Back in January, we asked you to share your illustrations about what you would do with a 25th hour in the day.
"...Imagine that an hour has been added to each day, 30 hours to each month, 360 to each year. Sure you could always add an hour to your day by cutting back on something. But what if you didn't have to? What if tomorrow all of a sudden you had an extra hour to play with? What would you do?"
Some fantastic submissions have come in this time around and unlike previous editions where we've carefully selected a "winner" for the project, we're asking for you to help us make that choice. Voting will end on Friday, February 22.
Besides quality of image, look for things like staying true to the theme, clever writing, and uniqueness. The winner will get a GOOD T-shirt and free subscription (or gift subscription) to the magazine.
Please check out all 15 pieces and vote below on your favorite submission.

With one more hour in a day, I'd meditate. I don't seem to take enough time to just clear my head. Somehow, through this lack of thought, I seem to be able to relate with my fellow humans easier.

If I had one more hour per day I would spend it on sleep.

What I concluded, from participating in this doodle, is that an extra hour a day would just be a nice bonus. I would bake pies, visit my grandma, and spend a lot of time wondering what to do with all those 24-hour timepieces.

Being raised between the U.S. and Europe has made me be really open to new things, changes and experiences. That also has been a great influence in my creative life. I studied Graphic Design in Spain and I am currently attending Columbia College Chicago.
If I had one more hour a day, 30 a month and 360 in a year, I would look for 360 ways to learn, travel, draw, create, eat, dream, recycle, relax, dance, find and listen to new bands, meet new people, and make mistakes.

I struggled with whether I should approach this by showing how each specific day would be affected, or how much change I could accomplish cumulatively... then I figured I might as well just answer it honestly. Don't judge me.

More time for the things that make my world go round.
As a full time student working three jobs the little things in life tend to get neglected. Gulping hot coffee, scrounging for clean socks whether they match or not, being serenaded by my squeaky bike, trying to ignore that stack of books for class waiting to be read, and glancing wistfully outside on a beautiful day—this is my usual 24 hours. With just one more hour, maybe, just maybe these things would get done.
But honestly, I'd probably just sleep.

As a parent, spending time with your child is paramount but at times more difficult than it seems. If there did happen to be a 25th hour in the day I would do my best to spend it with my daughter. That's where 'doodle with my daughter' originated.
Being an architect we always have leftover test prints in the office. So I took a couple sheets home as an experiment. This was an A0 sheet, which means that when your daughter is as old as mine, nearly 2 years old, you can make life size tracings of her and all her favourite toys! So by stealing 15 minutes here and there we managed to produce this doodle together, hopefully the fun we had comes through!

I keep finding out about this too late. Need that 25th hour just to submit on time. Or perhaps to check GOOD more often.

If I had another hour in the day I would divide it up and use the minutes to do all the things I love in life. From cuddling my girlfriend to Facebooking, to yes—even digesting my food in the morning.
