#scbwiArtober 2022

Join the SCBWI Illustration Community in October for 31 days of illustration prompts under the hashtag #ScbwiArtober! 

Each day includes a prompt to inspire your daily practice. Work in your favorite medium or play with new materials. Share your art when you can or post it each day with the #ScbwiArtober hashtag on Instagram and Twitter. The main goal is to develop a regular practice of creating new work––perfectionism is out.


Be sure to use the official hashtags so we can see your work!





Post on your social media and tag us:

Here are the rules:

 – This is not about perfection. The goal is to develop a daily practice.  

– We encourage you to try new media––analogue and digital.  

– Share you work on Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #ScbwiArtober.

– Go to the hashtag to see inspiration and cheer on other SCBWI Illustrators. This is a great way to find your online community.

– Play and have fun each day!
