#AprilArtJourney* is a challenge to get your creative juices flowing! We have committed ourselves to this journey in April 2019. Inspired by the 22 tarot cards of the Major Arcana, we set out to learn new things.
* You can select the Great Arcana card each day corresponding with the day,
* or you can randomly draw a tarot card as a daily inspiration!
There are 2 ways to participate:
* Sketch, draw, do digital art or paint inspired by your card of the day,
Talent is a myth.
Don't let anyone tell you that you're not "gifted" enough to do art. All it takes is patience, focus and discipline, and those can be trained.
Look for the right teachers and learning material, surround yourself with artists better than yourself, and generally work a shit ton - you can make it.

Funnily, the closest living relative of opabinia is probably the tardigrade.
Tardigrades are tiny, near-microscopic invertebrates which are found all over the world. They're also famous for being incredibly resilient, being able to survive things which would kill most other animals instantly – including extremes of temperature and pressure, dehydration, air deprivation, and radiation exposure. In experiments, they've even survived brief exposure to space.
