Summer Sketch Days have come to a close. Thanks to everyone who participated! We will be randomly selecting the prize winners over the next few days.
We encourage you to keep sketching on a daily basis and posting your work to your Epilogue Sketchbook.
"Summer Sketch Days" is a special event to encourage artists to open their sketchbooks and get sketching-- and to share the results.
We've created a great home for sketchbooks on Epilogue, now we need YOU to help us fill it up.
We challenge you to take out your sketchbook and sketch every day for at least 30 minutes, uninterrupted, and upload your sketch each day. At the end of Summer Sketch Days, you'll have the start of a great online sketchbook you can draw on for inspiration.
If you don't sketch regularly, you should!
"It is only by drawing often, drawing everything, drawing incessantly, that one fine day you discover to your surprise that you have rendered something in its true character."

- Well-filled sketchbooks are a treasure trove of ideas and creativity

Participation is free and easy. Just create a free Epilogue account (or login if you're a member), and use our simple submission system to upload your sketches. After you upload your first image, your sketchbook will be automatically created and updated as you add new images.
