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.
