One of the super cool things about our community is that we're always coming up with ways to inspire one another. One of my favorite things is Instagram challenges. If you've never participated in these, here's how it works. The challenge will give you a phrase or theme for every day of a certain time period. You script or letter something, post on Instagram with the hashtag and follow along with people all over the world! Even if you can't participate, the hashtags are ALWAYS worth a follow. Here are a few Instagram challenges happening this October.
While this one isn't specific to lettering, it is all about ink and creativity - and calligraphy has both those things in spades. This challenge is hosted by Jake Parker and has become an annual tradition for lots of artists. You can find the list of prompts here.
