Seeing the year out with a bang, our fortnightly online Gosh! Comics and Broken Frontier Drink and Draw returns this Wednesday December 23rd with a festive special! (Note the one-off change from our usual Thursday night as we work around Christmas!). As usual we start at 7.30pm UK time on Twitter. Not only do our online D&Ds keep all those who would meet at The King’s Arms in Soho, London every month (in those fondly remembered pre-March 2020 days) in regular contact, they also allow us to expand our reach for the event to a more global audience.

So, once again if you’re joining us online, here are the “rules”…
We’re using our regular pub format, adapted for a digital platform. So if you’ve never attended one of our monthly sessions this is how it will work. Our guest artists will each choose a drawing theme for three sessions across the evening. We’ll post each of these prompts with the hashtag #GoshBFDD in three batches at 7.30pm (GMT), 8.15pm and 9.00pm from both the Gosh! Comics Twitter account and the Broken Frontier Twitter account. You have 30 minutes to draw something fitting that theme, after which we’ll spend 15 minutes picking a winner before the next round begins. Don’t forget to post your drawings with the #GoshBFDD hashtag so everyone can see and join in. And also so we can easily retweet!
This time we’re going to do something a little different. We’ll be celebrating the year by asking you to join in and nominate your top graphic novels and comics published in 2020. Drawing themes will be based around some favourite books as selected by Drink and Draw poster designer Joe Stone, long-time former Drink and Draw co-host Nora Goldberg and BF’s own Editor-in-Chief Andy Oliver.
We’ll see you all again on Wednesday! Whether you’re a regular or a newbie all are welcome so please do join in and be part of our international Drink and Draw fun! And if you enjoy this event why not check out the Gosh! Comics webstore here?
