So, who’s up for a challenge? Are you a person who needs an external stimulus to give you a nudge and get you going? If so, read on.
The clue is in the title; Drawing August. August has 31 days and for each of those days I challenge you to draw a sketch or picture and post it on Twitter. It doesn’t matter what you draw or how good (or bad) you think your drawing is, what’s important is that you draw. It’s said that it takes 30 days to form a habit and I hope that by joining in you will get the drawing bug.
Why Twitter? (A good question). This all started from a tweet chat with @OlderthanEvil – interesting name! We both said we need to draw more and so this challenge was born.
It would be great to get as many people drawing as possible in August, let’s see how big we can make this. If you can’t fully commit, don’t worry, just post what you can and keep it up as much as possible.
So, to give you some encouragement here are all the people that have either signed up to the total challenge or posting some drawing throughout August.

If you’ve signed up to #DrawingAugust and I’ve not listed your name, let me know and I will add you on.
I’ll tweet and blog some more information a bit nearer the time, so keep an eye out for it. For those of you not familiar with twitter the # tag is a way of everyone posting so we can all see each others posts – it’s important that we do this, or we might miss some of the wonderful drawing that get tweeted.
So, let me know if you want to join the happy band of enthusiasts listed above!
Come on, you know you want to.
