I love to draw. It's pretty much what I do. If I'm not being a lazy chump sitting around in my underwear, I'm probably drawing in some fashion (also in my underwear). It is the most fundamental form of art. Before you can create other forms of traditional art work, you have to understand drawing. I personally prefer it over everything else anyway. Pencils, charcoal, pastels, markers, ink, crayons, whatever. I love it all. June 2nd is the day of celebration this year. Drawing day.

So how do you celebrate this fantastical day? Marble sculptures. NO! You believed me. Dummy. You draw obviously. And since we live in the age of technology and sharing your every waking thought and action, you should upload it to share with the world. Instagram it, Tweet, Facebook, Deviantart, Redbubble, or whatever else you can think of. Share it with on the interwebs and spread the word. I promise that whatever you draw is better than somebody else's status. "Just finished my corn flakes #breakfast." #WhoCares. Now if you post a sweet drawing you did, I'm all about that.

So lemme share one of my current favorite DrAwLeRs. His name is Shohei Otomo, from Tokyo (obvi). He just so happens to be Katsuhiro Otomo's son (who happens to have done one of my faovirte graphic novels/anime). Amazing artist's clearly run in the family.

In case you needed to feel bad about your work, these are ball point pen drawings. Ya.

So much detail.

So much detail.

 

And if those weren't enough I'm gonna leave with a speed video of him drawing. Even if this makes you feel bad about drawing (as in my case) I hope it motivates you and pumps you up for Drawing Day (also my case). So get on it!
