Hey HOMwork friends, happy Friday!
(If this is your first time joining us, take a peek at our Challenge Archive for all previous assignments.)
This week we welcome the amazingJoanna Muñoz as our guest teacher! Joanna is an LA-based art director/designer and the lettering artist behind Wink & Wonder. Nothing makes her happier than working with her hands and partnering with rad people to bring their vision to life through lettering. Her style is whimsical with a touch of sass, and her messages are meant to inspire, humor and brighten anyone's day.
Have you ever had a problem and turned to your friends for help?
There's the friend you go to who'll fill your emotional bucket up with hugs and sympathy, the one who'll rant alongside you, and the one you seek out when you need some no-holds-barred advice...
I'm the last friend – I don't do pity parties or the blame game, and if you ask me advice I'll be downright honest, even if that means we don't see eye to eye. #SorryNotSorry
If you told me you weren't happy with where you are in life, I'd probably say, "I think you're exactly where you want to be. There's nothing stopping you from going for it and getting what you want. We're all capable of creating the life we want once we take responsibility for the choices we make, so what are you waiting for?"
Sometimes hearing the truth can be hard, but I genuinely believe tough love (mixed with empathy + compassion) is important for personal growth. A healthy mix of real talk, empowerment, and motivation can go a long way. Having that friend that offers honest advice forces you to address issues you may be avoiding. And, honestly, life's too short to not keep things real, y'know?
Awww yeah - as a HOMwork subscriber, you get two FREE Procreate brushes to play with every week, courtesy of DesignCuts.

It can be about the present or past, and you can spin it as sassy, funny or straight to the point. Have fun and remember honesty is key!
Caption Idea: Tell us what inspired these words of wisdom! Or an example of a situation where tough love really helped you move forward.
