Your favourite online comics social is back! Our fortnightly online Gosh! Comics and Broken Frontier Drink and Draw returns this Thursday, May 20th for a Creating Women Special with guest artist Amy Galloway/Hesitantdoodle. 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.

We’ll be starting this week at 7.15pm to give everyone taking part on Twitter the opportunity to introduce themselves to each other as we look to continue fostering an even stronger sense of community. Drawing rounds begin at 7.30pm UK time as usual.
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 (UK time), 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!
Our guest artist this week is Amy Galloway/Hesitantdoodle, the creator of the Creating Women comics video interview series which debuts on May 28th. We ran a major interview piece with Amy and co-producer Rachel A. Davis here last week at BF and you can see the series on its YouTube channel here. Check out the series trailer below.
Amy’s work as a cartoonist can also be seen on their site here, including their wrestling comics series GUTS below. Amy has provided us with three ace drawing themes that you’re going to have a lot of fun with!
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?
