2015 Creative Challenge: Geek Edition

Geek 'Verse

Creative Challenge

We’ve all seen and many have taken part in various creative challenges. I propose a new one–with a geek theme!

You can use YOUR OWN art medium to fulfill these, you just have to have fun! All of these will have a geeky theme, though some will be abstract enough for many interpretations. You’re artists, so be inspired and take these as a way to challenge yourselves to try something you might not have tried before. Not all of your projects will be perfect, but that’s okay! As long as you are challenging yourself and doing your best, you’ll beat this challenge.

Here we go.

You’ll have one week to finish each challenge. Once you’ve finished your artwork, post a photo online–you can use Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, Deviantart, or whatever platform you like to use. Feel free to come back here and comment with a link to your post…

What defines you?

What defines you? All sorts of things: things such as your culture, your subculture. Your needs, likes, interests, favorites, even the clothes you wear. The biggest things like your name to the smallest things such as a button you wear define who you are. This blog is all about living free. That is why I naming it #ilivefree. I also want to start a #ilivefree challenge which I will be organizing.
