    McDonald's

    The chain has over 35,000 locations around the world, so you definitely should have recognized that one.

    Target

    I mean, the logo is the name. That one should have been pretty easy.

    Volkswagen

    C'mon. The "V" and the "W" are right there, clear as day. I'm not THAT bad at drawing, am I?

    Taco Bell

    I couldn't tell you what exactly a taco bell is or what it does. Is it a bell filled with tacos? A bell you ring when you want tacos? Who knows.

    Saab

    The red griffin was introduced to the Saab logo in 1984, after the company merged with Scania. It's derived from the coat of arms from the cities that the two companies were originally founded in.

    Arm & Hammer

    It's got an arm. It's got a hammer. What more could you ask for in a logo?

    General Electric

    The General Electric logo has looked pretty much just like that since 1900, so it should be familiar to most people.

    There's no better symbol for a wealth management company than a bull, which in trading traditionally represents a positive market.

    Chevron

    Like Target earlier, the logo is the name, but it's a much less recognizable brand for most people, so it's a tough one to get right.

    Valero

    This one is probably pretty tough for most people, but Valero is one of the biggest companies in the world. They own a ton of gas stations, so you've probably filled up your tank at a Valero company at least a few times before.

Wow. You were not good at that, and I don't think my drawings were totally to blame.

Not too bad. I'll admit, some of those drawings were pretty bad, so some of the ones you missed were totally my fault.

Really good job. Those drawings were terrible, and you still managed to get a majority of them right.
