The January Challenge 2018

Here you can see all our January Challengers’ submissions.

As a quick lunchtime challenge, we built castles at our desks! Definitely re-energised us for the rest of the working day and put smiles on our faces :) Thanks for the add - I am a photographer and I just wanted to say thank you to Dane Meech ... for your random act of kindness..

Sketchblogged@wordpress.com. Angi Rance pages from my sketchbook. So I have decided to do it every weekend, and leave a drawing in a cafe or public space.

WELL DONE to everyone who participated in the #thejanuarychallenge #64millionsartists. I enjoy doing such challenges because it makes the world more alive. I'm looking at new details and and seeing the whole picture differently. There is just a little bit more magic out there than normal. How was it for you? And where to next? Well if you're still hungry for a challenge - I have one for you! ... One of the #thejanuarychallenge prompts was to try blackout poetry with text but I think there is is so much potential for blackout with images too. Why don't you give it a try? I'd love to see your blacked out images so make sure you tag me when you post them As with blackout using text, I reckon it's good for you and society to respond in creative ways, rather than just consume, all that is being throw at us. I was inspired by the energy generated during #thejanuarychallenge to buy this old magazine from the hospital secondhand charity shop and do a bit of blackout during my breaks. #blackoutpoetry #newspaperblackout #circlemade #circleproject Before you start getting that #fridayfeeling and start packing down for the weekend please take a 5 minutes to do our #TheJanuaryChallenge survey. We'd really love to hear your feedback... then you can party! ow.ly/P67c30i8V43 Replying to @64M_Artists@64M_Artists Still reflecting on the journey #TheJanuaryChallenge #64millionartists #dothinkshare #drawingmatters #inspirational #contemporary #collective Day 31 of #TheJanuaryChallenge Today's challenge is to celebrate!

Here's to surviving the difficulties and rocking the awesomenesses. #thejanuarychallenge #64millionartists #celebrate #cheers Celebrating that I actually did 90 percent or more of these challenges . I enjoyed viewing everyone's artwork .this was a truly inspiring month !! Have a great creative year everyone !!! Between lost prompts and tooth issues, I had a rough start with this challenge. I was unable to handle the uncomfortable challenges...so I avoided them. Since things have improved I thought I would rewind and tackle something I skipped... . Day ones challenge was lost to spam...though even if I'd seen it on time, I'm sure I would have skipped it. I still am so overwhelmed by the ideas of what I want to do this year. In the end I decided that regardless of what I do, or don't achieve...surviving the year is an accomplishment worth an award! . Too often I struggle to write a caption for my photos...a blurb for a nonexistent book was overwhelming. I finally decided to give it a try because I'm considering writing my story one day. I kind of cheated with this one by employing a blurb generator...that last paragraph convinced me to share my result... . #thejanuarychallenge #64millionartists #betterlatethannever #rewind #selfawards #blurbitout #thatescalatedquickly Well, #thejanuarychallenge is over. To celebrate I usually just draw or play games. #64millionartists #celebrate #art #drawing #digital #digitalart #eye #pixels Well, #TheJanuaryChallenge is over and usually when I'm celebrating I'm just drawing more or playing games. #64MillionArtists #drawing #digital #art #digtitalart #eye #pixels 31 3031 - Celebrate!

