For those of you out there new to Drink & Draw, here’s how it goes. Grab a beer, wine or cocktail of choice. Sit. This is life drawing, but no nakedness of course. I frequently ask for models from the crowd, the willing staff of Town Square or LOFT buddies to pose for a series of drawings. We start with 2 minute poses, moving up to 5 minutes then 10 minutes, sitting or standing.
There’s a break and we intersperse with getting attendees to draw the person, next to or opposite them. After an hour and a half or so, you are asked to submit your favourite drawing to be voted for. The most votes wins first prize, a voucher from Town Square and their drawing framed, by Framewerk. Runner up gets the voucher from Inkmonkey. Everyone gets that deeply sought appreciation from their peers and we all have a good time.
Glenn Kennedy’s been doing the branding and identity work for Drink & Draw at Town Square and for the third time he’s nailed it with this awesome sharpener wine glass amalgamation for our poster. If Drink & Draw sounds like your bag, click through and hit attend on our event page. On a sidenote, if you missed Illustrate last time round. (It was the week after Drink & Draw) It will also make a triumphant return in July with more professional doodlers taking to the boards, providing some live illustration! Hopefully you can catch both.
