Anyone in here want to do a children's ABC blog/drawings for fun. I mean as a group we can all do a letter a week and post them on a blog or forum or something. Just trying to seek out some creative fun.

No real rules other then make it look like an ABC style artwork. I will be posting a letter a week in order from A-Z but you can do the current, future or past Letters, just keep in mind if it's a future letter I won't post it until I come up on it.
Just FYI I will do new letters on Fridays :)

Sooooooo who is ready for the letter "F" I find myself doing a few letters in one sitting which make it easier to keep up with. However like every artist I know do a specific kind of art every week is a hard thing to keep up with. Part of the reason I wanted to start this blog was to force myself to be less lazy and keep the creative juices flowing, so glad that people are pitching in.
