I started creating a new series of characters recently. These characters all have diverse and important trades or professions within Canada. I thought it would be a good idea to incorporate these characters into my story challenges.

Challenge Goals:

  1. The Canadian Trades/Professions Character Challenge will be ongoing.
  2. I will create one new character in this series per week for at least 52 weeks.
  3. I will draw these new characters and also draw a scene for each one.
  4. I will write their “Meet the Character” page and also a “Character Insight” page for each of these characters.
  5. I will write at least one story per character.
