Drawing Day Blog - worldwide drawing event

Can a few artists create a worldwide drawing event?

So a few of us came up with the idea of Drawing Day. With one week to go we're pretty excited - I mean how can you just make up an event and expect the whole world to participate?

Drawing Day 2008

It's a good question but the answer is pretty simple really. Because we can ;)

It's a really exciting time on the web where social networking has such an amazing power. There are average Joe's (and Jill's) making YouTube videos about scratching their nose with their left index finger capturing the attention of millions of viewers.

The great thing about Drawing Day is that it's an art event, and you won't find more passionate people than artists. We have some awesome art communities getting involved in Drawing Day but what's really interesting when we look at the traffic statistics of the Drawing Day website is that collectively we get more people visiting our website from single passionate artists than any other way. We receive emails every day from single artists saying "We love this event and totally support it and will write a blog". Sure, this blog might only send us 10 visitors, but when there are hundreds of you artists doing this is really adds up!

So, there may only be a few individuals behind this initiative, but with all the artists around the world getting excited that's one big voice. Remember, we're doing this out of love and have no funding, have never asked for donations and are simply relying on the artists voice and the power of the web.

So here's what we need to really make a statement...
DIGG this story, show the world that a few passionate artists can be backed by a world of passionate artists and come up with a world-wide event that injects the web with more drawings and art than you can poke a mouse at.
