2009 World Drawing Day Aims For One Million Drawings
World Drawing Day is an online art event supported by online art communities that encourages people around the world to drop everything and draw. In its second year, the event aims to get close to its goal of one million drawings in one day.
It is completely free and simple to get involved. Drawings can be created via any graphics software or by simply scanning drawings created on paper. Participants then submit these drawings to any of several online art communities or social networking websites listed at http://www.drawingday.org [drawingday.org]
2008 was the first year of our Drawing Day initiative. Websites such as Facebook, YouTube™, Flickr™, deviantART and RateMyDrawings.com had great success in encouraging artists to participate. Founder Mick Gow has high hopes for the 2009 event. "From the response and constant emails we receive, we know that Drawing Day is something the art world really needs and loves. One million drawings in a day is a huge goal and we'll keep aiming for this magic number,” says Gow.
