thanks so much for the post!

I was a big fan of Illustration Friday at first, but the charm wore off for me when I realized that most people weren't actually creating illustrations for the weekly theme. Most people seem to just take an illustration vaguely (at best) fits the theme and posts it. I was hoping it was more "here's the topic - now go create something" and less of a "do you have anything sitting around that you can somehow tie into the theme this week?". There's still some nice art up there, but it's no longer a weekly must-see for me.

A topic is posted every Friday and then participants have all week to come up with their own interpretation.
And here's a link to the part that actually addresses that.
