Battle lines drawn for The Big Draw
The day sees the return of the Battle of the Cartoonists, with seven teams of cartoonists providing a comic, contemporary response to seven tapestries based on cartoons (the non-funny kind) by Raphael.
Procartoonists.org will have a team in play and there will be a plenty of our members in the other six teams: Big Girl’s Drawers, Private Eye, Reader’s Digest, The Guardian, The Telegraph and The Sun. Read our report from the last Battle in 2010
Free cartoon workshops will also be provided, courtesy of the Procartoonists.org members Wilbur Dawbarn, Robert Duncan, Cathy Simpson and Tim Harries.
The day will also feature talks by Quentin Blake and Gerald Scarfe and there will be pop-up studios, digital drawing games, portfolio advice from experts, and a visit from the CBeebies arts and crafts maestro Mister Maker.
All activities are free, but some require advance booking. For more information about Big Draw, Big Make and the Big Draw events taking place in October, visit campaignfordrawing.org
