The beginning of the new year usually signifies ambitious artists embarking on a strenuous and courageous journey of creating a piece of art every day for 365 days! Below are some of the ones that I follow on Instagram. I really love these projects because you get to see the growth these artists experience throughout this adventure. Some of artists have just started, some are in the middle of their ride, and others have just ended, but are definitely worth checking out.
Do you follow any #Project365 artists? Comment away!

I love finding projects where an artist has the discipline and dedication to create a piece of artwork 365 days in a row for an entire year—it’s such a monumental task to produce something creative and challenging for so many consecutive days. My favorite part of these projects is seeing the constant growth of the artist’s abilities. If you take something that was produced on day 1 of the project, and compare it to the final piece on day 365, the progress seems truly incredible and inspiring. I’ve contemplated a 365 day project, but I knew that I wouldn’t be able to devote myself so vehemently for a year, so my 52 week typography quotes project was my attempt at growing and nurturing my skills as a typography addict. But never say never…so maybe one day I’ll finally take the plunge!
So…now that I have rambled on for a full paragraph, lets get to the main subject of this post—Tim Bontan. He is one of the brave souls that I discovered on Instagram dedicating himself in 2014, to what he calls, #Project365. Inspired by Scott Biersack’s Project365 (whom I interviewed for a post a few months back), Tim is setting out to push himself to a higher level with his hand-lettering by producing 365 consecutive pieces of work.
Check out some of my favorite pieces so far, and make sure to follow Tim’s progress along. You never know, maybe he’ll be your inspiration for a 365 day project!
