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.
