This week your drill is to create a priceless museum artifact using any of your preferred art supplies, software and workflows. Then tag it #RookiesWeeklyDrills and #MuseumArtifact.

Museums are filled with priceless artifacts from all civilisations. Go find one that speaks to you and build it, draw it, or bring it to life. Check out these resources to get you inspired here and here. I also challenge you not to waste hours with this awesome website from The British Museum by Google.
