Draw a Dinosaur Day!

Draw a Dinosaur Day! (by RGP)

Three years ago, my awesome cousin Todd started an annual event called “Draw a Dinosaur Day!”  It’s my new favorite holiday of course and I hope you’ll all join in.  As you can see, you don’t need to be awesome with the pen/pencil/crayons/whatever to participate.  Just draw a dinosaur and have fun with it!

From Todd:

TODAY, January 30th, is my official holiday, Draw A Dinosaur Day! This will be it’s 3rd year in existence.

The concept is pretty simple really: Draw a Dinosaur!

Seriously. No rules beyond that.

Then, post it in a comment to this post or  email it to me/message it to me. My email is: todderick@gmail.com

you post it to flickr, go ahead and tag it with “Draw A Dinosaur Day
’09” … also make your own post about it, if you feel
like spreading the word.

I’ll be making a post with EVERYONES tomorrow or the next day, and I’ll send a note out with the link.

Now go! Draw, Post, spread the word! Thanks so much for participating.

So join in the fun!  If you have children, have them draw a dino too! 

Check out the post Todd mentioned above to see other people’s submissions.  And if you just want to submit them here, I’ll be happy to send them along to Todd myself.

    That is just so random and funny that I love it. I totally need to make up my own holiday and celebrate it each year. Now you got me thinking…

    Yeah you should! And if you do, let me in on it so I can play too. =D I would make one too but chances are the date would come around in a year and I’d forget, lol!
