Hello! Ready to build the creative courage it takes to create visual experiences? Three housekeeping things before we start.
- I’m so excited! David Cohen participated in yesterday’s prompt, and it makes me so happy. See it here! (Doesn’t he seem like someone you’d just want to hug?) I’m also doing a Doodles to Noodle session with him today, which makes me even more excited. Yay for art!
- Not familiar with our Show and Don’t Tell? Jump right in where you’re at (highly recommended), or explore all the prompts.
- Our release celebration pricing is ending today, so if you plan on registering for the course, today’s a fantastic day to do it. Details here.
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s go!

(Jeff and Julianne, who are oh-so-knowledgeable about these things, were thankfully not present to strike our knuckles for such ignorance.)

By the way, I discovered yesterday that you can upload pictures in the comments. Sweet! I’d love to see your experiments as you participate with us. Remember our mantra:
