Tonight, This Guy’s Going To Start Drawing For 24 Hours Straight

07.12.12 Andy Cush

You heard right–artist Mike Perry will be performing a “24-Hour Interactive Drawathon,” starting at six this evening. He’ll be streaming the whole affair from his YouTube channel, as well as live tweeting it, natch. He’s also asking viewers to take part by doing their own drawings and submitting them on Twitter via the #sketchswap hashtag. The drawathon is intended to draw attention to Wondering Around Wandering, a temporary community-oriented event space Perry hopes to open in Brooklyn. So, is this mammoth test of endurance and creativity but a simple publicity stunt? Yes, but it’s for a good cause, and hopefully some decent art will come of it.
