Apparently they were boys comics, but I loved them. This week’s creative challenge is set by @yomi.adegoke - women’s columnist at The Guardian, and co-author of Slay In Your Lane: The Black Girl Bible. The challenge celebrates doing for the sake of doing, and takes us back to a time of abundant creativity - childhood!

That’s not what hobbies should be about – they should be about leisure and love." Yomi Adegoke This week's challenge is set by @yomi.adegoke - women's columnist at The Guardian and co-author of bestselling book, Slay In Your Lane: The Black Girl Bible. She was previously Senior Writer at The Pool and a producer for Channel 4 News, and has written for Vogue, Elle, The Independent and others. In 2018 she was listed as one of the most influential people in London by the Evening Standard and was awarded Journalist of the Year by the Woman In Africa awards. Pens at the ready! Yomi challenges you to: "Doodle your favourite cartoon character from childhood: once copying, and then from memory. As children we were all artists of differing levels – scribbling stick men and doodling Dragonball Z characters on tabletops. Almost everyone I knew could do the superman ’S’ or draw Marge Simpson vaguely from memory. As we got older, the so-called ‘mediocre’ artists eventually were encouraged to stop and only the ‘creatives’ were left doing things many of us enjoyed. But we’re all in some way creative, and what better way to be reminded of that than by taking it all the way back to when we were all allowed to be. Take 10 minutes to doodle that cartoon character you always drew on the back of textbooks when you were a child. Once you’ve had a go by copying, try it again from memory for old time’s sake." Thanks for setting such a fun challenge, Yomi. Get involved! Tag your friends, spread the word and have fun. #ArtTimeMachine #64MillionArtists #SlayInYourLane #TheBlackGirlBible #InfluentialWomen #Doodle #Cartoon This week's challenge is set by @yomiadegoke -women's columnist at The Guardian and co-author of bestselling book, @slayinyourlane.

I just do not remember how old I was. I always draw, and I want to take it up to old age, until I can hold a pencil ✏️ Когда у меня спрашивают: как давно ты рисуешь? Мой ответ: как только я научилась держать карандаш.
