June 6th is Drawing Day everyone! Initiated in 2008, Drawing Day is a not for profit, worldwide drawing event that encourages everyone to drop everything and draw for the sake of art. The goal of drawing day is to inject more illustration and art into our communities, show appreciation to fellow artists, and spread awareness of the joy of drawing.
Participating is easy. All you have to do is:
1. Draw something – then scan and upload to one of the participating websites (Deviant Art, YouTube, Facebook, Rate My Drawings are just a few), or
2. Visit one of the participating websites that allows you to draw online.
3. Remember to mention Drawing Day 2009 when you participate.
The goal is to have 1 million drawings uploaded and/or drawn online on this one day. I for one will be participating and will post my drawing on Deviant Art and on my personal website.
