2010 World Drawing Day -- Artists rally to create one million drawings
World Drawing Day (June 5 2010) is an online art event supported by online art communities that encourages people around the world to drop everything and draw. In its third year, the event aims to encourage people to create one million drawings.
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]
"We had some amazing responses over the past two years and expect this year to be just as inspiring. We had several participants draw non-stop for 24 hours or draw all weekend with very few breaks". 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 2010 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.
