There is one week to go until the next Draw North West Meet-Up in Manchester!
All North West (and visiting!) Creatives welcome!
I am very thankful for Draw North West, because after Uni a lot of my friends moved away and I felt very isolated. Illustration can be a very solitary profession as it is, and if you don't 'go to work' because you work from home or otherwise, it can be very hard to meet new people who are all doing the same!
So, it was an absolute pleasure and delight to discover a whole new community of previously dispersed fellow artists. I have made many close friends and I can genuinely say that it has changed my life for the better and made me so much happier! So, the idea of meeting friends and getting out of our 'Mole Holes' as I call it, is what I wanted to convey and celebrate with this poster :) So, if you're in the area and in the creative industry, I encourage you to come along and say Hello! We often get asked if you need to be able to draw, and the answer is no, of course not! Draw North West is a place to meet fellow creatives and make new friends, whatever area of the industry you work in :) We're all very friendly and it's a very chilled out affair, usually involving many burgers and copious amounts of drinking ;) Sometimes we even draw too :)
