This book provides a look into the hearts of artists around the world. For one day in June 2011 thousands of artist young and old came together to draw a million draws. Those draws united people everywhere with beauty and inspiration, in a brief hope that for one day all was well with the world. Those artists that submitted drawing that June day shared more then digital canvas they shared a love to draw and a kinship from all ends of the world. Mick Gow's dream of encouraging artists to come together for a day to draw a millions draws was more then a dream it was a belief in those who no matter what the abilities or skill or talent could share their love of art. This book does that and more.
One thing that annoyed me greatly was to see pieces that were highly detailed (like mine on p104) shrunk down, impossible to make out. I believe the layout was poorly done and could've been improved to have the more detailed pieces larger or on a full page to be appreciated (hopefully this will be dealt with in the next book).
Otherwise this is a really nice collection of work with something for everyone in. Digital and traditional with artist interviews and events taken from people participating globally.
