Each month on Complex Art+Design, we publish an enormous amount of content that spans lists, interviews, and news...even we forget how much we wrote about by the time we're on to the next one. Earlier this month, we posted The Best of Complex Art+Design 2013, which highlighted our best work from the last year, but now we're giving you the best of the best in a monthly spoonful (or rather, a plateful, if you consider this a ton of links).

In case you don't follow us on Twitter, or even if you just need a recap of the last month in art and design, here's a breakdown of our top pieces in January 2014 plus links we enjoyed around the web.
