January – Kim Haesook

Are you ready to start the new year? Would you like a creative challenge?

1000 Drawings – Daejeon is hosting a daily drawing challenge in which we invite someone from our community to come up with a prompt for each day of the month.

The prompts for January were prepared by Kim Haesook, an artist and a valuable member of the 1000 Drawings – Daejeon team. Heasook’s current work is titled City Mirror; About Looking. Her work challenges the viewer to look at the world around them more deeply. Her prompts will definitely get you out of your comfort zone. Are you up for the challenge?

More about Kim Haesook and her work:

Haesook Kim is a papercut artist from Daejeon. Her work transforms two-dimensional planes of paper into three-dimensional landscapes of possibility. She is currently working on the theme of ‘City Mirror,’ which uses images of buildings or buildings reflected in glass.

Keep in mind that one drawing a day can become quite challenging.

It is up to you how you tackle this challenge. If you are feeling ambitious, challenge yourself to make a drawing a day. If you’d like to spend more time with one prompt that is completely fine too. It’s 100% up to you.

Use the daily drawing challenge to:

  • Develop a skill or a technique you are interested in
  • Play with new techniques
  • Unwind and focus on one thing at the end of the day
  • Challenge yourself to do something consistently for a year
  • Connect with other people who are joining the challenge
