Cartoon Fig on Tour

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • Hi everyone,

    I'm currently organising (trying to get off the ground!) Cartoon Fig on Tour...

    The idea is to organise sessions at host venues which have some connection with animation, illustration, character design etc.

    Our visit to the animation company Th1ng was an interesting idea and got lots of interest from members. I think there's a lot of potential in taking our dynamic figure drawing sessions around to related organisations / companies / institutions. The benefits are:

    hopefully a free venue
    good way to network
    insider view of each host venue
    sessions in different areas of London
    possible future collaborations
    new members

    Venues I've approached so far (nothing scheduled yet but I'll keep trying):

    Cartoon Museum
    Chelsea Arts Club
    University of the Arts London

    Please post any ideas for venues / thoughts on this in the ideas section!

    Another idea would be to team up with
    the writers meet up group
    and draw them...that could be interesting

    I have just had an idea for drawing in a pub. It could be advertised as a special
    Drawing Event by the pub, we could offer
    to draw 5 minutes portraits of the other
    customers, and then sell it to them
    or exchange them for drinks.
    Pubs would like it as a way of bringing
    people in and we could get free models
    and perhaps drinks or even money.
    Win win situation.
