One of my life-long goals is to write and illustrate a children's book. I have been pouring all of my attention and time into my abstract work - which has been incredible - but I realize until I start carving out time to practice illustration I will never get any better or develop the style I need to create that book. So my friend Lauren and I decided to create weekly prompts to hold ourselves accountable, and we invite you to join us!
New prompts are announced every Sunday.

It has been so much fun seeing everyone's work! I am hoping by the end of this sketchbook I will be closer to my own style. Below is an up-to-date Airtable gallery of all the entries so far! Join along by using #csminkchallenge in your post on Twitter or Instagram or sharing in the Discord channel. By joining the Discord, you can discuss your work with others as well. Not sure what Discord is? It's basically Slack. Not sure what Slack is? It's basically a Facebook group but without the annoying parts of Facebook. Oh yeah, I also made my first YouTube vlog and included a bit about this project, plus a little tour of Made STL! Check it out and subscribe to my channel, I am going to be doing more video content!
