May 21, 2010 - PRLog -- Online art communities are working together for the third world Drawing Day. June 5 2010 is the date for this years online event that is  driven by art and social networking communities. For Drawing Day, artists both professional and amateur are being asked to visit the Drawing Day website at http://www.drawingday.org/ to see a list of websites they you can participate on the 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]. If you prefer a more interactive approach, there will be various websites listed that will be hosting online drawing events that allow you to create drawings directly in your browser by using a mouse or drawing tablet. Some artists are even recording videos of themselves drawing and posting them on YouTube. Participants are then encouraged to spread the word by sharing these drawings with their friends. The website also offers tools to help spread the word, such as a countdown to place on your website or blog.

"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.
