This week sees not one but two Heavy Pencil (in association with the ICA) events – where some of London's most in-demand illustrators draw live to a soundtrack provided by DJs and live acts...
First up is Heavy Pencil East – tomorrow evening (Wednesday March 10) at Catch, 22 Kingsland Road in Shoreditch – which will feature live drawing by Adrian Johnson, Al Murphy, Hannah Waldron and Charlie Duck, who will all put pen paper to a soundtrack provided by two bands - Three Beards and illustrator Andrew Rae's musical combo, The Marmosets – not to mention a DJ set by CR's very own Gav (aka G the P).
All the illustrations created during the course of the event will be stuck up on the walls and offered for sale at the end of the night. Details on Facebook and also on the poster designed by Rae:
Then, on Thursday night (March 11), at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in central London, Heavy Pencil is taking place alongside the Birds Eye View film festival's closing party. In keeping with that party's theme of femmes fatales, Heavy Pencil has enlisted the talents of set design and art direction duo, Anna Lomax and Lauren Davies of Jiggery Pokery, who will be doing the live drawing while music is provided by Iain Woods, aka Psychologist. Here's the flyer:

How funny, I discovered Andrew Rae just this very day and insta-recognised the top flyer from his website. This sounds like a good jam, would love to be there.
