Your favourite online comics social is back! Our fortnightly Gosh! Comics and Broken Frontier Drink and Draw returns this Thursday, May 4th with guest artist Tal Brosh, of our 2020 ‘Six to Watch’ line-up. 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…
Tal Brosh is one of our 2020 Broken Frontier ‘Six Small Press Creators to Watch‘. Tal’s previous comics work includes her collaboration with Chino Moya on the surreal and dream-like Flat Filters of which we said at BF “whether you consider it a sequential metaphor (as I did on careful consideration) or a The Twilight Zone-style piece of graphic design there’s no doubting the incredible potential on show here from both creators.”
Tal has just launched a new comic, Trigger Shot, to tie in with Infertility Awareness Week. It’s a pure “language of comics” tour-de-force that fits in the graphic medicine category of comics. Look for a review at BF this week.
