So I've decided on doing a 365 day drawing challenge! I've compiled a list of 365 things (adjectives, ideas, verbs, etc.) and I will pick one at random every day. After a year, I will have 365 unique drawings!! I actually started yesterday, and I have to upload the pic. I did #35. If I remember, I will upload every pic I draw.

Update: If you'd like to use this list, please go right ahead and do so! My permission is not necessary, but any comments or credit to me would be greatly appreciated! :nod:
