Every October I like to do some sort of drawing challenge. 2013 and 2014 were digital art challenges. 2015 through 2019 have been ink challenges. Often I like to have a theme, as in 2018 when I did all SCP Foundation related drawings. This year I did a Magnus Archives drawing challenge!
I didn’t get 31 drawings done, I the only years I managed to do so were 2013, 2014 and 2018. But I still had a lot of fun doing it. Here are the drawings I got done, captioned with the (awesome!!) Magnus Archives episodes they are based on.
As you have hopefully been able to guess by the widely ranging and creepy subject matter of the few drawings I managed to get done, The Magnus Archives is an absolutely riveting podcast chock-full of imaginative and scary stories. Every single episode is a standalone scary story (much like an SCP Foundation entry) but they have the further charm of all weaving together into one big story at the end.
I can’t recommend it highly enough! I hope these drawings may inspire you to give it a look. And if you have any thoughts about my interpretations or the podcast, I’d love to hear from you in the comments below!
