🏁 The last 100 Drawing prompts
100 days of drawing icons
💎 If you’re going to make something, when ever possible, make it reusable. - Adam Ming
As part of the “🎟 Backstage pass” (Paid subscription), I’ve been giving away a drawing prompt a day in various forms. I have been doing this by sending out 7 prompts in an email every week.
As I near 1 year of writing this newsletter, I’m thinking about how to make the energy I spend on this thing more permanent. I mean if I keep sending 1 prompt a day, that might be 14000 daily prompts. Maybe you don’t need that many. Maybe you need 100.
And that will leave us 13900 days for us to do something else.

Backstage pass subscriptions keeps this thing going.
And it gets you a bunch of extras. One of the extras is: “100 Days of drawing icons”
Thinking of illustration as drawing icons and arranging them into a scene has been one of the breakthrough ideas for me that has helped me level up my practice rapidly. One of the ways I have done that is by repeatedly drawing a series of 100 icons. I’ll be sharing this list with 🎟backstage pass holders and drawing each icon in front of you, while sharing how I think about drawing these icons.
