Today an unusual site caught my attention. Not because it seems immediately useful though there’s potential for that. It’s called MyDrawings and the idea is that everyone shares one canvas that stretches on forever. Just scroll to a blank area and start editing. Note that to edit the canvas, registration is required.
While at first glance this might seem like a purely whimsical pursuit, I see a new potential avenue for artist advertisement and perhaps eventually a way for illustrators to discover more specifically what draws the human eye.
The canvas works just like Google Maps, with the ability to click and drag to new areas of the “graffiti map”. I can also see this being a source of inspiration for writers looking for a prompt.
On a larger level this electronic canvas captures the diversity of human perception.
