Saturday is the 2nd annual Drawing Day, a day when all artists are urged to make at least one drawing and post it online in a sign of solidarity.
The organizers of the event are shooting for 1 million drawings this year. We at Drawing magazine are thrilled to be able to support this initiative, and we hope that you will respond by drawing whatever strikes your fancy and posting it to this thread on Saturday. Come on, peeps--get drawing!
For more information, read the blog post on this event here.

Count me in! This will be fun! And a great excuse to get out my dusty pencils!!
I'll be painting plein air but I will stop and sharpen the pencils..
The edit staff will choose the three most interesting drawings
posted to this thread and contact the artists to get their snail mail
address. We will mail them a free copy of Drawing Highlights, a great
compilation of articles on figure drawing. Click here to see what it's
Looking forward to tomorrow!
Here's my pencil drawing for drawing day.
She is absolutely lovely! You are so awesome with portraits!
Here is my drawing - it is a portrait of my niece’s labrador retreiver “Penny” in charcoal.
Great idea and I'm glad to take part. Two great entries already and am looking forward to the rest. I got up early to do this one. It's conte on mylar.
Thanks Bob for sweetening the pot! I already see my competition for the most interesting pieces is mighty fierce, fabulous work already posted, and I'm not thru my coffee yet!!
(Bob...maybe those of us who aren't as talented could REALLY USE it )
I'll be posting later on today.
I'd been in a slump but I had a great time with this pencil portrait. Maybe this will get me going again. Thanks for the challenge.
only 10:38 and it's a great start!
My drawing is at my blog: http://vjconokinawadrawandpaint.blogspot.com/
I tried adding it to a couple of other listed groups participating but they would not upload.
Hope this goes through ok.
