Greetings monster lovers!

Each year, starting on March first, a gaggle of monsters are set loose upon the world. At least, that is the hope. This is where we need your help. Each day during the month of March, draw, paint, write or make a monster in some way to share. It doesn’t matter if it’s good, bad or somewhere in between, we don’t care. Any efforts are welcome! If this sounds like fun and you’d like to participate, please join the monster making squad.

Happy creating!



Back in October of 2012, I decided it might be fun to draw a monster a day for the entire month. I had previously done similar challenges with NaNoWriMo and The 30 Characters Challenge – both of which are in November. Given my love for monstrous characters and silly monstrosities, I figured I’d give it a try. Did I succeed? Yup. I did. And it was great. I had so much fun doing it I decided to make it a public challenge.

What is Month of Monsters?

Month of Monsters is a self paced art challenge to create one monster a day for the entire month.

Who are you?

My name is Natalie. I like to illustrate things.

Why March?

Why not?

Who can participate?


Do I have to sign up somehow for this thing to participate?

Heck no. You do your own thing on your own site or wherever you feel most comfortable. Although, if you do feel like sharing, feel free to use the hashtag #monthofmonsters to let your friends know about your progress.

Does it cost anything to participate?

Again, heck no. It’s completely free to participate.

But, I can’t really draw/write/etc. very well. Can I still participate?

Definitely. We especially encourage those who are less experienced. The only way to improve is to create more things. The community at Month of Monsters is supportive of all skill levels.

How to Participate

Make a piece of monster themed art. That can be a drawing, painting, story, sculpture, etc.

Post it online with the hashtag #monthofmonsters

The next day, create again!

That's it!
Happy monstering!
