If you're totally unaware of what this is, check our last announcement. To summarize however, the Drawabox instructional staff (Uncomfortable and his TAs) need a break to recharge, so we're trying to run quarterly events to thank students for their support, give them a change of pace, and ultimately provide something other than homework for them to do as we take some much needed time off.
Each day we're releasing a new drawing prompt. Students who participate will earn new achievements, unique avatars, and even double credits for the month of July (more info on this further down). Of course, you're not being forced to participate, but we'd still appreciate it if those of you on the official critique track took a break as well, so we don't get hit by a big mountain of submissions afterwards. Don't worry - any credits expiring during or soon after the event have received an extension.
Just remember - even if you don't want to participate in the promptathon, we do urge you to take a break from your homework yourself, as that is the only way we can reasonably give our TAs a vacation.
