#DrawingAugust 2014 … a little promotion


Artists & Illustrators Magazine Article August 2014 Issue

How excited do you think I was when I opened the latest issue of Artists & Illustrators Magazine?  The world of magazine publishing is a fraught business, if you’ve ever watched “The September Issue”.  I thought I worked to tight deadlines but you must be constantly on edge to get the following months issue off to the printer and then suddenly, you are back at the beginning going through the same stress to produce the next one.   The reason I’m rambling slightly is that I haven’t been able to speak to Steve Pill, the Editor of A&I in the last couple of weeks to confirm whether the #DrawingAugust article was going to run so you can imagine my surprise when I sat down with my glass of wine and suddenly saw this on page 9.  So, thanks to Steve and the team at Artists & Illustrators for giving us another platform to tell the world about #DrawingAugust

I’m really chuffed for #DrawingAugust to get some superb publicity in time for the 1st August 2014.  Hopefully this will encourage others to join our merry band of sketchbook huggers and commit to drawing one sketch each day in August and to share that sketch with the world of Twitter using the hashtag #DrawingAugust.

Click  here to see the recent article asking for eager volunteers to take part.  All you have to do is leave me a comment on this blog or send me a tweet on Twitter to @jeanstevens4   If you want to see more posts about #DrawingAugust just select #DrawingAugust from the category filter which is on the right hand side of this page just above the Urban Sketcher logo.

It would be great to have you on board and make 2014 as much of a success as last year.