Day 31 of #TheJanuaryChallenge #64MillionArtists Taking part in this year's @64millionartists January Challenge. Day 31: Celebrate Aww, it's the last day! Coincidentally @danhancox Was treating me to a fancy dinner tonight to celebrate me not killing his cats while he was away so let's treat that as a double whammy celebration! Food, decor, everything @eatnative was *wonderful*. Thanks Dan for the very special dinner and to @josephinefhunter and crew for such a stimulating start to the year! #TheJanuaryChallenge #64millionartists #adobesketch #digitaldrawing #photography #Native #eatnative #britishfood #delicious #restaurant #antlers #feathers #birch My friend shared this - not sure exactly what it is, but the people running this group might qualify? Day 31: celebration Sad that our fantastic month has come to an end. What a fab way to Start the year and get over Christmas. I have completed every challenge which is very satisfying and so enjoyed everyone's contributions. You could say I celebrated by going round the shops. Love hunting for treasures in charity shops. So glad I went in one as I was able to help a lady with some information- definitely right place at right time. Out for yummy meal with hubby and my girls. Tired but happy. Will dip into 28 drawings but not sure I'm good enough to contribute. Samples so far look very good. Anyway thank you all and hopefully we will still bounce ideas around on here one way or another. Day 31 #TheJanuaryChallenge #64MillionArtists - Celebrate Thank you @64M_Artists @64M_Artists Thankyou for inspiring so many of us with #TheJanuaryChallenge definitely time to celebrate a great way to enjoy #January Day 30 of #TheJanuaryChallenge Make up and set someone else a challenge. Anything goes - as long as it inspires their creativity. Thank you @realdustinlyon for completing my challenge to draw two things that rhyme with each other #64MillionArtists #CSAdaily18 #WiganArt Challenge #31. Lets Celebrate. The first email I read this morning was the FANTASTIC poem written by the guy in Glasgow. It was BRILLIANT. And its had me thinking all day how to describe ALL you WONDERFUL people and all the words of encouragement you have offered to EVERYONE! And I remembered the words to the R.E.M Song. So here they are. And THANK YOU ALL for such a WONDERFUL month! Day 29 of #TheJanuaryChallenge Today we want you to look back at all the challenges you've done so far, and redo your favourite one. You can even redo the one you wish you did differently or had longer to do. #64MillionArtists #CSAdaily18 #WiganArt Day 28 of #TheJanuaryChallenge Create a postcard for your hometown. It could even be a postcard to show why your garden is the best in town! Wherever it is, we want to be wishing we were there. #64MillionArtists #CSAdaily18 #WiganArt Day 27 of #TheJanuaryChallenge Leave a present for a stranger. Maybe you can leave a kind note on the train, a handmade present on your daily commute or an old book in a cafe? #64MillionArtists #CSAdaily18 #WiganArt The greatest joy of adult life .... fish finger sandwiches and a glass of wine... #celebration #64millionartists #TheJanuaryChallenge thanks for all the fun Claire Herbert Celebrating Day 31 of the #TheJanuaryChallenge by blowing my own veg trumpet...and saluting all the #64millionartists out there #day 32 Celebrate. I was hoping to celebrate with a beautiful photograph of tonights Supermoon but only caught fleeting glimpses through the clouds. It seems a bit like my creations start with the idea but some didn't turn out as I hoped but a lesson I learned was be happy that you had even gave it a go. I completed every challenge I never gave up which is something I'm prone to do, that alone I'm proud of, I've loved every minute of it, thanks to everyone. Day 31: Celebrate. This challenge isn’t the kind of thing I usually do but I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s been great to try new things, push myself a bit, and to see everyone else’s contributions. Cheers and good health to you all. And finally, if I may, I’m going to put in a shameless plug for my blog which I don’t update nearly as often as I should: https://dm7828.wixsite.com/sometimethewolf Day 31 #TheJanuaryChallenge #64MillionArtists For everyone who took part this month Day 30 @64M_Artists #TheJanuaryChallenge @64M_Artists @sjf40 Day 31 update. Just decided to celebrate the end of a great January challenge with a glass of homemade blackberry wine in front of the fire. Cheers everyone, here's to the next one! @64M_Artists #thejanuarychallenge #64millionartists Day 31, and what fun it’s been! I’m celebrating in the best style - a lovely pint of (local) ale from my local pub. Cheers one and all - see you in the February drawing group, or in the weekly challenges here maybe? Hope so! Xxx Day 31 of #TheJanuaryChallenge - Celebrate Do I was going to bake a cake but I ran out of time. I'll just make the wish instead...
