Get Scribbling for National Doodle Day 2016

As an illustrator, I found that joining in with online events and occasions helped grow my sense of community, make new connections, and build my portfolio. An added bonus was that a lot of people were using the same (sometimes trending) hashtags for these occasions which furthered the reach of my posts. Some of these events benefited others too (e.g. when I drew Movember portraits in exchange for charitable donations), and that's why I'm sharing this post with you. It's a win-win!

Share your doodles via social media on National Doodle Day this Friday, February 5th. 

Use hashtags‪ #‎NationalDoodleDay‬ or ‪#‎DoodleDay‬. There's a good cause at the root of this fun opportunity: "drawing a line through epilepsy".

Sharing your doodles will raise awareness about epilepsy, and people are encouraged to donate to Epilepsy Action. 💡 Artists could fundraise by offering e.g. portrait doodles or handmade cards & donate the proceeds to Epilepsy Action. Have you planned anything for National Doodle Day?
