Drawing Day Embraces Web 2.0

Artists, make sure to mark June 7 on your calendar this year. Coined Drawing Day, the celebration aims to push artists and illustrators to bring attention to their art by utilizing Web 2.0. The goal is quite lofty; to upload 1 million drawings in a single day.

“It’s time artists embraced social networking as a way to showcase their art,” says founder Mick Gow. “One million drawings for our first year of this event may seem hard to imagine. Artists always dream big, so are we.”

Drawings can be created via any graphics software or by simply scanning drawings created on paper. Participants then submit these drawings to one of several social networking websites listed at

If you’re interested in joining a unified front designed to remind people of the joy of drawing, regardless of their artistic ability, the Website has a series of banners and buttons available to help promote the event.
