The 24 hour drawathon proved to be one of the most fun events in SHOP history. Thank you to everyone who contributed, from Simon who wanted to do it and organised it, to the people who tweeted their support.
Not only was it fun, but it also achieved its aim of encouraging people to be creative, whether they draw all of the time, or haven't done it since school. Those who already draw, said being given the opportunity to concentrate on a project, or just concentrate on drawing for a set amount of time really helped their creative process (although it didn't particularly feel like that 19 hours in at 7am on Sunday morning!), whereas people who hadn't drawn for a long time realised how much they enjoyed it and how widely beneficial it can be.
Here's some examples of the drawings done throughout the 24 hour period; from Pictionary scribbles to people passing through and stopping off to contribute a drawing, to those who spent the entire 24 hours:
