Various artists participate in a monthly dedication to giant monsters, dubbed Kaijune.
With the recent release of Godzilla: King of the Monsters, many artists have been inspired to draw Kaiju-themed art. Some artists base their work off of the movie, while others create their own favorites. The release of the Legendary Pictures film coincides with a tradition among artists who spend the month of June or July dedicated to drawing the creatures, called “Kaijune” and “Kaijuly” respectively.
Some prompt lists began to circulate, but the one that has the most participants so far is by @flancortes on Instagram. These prompt lists give artists wanting to participate a list of guidelines for each day of the month.

Tried my best to make a neat prompt list for y’all, i usually do my own thing for Kaijune but this list has some parallels to my own Kaiju! Feel free to share and spread the excitement. As always this list is just for those who want to use it, otherwise do ya own thing or take and use from the list as you’d like. Have fun everyone 🙂 — #illustration #drawing #kaijune #kaijune2019
At the time of this article, artists are only a few days into the event and the hashtags #kaijune, #kaijuly, and #kaijune2019 have exploded with participation. Per @flancortes’ post, adherence to the prompt list is not required, it’s all just about having fun and sharing work.

Please continue to check out the hashtags throughout the months of June and July and make sure to keep supporting your favorite kaiju-loving creators.
