Lazy Oaf, a store in London’s Soho with a penchant for all things jolly, illustrated and graphic, is starting a new regular in-store Drawing Club to encourage people to get doodling (the events are being sponsored by pen manufacturer Posca) and, but of course, to encourage people to peruse the wares of the shop. Attendees of the events will be offered a 20% discount off everything (including items from the new Lazy Oaf collection) and the best submissions will be showcased on the Lazy Oaf website and on the walls of the shop itself.

The first installment of The Lazy Oaf Drawing Club is taking place tonight and will also serve as the launch of the brand’s new Spring/Summer 09 collection. On the walls of the event space, Lazy Oaf have stuck up hundreds of sheets of paper printed with frames on – for people to get doodling on AND there will be work displayed by the likes of Tado, Kate Moross, Gemma Correll, Gaston Caba, Kate Sutton, Jon Burgerman, Andrew Rae, Jean Jullien and Bob London. Illustrators Ian Stevenson and John Slade will be doodling live on some big boards and the exhibition space will remain open through Sunday 26 April.

If you can’t make the event tonight, but want to get involved in some drawing, feel free to download some of the specially created Lazy Oaf frames by clicking on them below. Print and draw then send or take your efforts in to the store.

Lazy Oaf’s Drawing Club is set to take place tonight (Thursday April 23) at the Lazy Oaf Shop, Kingly Court, Carnaby Street, London, W1B 5PW Tel: +44 (0) 207 287 2060

(Not Just) Another Student Auction

This crate, customised by Research Studios is one of a number of pieces to be auctioned in aid of Ravensbourne students’ degree show
This, it seems, is the year of the student auction. Back in March we reported on UCA’s Beg, Steal or Borrow event. Lincoln students were quick to jump in and claim the idea for themselves as they were about to host their second Design Auction, which we also covered last year. Now Ravensbourne is joining in the fun with Blank Canvas
