In my last blog post I mentioned, in passing, one of the greatest motivational groups I have come across. OzComics is a community driven art challenge run weekly on Facebook. It challenges artists to create new works every week in categories ranging across the entire spectrum of comics and popular culture.

Run by Darren Close (creator of the Aussie comic Killeroo) and Rachel Pickett, the group aims to inspire artists to create and display their work in a supportive and challenging environment.

Many of my latest works have come from the weekly challenges, they have pushed me to improve my work, complete paintings to a deadline and explore new mediums (in this case Watercolour). Seeing the great art produced my all kinds of artists each week serves as a catalyst to push your limits.

If you are an artist who could use a little nudge, or if you just like checking out cool art, swing by www.facebook.com/OzComics
