Have You Considered Spending Next Month Drawing Mathematics?

While poking around on Mathstodon, the mathematics-themed instance of the Twitter-like Mastodon, I ran across this. It’s “Mathober 2022”, the third of a series of daily doodling prompts, all built on mathematics themes.

The list of topics, and the goal of the exercise, is described here. The idea is to take a chance to do a sketch or a doodle or write a little bit about each of 31 mathematics topics, and share what you do. There’s no obligation to do all of them, no standards on how finished to do things. Or whether you can work ahead, or enter things late. The goal is to encourage creative expression.

Some of the prompts, like ‘cubic’ or ‘Moiré’, seem to have obvious artistic interpretation. Others, like ‘fundamental’ or ‘singularity’, will be more challenging.

This turns out to be the third Mathober and I regret not being aware of earlier ones. Daily prompt projects can be great ways to find motivation to do new creative projects.
