2022 Spoonflower + Ello Lovey Doodle-A-Day January Challenge

We’re kicking off the new year with our third-annual Doodle-A-Day Challenge with our friend Rhianna Wurman of ellolovey, and we want you to join us! If one of your new year’s resolutions is to spend more time on a regular drawing practice this year, this is the challenge for you. We’ve even got special prizes in store for one lucky participant (since we all know rewards are the best way to make a habit stick, right?).

Throughout the month, join us in our Doodle-a-Day Challenge on Instagram around the theme “Adventure.”  We’ve all been dreaming about our next big adventure during lockdown, and what better way to manifest those adventures in the future than to dedicate time each day to drawing all the things we love about travels, trips and adventure?

Use our list of prompts below to inspire your drawings with whatever medium you prefer—pen and paper, iPad and Procreate, it’s up to you! You can aspire to make this part of your daily routine or jump in when it makes sense for your schedule.

Before you get started, get to know Rhianna in her Meet the Designer interview!
