I myself would call myself an "artist" now, I got some tips from friends on how to make bad art so if anyone needs ideas on how to make bad art:
1) draw with your non-dominant hand
2)draw with your eyes closed
3)draw with a timer (like, draw the game character in 1 minute)
4) grab one of your old toddler drawings and redraw that
5) draw with a mouse
6) Do all 5 at the same time
Hopefully that will be enough to draw programmer art!
