What is World Drawing Day?

The next World Drawing Day will be sometime in June, 2013. Nothing posted about this year on the site, so far. Drawing Day

“Drawing Day is a world-wide event encouraging everyone to drop everything and draw on one day. Simply draw, then submit drawings to our website or any of our participating websites.”

One day each year just pretend you can draw. Even if you can already draw, draw something more. Challenge yourself.

As a kid and a teenager and then a young woman, I always thought I could not draw. Even now, I know I’m not a great artist. It doesn’t matter. I can draw. I can draw because I want to. I enjoy drawing just because I want to do it. I don’t have to be great, I don’ t have to make masterpieces or get something in a gallery (other than the gallery I made myself).

World Drawing Day is a day for people who want to draw. People who wish they could draw and all those people who think they can’ t draw. On World Drawing Day you don’t need any special qualifications. Just draw.

Dear My Funny Valentine

My Funny Valentine lyrics

My funny Valentine
Sweet comic Valentine
You make me smile with my heart

Your looks are laughable
Unphotographable
Yet you’re my fav’rite work of art

Is your figure less than Greek
Is your mouth a little weak
When you open it to speak
Are you smart?

Don’t change a hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little Valentine
Stay!
Each day is valentine’s day

Comic Press for WordPress Comic Publishers

Comic Press – is a theme to be used with the WordPress blogging software for publishing a comic to the Web. ComicPress can be downloaded for free. ComicPress is developed and maintained by Tyler Martin, who originally created it for publishing his own comic, Wally & Osborne. Unlike other WordPress themes that are designed to be your final layout, ComicPress has a basic and clean layout that looks good as is, or is easy enough for you to build on. With just a couple images and a few color code changes in the Stylesheet you can have your own custom comic Website in no time. Check out what some people are doing with ComicPress in our featured section.

Fan Art for Mill City Fiasco

This would be me, visiting Mill City, see below for the Fiasco. I’ve been thinking about upgrading my stick figure grrls to something more fleshed out. Not sure if they should be cute or sexy. More likely it will be whatever I can draw without needing to take half a day just to get it close to being recognizable.

One thing I do know about drawing a comic is that it can’t be too detailed if you hope to get them out there on a regular basis. Maybe it’s different for those who aren’t hand drawing each one. I really should read more about the whole thing. There are so many things on that “read more about” list already. I’m going to need to live to be very very old to ever catch up.
