(thanks to Will for the brilliant poster design!)

We’re going to be at The Southern (22-26 South Clerk Street, Edinburgh EH8 9PR) on Friday the 20th of February from 8pm, so come along and bring your sketchbooks! We’ve got some great drawing games planned, but as ever feel free to come along and work on your own stuff too.

Bad Santas and a Christmas Collaborative Comic

Hey, it was great to see so many of you at the Christmas Drink and Draw on Sunday night!

For those of you who couldn’t make it, we were mostly drawing Bad Santas – the Father Christmasses of your nightmares. As you can imagine that got pretty dark pretty fast, but here are a few of the more publishable ones:

We also had a comic going around the table, with everybody taking a turn to do half a page – the result is magnificent! But, uhh… this is a family friendly blog and the language is kind of colourful so I’m not going to publish the whole thing. Here are the first two pages though:

If you want a printed copy let me know and I’ll try to bring it along to the next meet-up!

The deadline for the ELC Secret Santa drawing exchange is upon us today – hope you’re all as excited as I am to see the results. They’ll be going up on the blog soon, so watch this space!

We’re holding a Christmas themed Drink and Draw night this Sunday! 

You’ll find us in The Southern (22-26 South Clerk Street) from 7pm on the 21st.

Knock up some last minute Christmas cards for your folks, work on whatever it is you’re working on at the moment, or just draw anything else you like! There’ll be a couple of activities to get you started as well, but please bring your own materials!

Secret Santa:

If you haven’t done so already, this is also your LAST CHANCE to sign up for our ELC Secret Santa drawing exchange! Everyone who’s signed up will have their recipient randomly assigned to them shortly, so you can spend Sunday trying to guess from their furtive looks who’s drawn your name.

Have a great Christmas, all you comics people!

Monster Evolution!

Well, it’s safe to say that we all explored the darkest recesses of our minds at last Thursday’s Hallowe’en Drink and Draw

We mostly played a game called Monster Evolution, in which one person draws a ‘starter’ monster and everyone else develops on it until the original has evolved way beyond recognition and (in some cases) decency.

Here are a couple of the more complete taxonomies we created (click the images to see them in their full horror glory):

What do you think, should we do more Drink and Draw meet-ups soon? A Christmas Drink and Draw?

Our next Boda meet-up is fast approaching – don’t forget, the Smörgåsbord zine swap topic for November is SUITCASE! See you then!

Hallowe’en Drink and Draw!

We’re holding a Hallowe’en* themed Drink and Draw session at The Mad Hatter bar in Edinburgh on the 30th of October!

(thanks to Stephen for designing the spine chillingly terrifying poster!)

We’ll have some horrifying activities on the go to resurrect your creativity, or you can feel free to work on your own blood curdling drawings. Bring materials and a sense of the macabre.

From 8pm we’ll be in the downstairs area of the bar. It’s at 8 Torphichen Place (near Haymarket Station): here’s a map.

Looking forward to seeing some of you there!
