Drawing August Anyone?


This is the 4th year for #drawingaugust – it’s great that people still want to do it. So as we approach August this year, I’m putting out the annual call.

I’m not keeping a list of participants this year, all you have to do is the following;

  • On 1st of August, make a new drawing.  The choice of subject is yours
  • Take a photo of your drawing or make a scan of it.
  • Post the photo/scan on Twitter using the hashtag #drawingaugust. Also put the date on it.
  • REPEAT the process every single day until 31st August.

At the end of the month you can look back on 31 drawings that you’ve produced; see your progress and remember summertime memories!  You can also be part of a great community of creatives who encourage each other, especially in August.

Wales Arts Review published a great article (thank you Gary).  If you want to know more about how Dean and I started this movement, click here to read it.

  1. So excited! Last year I managed 26 days, which was sort of miraculous and very enjoyable and instructive. Looking forward to starting fresh on 1 August – even bought a little folding chair to carry into the woods so I can sit longer 🙂

  2. I can’t believe it’s year four! And you’ve made a daily drawing every day since, wow! That’s a real achievement.

    I’m not committing to DA this year, my energy levels don’t really accommodate a daily commitment at the moment, but I’ll be with you in spirit 💪🏻
