One day a year, the world stops to remember that joy we had when we first picked up a pencil and created our first piece of art – that’s what Drawing Day is all about. The goal for Drawing Day is simple – to create enough drawings to make some noise worldwide for the sake of art. 2008 is the first year of this initiative. Our goal is definitely a long-shot, but we’re aiming for 1 million drawings worldwide.[From Drawing Day 2008 – about the big day]
I will be participating in Drawing Day this year, I think it’s a fantastic idea and a great incentive to get back to my roots and create for the pure joy of creating. Drawing is so much part of who we are as people and is natural and purely creative even if you don’t think you can draw, give it a shot! you might surprise yourself.
you can participate in Drawing Day by going to the above site and registering your interest and participating in some of the many groups that are out there. It’s as simple as picking up your pencil and paper! I will be uploading my work to the Flickr Group and the Facebook group as well as Redbubble. I may even create a sale on BoundlessGallery or Yessy – you never know!
