Sketch Swap- If you are running short on inspiration, head to sketchswap.com where any sketch you create with your mouse will be switched with other sketchers worldwide!

With Sketch Swap, you draw something on the screen, and when you're finished, you send your drawing off to be shared with another user. In exchange, you'll receive a random drawing from someone else. The extra cool part: the drawing you receive appears in the strokes made by the creator, so you get to see the drawing process as well as the finished sketch! And don't worry, all sketches that get submitted go through an approval process, so there's no risk of "seeing something a child wouldn't want to see," as the site puts it. This is definitely a fun little online tool to fuel your procrastination creative side!
