Welcome to Cirque Des Cryptids! (aka Cryptober 2020)

Last year Cryptober was a big success. I had a lot of fun interacting with other artists and seeing their interpretation of different cryptids on Instagram. This year’s freak show–I mean prompt–includes cryptids, mythical creatures, and fearsome critters.

Don’t know what cryptids are? Then step right up and enter the wonderful world of the unknown.

Open your imagination, what do you see?

If you’re interested in participating, use #cryptober2020 on Instagram, and when the event starts, I will share your work in my story.

If you send me your design for the designated day and before I post mine, I will tag you and post it on my feed with my cryptid post. If you have any questions feel free to DM me @mel.cabre. Scroll down on my feed and you will see last years post. Just look for this guy.

Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and share your talent. Everybody’s art is welcome regardless of your skill level. Do it because it’s fun.

If you have any questions you can also post them here.

Thanks for reading, and I hope to see you over on Instagram for Cryptober 2020!
