Rory’s Story Cubes, you can be my wing man any time.
Some time ago, I saw these cubes at a shop, thought they were cute and went on my way. Probably about a year later (a few weeks ago, actually), I caught someone on Instagram using these things to draw a cute comic (sadly, that Instagram account is now gone).
A short time later I’ve acquired a few of these – a base kit and an Enchanted kit (dwarves, faeries, magic, c’mon). I mainly wanted to use these to mix up the group activities for the art meetup I frequent. But also – to make stupid comics at home. Behold…
The awesome thing about these Story Cubes is that there is really no wrong way to use them. Going off of what I saw on Instagram, I roll three cubes and try to draw some sort of scenario that includes some aspect of those images.
Drawing prompts are great – no doubt, though, sometimes little pictures can be a big help! And the cubes are just cute.
I’m seriously really excited for the next Hourly Comics Day – these cubes are going to be a huge help, if not just generally fun!
I mostly post these on my Twitter since it can be a little too spammy for Instagram. If you’re still feeling blocked even with prompts, I seriously suggest giving these a try sometime!
