People are still posting work for our 30 day January challenge, in which artists are invited to respond to a daily prompt posted on our V. Notes blog. Unlike other drawing challenges, these prompts are wildly varied, open to non-typical materials around us, and are designed to feed a broad spectrum of creative skills at all levels of art making. MONDAY: Design/CompositionTUESDAY: Memory/ImaginationWEDNESDAY: See & RespondTHURSDAY: VocabularyFRIDAY: ComicsSATURDAY: ExperimentalSUNDAY: Observation We’ve received hundreds of great submissions. It was very difficult to narrow it down! Below are a few of our favorites. Argus-Eyed First, there was one submission that must have been under the sofa when we posted week 1 favorites, but this time it caught our “eye”. This vigilant friend is from Tegan Wyman, in response to “Argus-eyed”, from Greek mythology Argos, the name of a watchman with a hundred eyes. More Argus eyed creations are posted on SAL Challenge Faves Week 1. Tegan Wyman, Argus-eyed Scribble Panels This prompt was to scribble, then cut the paper into random panels and respond to the marks on the panels.

Enriquez Instructions for drawing #118 January 13, people responded to an invitation given to participants in the late 70’s: instructions for a wall drawing by Sol LeWitt. Our participants took a few liberties, but we didn’t mind. “On a wall surface, any continuous stretch of wall, using a hard pencil, place fifty points at random. The points should be evenly distributed over the area of the wall. All of the points should be connected by straight lines.” E. ZackeyIslegirl Megan Carroll Scrooch On January 14, artists responded to the vocabulary word scrooch; to crouch or huddle. These were fun! S. EnriquezJess Ray Chamille Ireland “Learning English”Courtney Wooten “Self Portrait”Lyll Wallerstedt abecedarycomic.com Those are our favorites for week 2 of our 30SAL Challenge.
