Drawing Day is a worldwide drawing event which encourages everyone to drop everything and draw for the sake of art and creativity. The aim is to get artists across the interweb to create and upload 1 million drawings within 24 hours. Drawing Day 2011 falls on Saturday the 4th of June. RedBubble artists have always been great supporters of Drawing Day and this year the organisers are offering you the chance to create a Drawing Day design which will appear on Drawing Day merchandise. For more information about the day and why it exists, visit the Drawing Day website.
The entries will be shortlisted by the community through the voting process. The final three winners will be selected from the top 20 by RedBubble and the Drawing Day organisers. RedBubble and Drawing Day will select final winners at their sole discretion. The official logo is available for inspiration but you are not required to reference this in your design. Designs must be uploaded using the RedBubble t-shirt template and the preview should be set to a white background. If it’s not on a white tee, it’s not getting in!
