This week I challenge you to find the most uncommon, unknown, word you can find in the dictionary, and illustrate it! You can either use the definition as inspiration for the content of the image, or make up your own definition based on how the word makes you feel! But the title of your image will be the word you have chosen.
Can't wait! Good luck!

This week's challenge is inspired by a personal frustration which I struggle with on a daily basis, the love humans have with physical objects. I've wanted to do an illustration like this for months now, but never got around to it. I challenge you to capture this concept anyway you choose. As an example I might consider, a man obsessively stroking his i phone, while staring at it with pure infatuation. There's a lot of ways you could visually go about this challenge, but when it's complete I want to powerfully read an affectionate emotion within your piece. Good luck, and like always I'm excited to see what you come up with!

This is Peter at Holly's grandma's house. Is that Holly passed out on the ground?! Are you not helping her?? ! lol. The nurse hat on the sun is brilliant. For those of you who havn't seen Peter's work, the sun gives the clue to the theme/ location of each image.
and lastly, a flash animation by ivan ha, apparently the original file of the girl running had much less clothing. Ivan had to reconstruct clothes for every frame! you're welcome holly :D

Thank you dearly for submitting to the blog. It means a lot to Jen and I!! I’ve reviewed a few of them already and am very excited that our first open challenge was a success!! Hopefully a few more can be submitted before Friday :)
An update on the hand. I’m hoping the cast can come off on the 21st. I started using my fingers this week as they now have strength back. Unfortunately I can’t hold a pencil correctly, that’s my next goal. Wanting horribly to draw and paint again..
