    Drawing Day reminds you that everything inside you is worthwhile and worthy to be shared with the world. It’s also there to bring much-needed appreciation and awareness to illustrators and artists. Anywhere you see a picture, from a business card to a beautiful mural on a painting, to every birthday card you’ve ever bought, an artist was designed in making it. The best way we can thank these intrepid creative souls is by picking up the pencil and making some noise for the lost and forgotten artists of the world. And maybe find a few more in the process.

    Today I’m travelling to London on the first class carriage and eating toast and jam at a reasonable £2. I will draw it rather than take a crass photo with which to impress my friends :)

    She should take a "classic" and have a doodle .... It might come to something.
  14. He'd give her some tips then .... I wrote to Raymond Briggs (1980) as I missed a book signing and was hoping for some pearls of wisdom ... He basically said he hates the drawing side of it because the story was already there and then he'd have to spend 18 months "drawing the bloody thing"
