As many of you know, I have a Facebook page/group called The Daily Creative. I’ve been wrestling with it a little as I try to figure out how much content is too much, versus not enough, but one thing I have determined to do is post a daily art challenge each month. Well yesterday I heard that Chinese New Year was on January 25 and that this year is the year of the Rat. Well if you know my artistic history, you’ll know I’ve drawn a lot of rats, from fan art of Ed Roth’s Rat Fink to my own characters Rikki Rat and the Vermin, I love to cartoon rats. I decided that February’s Challenge will be called Rat-ruary. So if you’re feeling a little “rat-ical” come on in and join in the fun. Be sure to join the Facebook group so you can share your creations. It’s just a challenge to trigger your creativity.

Here’s a creative challenge from my upcoming book, The Daily Creative:

I’ve set up a new feature at my art and creativity site called The Daily Creative. It started today. Each day five days a week, you’ll get a creativity kick starter. Go over to and subscribe. Here’s a sample:

tdclogoWelcome to The Daily Creative. A daily creative challenge to get your creative juices flowing. It might be an art challenge, it might be an idea generation challenge, a writing challenge, an invention, a fill in the gag cartoon. You don’t have to do them all, but if you need a boost, they’re here for you. You can share your results over on the Facebook page.

Let’s start with an easy one. Not terribly original but a whole lot of fun. In three minutes (use the timer below), come up with as many uses as you can for a paper clip. That’s right a simple paper clip. Think outside the box and come up with as many as you can. This challenge will help to stretch those creative muscles.
