Woah, it's Week 29 of HOMwork 2019!
(If this is your first time joining us, take a peek at our Challenge Archive for all previous assignments.)
I get asked all the time about the tools I use: the lipstick I’m wearing, the sketchbook I'm using, the podcasts I'm listening to...so I started compiling alist of resources that have the Hom Sweet Hom Stamp of Approval.
If you’re ever feeling stuck on coming up with original content for your Instagram or blog, try curating a list of you-approved things! By sharing what you like and enjoy, you’re giving your followers a sneak peek into the things that inspire you and influence your work.
I don’t know about you, but I’ll always take a personal recommendation from someone I admire over a generic Google search for "best (insert item here)". Which leads to this week’s assignment...
Awww yeah - as a HOMwork subscriber, you get two FREE Procreate brushes each week courtesy of DesignCuts.

Caption Idea: Tell us about 5 things that have your personal stamp of approval (podcasts, people, brands, websites, food groups, etc.)
Creative Tip: Get creative with the language and style of your stamp! Instead of the generic red bold letter "APPROVED" stamp that you see on bank loans, try incorporating your own personality into your seal through color, shapes and style. When you put your own spin on something familiar it’s a great way to stand out from the crowd.
Resources: Need some stamp/seal inspo? I love looking through the NYPL Picture Collection for vintage ornate examples of type and ephemera.
P.S. You can catch on past Q&As here.
