ICAD 2019 Prompts Week 1 & Themes Weeks 1-3
“Creativity is to discover a question that has never been asked.
If one brings up an idiosyncratic question, the answer
he gives will necessarily be unique as well.”
It’s the Index-Card-a-Day Challenge!
Go to the ICAD home base for all of the details!
Hi. I’m Tammy. I help creative people create.
After debating with myself for years, I am finally diving in and offering extra content via a micropayment tip jar called Ko-Fi. For a monthly contribution of $2 or more —-> 🗝💥🆒 bonus goodies!!! The first two posts are waiting for you! The 2 ICAD video tutorials that were the bonus content from the 2018 challenge. You’ll be able to see the posts for 30 days after the contribution. Or if you set it up as recurring, you’ll see them all. I’m learning as I go — you have to set up a free Ko-Fi account and contribute from there in order to access the thank you content. I’ve already started an Evernote list to brainstorming things to share with you as a thank you! 🙌🏼 You know it will be fun + colorful + happy! If you have any suggestions for "what" to do as rewards, let me know!!!!
Daily Prompts: Week One
Prompts add a twist because you can follow them literally or use them as a nudge, a little fragment of an idea that guides your approach to the card-of-the-day. There are so many clever gyrations and an infinite number of ways that a particular prompt can be interpreted. You can use a prompt literally, dramatically, conversely, figuratively, logically, magically, and beyond. Just pick an adverb and go! More ideas: Look it up in the dictionary, brainstorm connotations and related words, translate into another language, find lyrics that include the words/phrase, etc.
Thematic Prompts: Weeks 1, 2, 3
Concepts and mediums that you might want to use to guide your work. The themes are not scientifically designed to work seamlessly with the daily prompts, that's part of the fun! Use the themes, use the prompts, use both... whatever works for you. Tried and true things that many artists love. Hoping that they lead you to explore some new-to-you ideas too!
The ICAD Challenge runs June 1 - July 31, 2019.
