remember this game?

i used to love the ‘draw something, fold it over, pass it on, draw something else’ game. did it ever have an actual name? i’m not sure.

anyway, the ‘campaign for drawing’ initiative has turned this game it into an online web gadget. i’m definitely going to use this as inspiration for a SoulPancake creative challenge.

here’s a rather awesome one i found in the gallery.

i also love the mission of the campaign for drawing project:

“Its long-term ambition is to change the way drawing is perceived by educationalists and the public. This has won support from leading practitioners in the creative industries and in art, architecture and design colleges, signalling an overdue realisation that drawing is fundamental to the training of students in these disciplines. The Campaign takes a wider view. It sees drawing as a basic human skill useful in all walks of life.

The Campaign’s work will finish when the words ‘I can’t draw’ are dropped from our vocabulary.”

i then sent my friend ryan the challenge and together we created this magic.

in other web gadget news, this little tool created by The Times tells gives you a score on your vocabulary based on your twitter feed. i think i did ok. i want to follow the nerds that made it into the top ten.

    I’m honoured for the mention on your hallowed blob-o, but I can’t help but notice “telemarketer” was sighted as evidence of you impressive vocab. telemarketer.
