The Muppetational May Challenge: Artist Edition

Published: April 29, 2024
Categories: Feature

Back in 2018, we celebrated Muppetational May: a completely made-up, month-long celebration of the Muppets where we asked Muppet fans across the internet to answer questions about your favorite (and least favorite) Muppet stuff every day through the month of May.

It was a ton of fun, and it created a great amount of Muppety chatter on social media. We’ve been wanting to do it again ever since, but there are only so many times we can ask who your favorite Muppet is, ya know??

This year, we’re changing it up a bit with Muppetational May: Artist Edition! The idea is this: We’ll give you a prompt for all 31 days of May. We want YOU to interpret that prompt however you’d like and draw something. Get weird with it. Get creative. Think outside the box. But whatever you do, make it Muppety.

We’re hoping some of our more professional artist friends will join in, but even if you don’t have a degree in graphic design, we hope you’ll consider participating. Break out the Sharpies, doodle on a napkin, or do whatever tickles the artistic part of your brain.

Need some inspiration? May we suggest watching our recent New York Comic Con panel, in which we asked four talented artists to do… well, exactly this.

If you’re posting these on social media, we ask that you use the #MuppetationalMay hashtag. Or post your pictures directly on the ToughPigs Discord!

Thanks for participating in Muppetational May! We’re so excited to see all of your amazing artwork throughout the month!
