February is here and that means Month of Love Art challenge!
For those unfamiliar with Month of Love, it is a weekly art challenge centered around the theme of love. Every day throughout February a new piece of art based on the a weekly topic is posted on the Month of Love website.
Kristina Carroll has been busy at work rallying illustrators and artists for the upcoming month and it is a fantastic line up.
It is an open challenge however and if you are interested in joining all you have to do is share your art on twitter using the hashtag #MonthOfLove – If you are wondering what the benefit of participating is for you as an artist, I wrote a blog post on that here.
Here are the topics for this year’s challenge:
1. Heroes (Feb 1-7)
Heroes, Protagonists and Idols. Who do you love to see kick ass and/or chew bubblegum?
2. Lost in Translation (Feb 8-14)
The Language of Love has many dialects. Sometimes we’re fluent and other times… it’s all Greek.
3. Weapons (Feb 15-21)
Cupid’s arrows, Menalaus’ thousand ships, Romeo and Juliet’s dagger… Love is war: choose your Weapon.
4. Fantasy (Feb 22-28)
Lloyd Alexander said: “Fantasy is hardly an escape from reality. It’s a way of understanding it.” How does “fantasy” (in any definition) relate to love or affect the meaning of love for you?
