People posted hundreds of drawings 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 Those who hadn’t fallen off the wagon really seemed to hit a stride on week 3. It was very difficult to narrow it down! Below are a few of our favorites. Interview an Object The challenge for this day was to find out what a common object had to say about itself or its life. Scott Barrett Gil Mendez G Musland Vanessa Tegan Wyman Alexia Cameron E. Zackey Lucia Fox S. Enriquez Ears The next two challenges were to draw your ears – once from feel, and then the next day from observation. An additional challenge was to use the drawing to make a monotype. We got a lot of ears!

We received a lot of very creative responses to this, but one in particular stood out: this paper sculpture by Colleen Tuell. Gorgeous and concise work.
