June 6 - It's World Drawing Day today

If it's June 6 where you are, then Drawing Day has arrived!

For half of the world, Drawing Day has already begun so - Happy Drawing Day!

We've just launched our online gallery where you can keep track of drawings as they're being uploaded to the various participating websites - Check out the gallery here

The most important part now is to Start Drawing! Everything you need to know about how to participate is available here.

The second, and just as important step is to spread the word! Email all your friends, tell them about the Drawing Day website and how to participate. This is a world-wide event and the biggest strength we all have as artists is our voice. If you own a blog, blog about the event. If you're a twitter user, then please tweet each time you create a drawing with links to your art and our website. You can also follow us on Twitter, which is a great way to stay updated about Drawing Day over this weekend.

Drawing Day - Days away, get ready to draw!

OK, this is where we get on our knees and beg you to spread the world about Drawing Day more than ever ;) Email all your friends and let them know you'll be drawing and tell them to keep an eye out for your drawings online.

As much as drawing on the day is what it's all about, please share links to your drawings with all your friends. Spreading the word is just as important on Drawing Day. The larger art communities will all take notice if they start to see a huge influx of drawings tagged with the words "drawing day" in their titles and descriptions so be sure to do that. Join our groups on Facebook, Flickr, YouTube, etc. - it really does make a difference!

We also would like to really encourage some of you to record video captures of you drawing in illustrator, photoshop, MS Paint, etc. and we will feature these videos on our YouTube channel. If you have a webcam, you can even record yourself drawing on paper.

Excited yet? We are!
