Your favourite online comics social is back! Our fortnightly online Gosh! Comics and Broken Frontier Drink and Draw returns this Thursday, November 18th featuring guest artist KitsuneArt. 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!
Let’s meet our guest artist…
KitsuneArt is an illustrator whose self-published comics and zines have included Koi No Yokan, Red Ink and Midnight Heart. She describes her practice as “creating images and stories made of love, romance, gothic, magic, mystery, tragedy, punk and everything connected.”
Recently at Broken Frontier we looked at her latest comic Midnight Heart, a supernatural story set in both ancient Egypt and 19th century London saying of it “Part murder mystery, part queer love story, Midnight Heart is a succinct and well constructed short story that takes the vengeful mummy standard of horror films and pushes it into alternative and unexpected directions.”
