Drawling a drawing

Okay listen to me, guys.

The word is "draw". Something that has been drawn is a "drawing".
"Drawl", however, means something else entirely.
You draw a drawing, you do not "drawl" a "drawling".
Pronouncing it this way is one thing-- a bit annoying at times, but I'll chalk it up to accent, whatever. At least it's better than "libary". However, just five minutes ago I just saw someone on an oekaki spell it this way. On purpose.
Do not do this.

Likewise, a "drawer" is something you put things in, it is not a person.
A person who draws is an artist or an illustrator-- not a "drawer".
