What if we brought a bunch of creatives together with four illustrators, tunes and drinks on a Sunday afternoon? We couldn't expect the result either. With these main ingredients we organised, together with Grafik, our first Drink&Draw XL: a festive finale after a month full of A paper / a day.
What is Drink & Draw XL?
An afternoon of drawing together. With refreshing drinks. Great tunes. No rules or limits, but plenty of inspiration provided by four illustrators. On Sunday 30 October some eighty creatives joined us with their favourite drawing materials at La Vallée (Brussels)! Each hour illustrators Charlotte Dumortier, Jango Jim Azam Masoumzadeh and Lukas Verstraete took care of some live drawing challenges on the tunes of DJ Gelukwens.
