We have more digital drinking and drawing fun this Thursday September 17th as our fortnightly online Gosh! Comics and Broken Frontier Drink and Draw retums! As usual we’re back again at 7.30pm BST 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!
Let’s meet our guest artists!
Rebecca K. Jones is a familiar name to regular Broken Frontier readers! You can read an extensive interview with her here on the site. Rebecca has self-published comics like Cat Disco and contributed to a number of notable anthologies including Tiny Pencil, Dirty Rotten Comics and SelfMadeHero’s The Corbyn Comic Book.
A couple of years back her graphic-novel-in-progress Boomerang – a semi-autobiographical story about youth unemployment in the early 2000s – was shortlisted for the Laydeez do Comics Prize. You can read a review of an early chapter here at BF.
Lara Callaghan is a D&D regular whose first forays into comic-making have been covered here at Broken Frontier over the last year or two. Part of the WIP Comics group Lara’s work has featured in their anthologies Work and Progress. Her first self-published comic Reapers, exploring what house plants get up to when their owners are not around, was reviewed here last year at BF. We spoke then of its “promise and the comic invention”. You can see two sample pages below.
We’ll see you all again on Thursday! 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?
