On Drawing Day June 6 at midnight SL Time, I will be starting a 24
hour drawing vigil. I'll have my Wacom pen in-place-of-a-lance as I
draw non-stop (aside from bio-breaks). You can join me on this
marathon by drawing and uploading your works for display inworld. We
have setup a special gallery inworld where you may display your pieces
drawn on this special day pro bono:

When is Drawing Day?
Drawing Day this year is June 06, 2009. Unless otherwise noted,
Drawing Day will be the first Saturday of June each year.
What is Drawing Day?
One day a year, the world stops to remember that joy we had when we
first picked up a pencil and created our first piece of art - that's
what Drawing Day is all about. The goal for Drawing Day is simple - to
create enough drawings to make some noise worldwide for the sake of
art. 2008 is the first year of this initiative. Our goal is definitely
a long-shot, but we're aiming for 1 million drawings worldwide. We
have no precise measure to know if we reach this goal. If we come
close we will all definitely know. Even if we reach 10% of our goal in
the first year of this initiative, it will be a great achievement but
we will continue aiming for the magic million. Check out our press

Whether you're a professional illustrator or you just enjoy the
occasional scribble, you can give back to the illustration community
by drawing on this day. By injecting more and more illustration and
art into our community, we are not only showing our appreciation to
our fellow artists, but we are spreading awareness of the joy of
drawing. It is important that you contribute - Drawing Day will only
be a success if we all participate and make some noise. So, please
tell your friends and spread the word.
How do I participate?
To join in on this event is simple - as simple as picking up a pencil
and drawing. However, the most important part is sharing your art with
