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.
