Illustration Friday as a site no longer exists.
Illustration Friday was a web site where a random word was posted every Friday. You then had the option to submit a link connecting to an illustration you made based on that word. You also uploaded a thumbnail of that illustration.
My thumbnails and links to my Scottish Word Illustration Friday entries are listed here.
It was good fun. Below are a screenshots of the site courtesy of the Wayback Machine, the Internet Archive, from around 2016 and 2008 respectively.
Now if you use the Illustration Friday address it takes you to a site run by advertisers with no illustrations to be found. I didn’t try and track down any archived material by the previous owner.
There is now an alternative.
For anyone interested a young illustrator has set up a new version – Illustration Day dot Com. She has also automated the process so that she doesn’t have to be enslaved by it.
Not many taking part yet but then I doubt that she is promoting it. You can follow this link to the site and give her some support.
I enjoyed the illustration Friday site back in the day. There were a lot of good artists taking part and you could be sure of a response from a lot of the illustrators if you commented on their work. Very friendly time.
