Fun weekend activity! How well can you draw the states?


I found this link from the Fug Girls‘ website (which is a fun gossipy site, especially on Fridays when they post links to cool websites). The “girls” are Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan, and they also wrote a really good, fun novel called “The Royal We.” Check them out if  you can.

But let’s get back to the game. It’s on the Time magazine website. The objective is to see how well you can draw each state. So it sounds boring, but it’s also addictive. And funny–I was laughing myself silly. Especially when I think I’ve got it right, but then I put the panhandle of Oklahoma on the east side instead of the west.

At the end they post a picture of what the United States would look like if all my drawings were correct, and I couldn’t stop laughing at it.

So go ahead, play along! Draw the states.

Let me know how it goes.
