JaNanamation Sketchbook Challenge 01

Introducing JaNanamation’s first Sketchbook Challenge!


In an attempt to fill up the blank pages of our many, many sketchbooks, Jan and I have come up with a long list of drawing prompts and ideas! We’ve decided to work on them a little bit at a time, so we’ve arranged them in thematic groups and plan to complete them over short periods of time (so it’s not too overwhelming). We invite you to draw with us!


  • These challenges are meant to be sketchbook fillers, so don’t feel pressured to create polished drawings for each prompt! Concept art, idea scribbles, and messy redraws are encouraged!
  • Prompts don’t have to be completed over consecutive days. While you are certainly welcome to challenge yourself by completing a drawing every day, we realize that other obligations may prevent us from drawing when we want to. Take a rest day if you need to or an extra day or two to brainstorm if a particular prompt has you stumped!
  • You can spend more than one day on a prompt. Sometimes a prompt will inspire you so much that you want to spend more time on it; if so, great! Keep on drawing and move on to the next one when you’re ready! Or maybe a prompt requires more time than you’re able to give that day; go ahead and keep working on it until you’re done!
  • Use at least one whole page (one side) for each prompt. The idea is to fill up our empty sketchbooks (so we can justify buying new ones lol). If you choose to work digitally, do your best to fill the entire canvas!
  • We’d LOVE to see your drawings, so please post your drawings online if you’re comfortable with that! Use the tag #JaNanamation so we can find it!

Jan and I will be starting this theme set on September 1, but feel free to start whenever! The next set of prompts will be posted sometime in the future 😉

  1. This sounds like a lot of fun! I’m not good at coming up with stuff like that, though. So, I don’t think I’ll be taking part, but I can’t wait to see what you come up with! 🙂

    • Cool, thanks for following along! 😀 I hope the stuff we draw turns out to be somewhat interesting LOL

      We’ll be posting a lot more art prompts later on, so if any of them catch your fancy (even if it’s just one on a long list), feel free to jump in! 🙂

      • Knowing how creative and talented you are, I’m sure they’ll turn out amazing. 😉
        I’ll be sure to join if I see anything that catches my fancy! I’ve been on a bit of an art streak lately, which is pretty rare for me. 😛 Just today I uploaded three new drawings on my Tumblr, and I’m about to have two more to put up. 🙂
