The 365 project was a daily drawing challenge I gave myself for 2017. Every day, I illustrated that day’s “holiday”—a quirky, funny, or even commonly-known celebration that I find from lists on and and posted them on my instagram @cynthiajacquette. I started this project to see what I would create if I had to do a drawing every day for a year, quickly, with no time to ponder the details. Would I prefer to work on the lettering? Concentrate on characters? Fall in love with drawing food? At the very least, I created a drawing habit that didn't quit!
