Drag to set position!

Welcome to Stop.Draw.Run the home of 10 minute draws. Please introduce yourself in the forum. The group pool is moderated. You can only add a maximum of 5 images to the group per day. We know if you spent more than 10 minutes :)

The concept is simple. Stop, draw for 10 minutes then bugger off!

My latest interview, with flickr user NC Mallory is now up at

Group Description

Parkinson's Law states that work expands to fill the time available.

It follows then that a page or canvas gets filled - its almost obligatory unless you are restrained or have developed the discipline of a Zen monk.

The idea behind this group is to capture some of the spontaneity, idiosyncrasies or spirit if you like, of the artist with simple boundaries.

1. You have to STOP
2. You draw (paint or whatever) for 10 minutes
3. You move on (you can run if you like but its not compulsory

That's it. The only limits to the group are no photography (unless its of your 10 minute draw of course - but scans usually look better, don't they?)

Think of it like Twitter for artists. 10 minutes, that's it.

Your work should expand to fill the time available and you should find it a lot of fun.

Group Rules

Here's the deal.
We want your stuff!
But your stuff has to be created within 10 minutes.
Not more.
Maybe less.
That's it.

Do not talk about fight club.
