Jake Parker, creator of Antler Boy, Missile Mouse, Skull Chaser, Little Bot and Sparrow, and Inktober.
Is asking for help to promote his World Art Drop Day.
All artists, (that means students and professionals, painters and cartoonists, sculptors and illustrators, animators and fine artists, EVERYONE who creates) this September 2nd* is World Art Drop Day. Wherever you find yourself that day, drop a piece of your art and tell someone where to find it. The world needs this right now. We need to feel a little more connection to each other and there’s nothing like the bond two random strangers can make through the act of creating and giving.
“I recently just finished a cross-country art drop this summer and it was exhilarating. The emails and responses I received from the finders ran the gamut of funny to touching. I want that for everyone!”
Here’s how it works:
Draw a picture and hide it somewhere.
Take a photo of either the art or the hiding spot or a combination of both.
Post the image, the city you dropped it in, and a hint on any social media of your choice. Be sure to included the hashtag: #artdropday
Then move on, hoping someone finds it. OR hang around and meet your new friend.
I need your help spreading the word on this. Reblog it, retweet it, facebook it, or even tell someone in person!
September 2nd, lets connect the whole planet with art!
Grew up in AZ on a pop culture diet of comics, animation, and movies. Now I write and draw my own comics, illustrate books, and create concept art for television, film, and advertising.
I’m the creator of the Missile Mouse graphic novel series published by Scholastic. For the last several years I worked for Blue Sky Studios creating sets and environments for feature films like Horton hears a Who, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, Rio, and Epic.
