Internet, I need something to draw.

I need things to draw, and I'm out of ideas. Where is a good place to find things to draw?

I work long hours at a network operations center. I typically have lots and lots of downtime. Most of that downtime is spent browsing the internet, but lately I've taken to drawing during the longer shifts.
Unfortunately, I rarely have any inspiration to work with, so I solicit ideas from the internet. Working within an idea from someone else seems to bring out my creativity. Plus, I get the satisfaction of making something for someone else (which is nice).
Typically I've gone to Twitter, random IRC channels, and Reddit to ask for ideas, and they've been generally good. The issues I have is mostly inconsistency. IRC is mostly the same people suggesting the ideas (which is fine, but I'd like to hear from other people). Twitter is the same thing, only I get fewer ideas. Lastly, I've made one Reddit "suggest-stuff-for-me-to-draw" thread, which was gangbusters, but I can't be doing that every week. I'd think I'd come across as someone looking for attention.
What I'd like is a forum of some kind where people draw from others suggestions, and critique it? Or, perhaps a forum that has a daily theme and all the members draw from that theme. Does such a forum exist?
If not, is there a "random idea generator" thing that could work for my purposes?
