Happy Halloween, Sketchbook Skolars! If you’ve been doing Art Before Breakfast: The Workbook along with author and Sketchbook Skool co-founder Danny Gregory, you might be finding that some of your drawings are a little scary. While seasonally appropriate, these frightening works aren’t exactly what you had in mind when you got game to finally make some art. Don’t let these sketchy sketches freak you out, or frighten you away from being creative! Danny will explain what’s happening in this video, and today’s lesson will get you out of the woods and back on track, being creative and having fun. Go ahead and dip into the Halloween candy early while you watch, and post your scariest drawing online with the hashtag #sketchbookskool so we can congratulate you! Remember, the only bad drawing is the one you don’t do.

Have you ever been discouraged by a “bad” drawing? What did you do to keep going? Tell us in the comments below.
