Thanks to John Slade and Andy Potts for making it such a great evening last week and bringing such a lovely crowd with them! I had an excellent time. They worked with the colours used for their flyer which gave it all a really nice coherent style but even better they played music exclusively from film sound tracks which gave the evening a strong theme and made for an atmospheric set of pictures and sound.
What Is Heavy Pencil?Heavy Pencil is a monthly live drawing and music event at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London. Each month the best illustrators in London and the world are invited to draw live in response to music. Sometimes it's live music, mostly it's DJ's (sometimes even poetry!) but always live drawing. As the illustrators draw the process is projected on to the walls of the ICA bar.
