Sketchy B*tches Burton V Blake

Burton V Blake!

Push your portrait-drawing skills to next level FIERCE at the second of the Sketchy B*tches specials at The Cartoon Museum!

To mark the start of Inktober, this time around we’re drawing on inspiration from two of our favourite ink-loving illustrators: Tim Burton and Sir Quentin Blake.

We’ll begin with a few warm-up challenges to get us into the groove of drawing in the style of the aforementioned LEGENDS, and look at some reference materials too, in case anyone is unfamiliar.

We’ll then each take a turn to pose for the rest of the group to draw mini portraits of us, which we’ll get to take home at the end of the night. When it comes to your turn to sit, you’ll get to decide whether you’d like to be a Burton-style Corpse B*tch, or a Blake-style Sketchy Witch!!

These will be short sharp poses and we’ll be playing with a variety of materials - Inktense pencils, calligraphy pens, charcoal, coloured pencils, markers and more! Feel free to BYO if you prefer.

Beginner or pro, exploring and drawing in the style of other artists is a great way to develop your own style and skills - or mix things up a bit if you fancy a break from the norm! So come get your Sketchy Witch on, B*tch!!!

Tickets £12 in advance - £14 on the door

NB: The session will start at 6.30pm prompt so please ensure you arrive on time! You’re welcome to come earlier and check out the exhibition too - any time from 5pm. BYO bottle/picnic dinner as there’s no bar!
