What is it?
Inspired by other monthly drawing challenges, I have decided to create a challenge for myself for the month of December. Draw a caricature based on daily prompts during one of the busiest months of the year. Sounds a bit crazy. Maybe it is. But I'm going to give it a shot and invite other artists to participate.

How to participate
Draw a caricature, every day, based on the Official Caricacember prompt list.
Free days included in the Challenge. You choose whether to draw on holidays or other days of personal significance. (IE, religious holidays, new year's eve, family gatherings).
Post to social media for each day's prompt with the artwork or your reason for taking the free day. Share why the Free Day is important to you.
Be Kind. Caricatures are not mean or cruel. Avoid negative, derogatory, teasing and bullying caricatures.
