recap of Draw By Night #42: DOMINIONS

On November 5th, VFS hosted Draw By Night #42:  DOMINIONS. The theme for this free event inspired a cuteness overload of drawings: It was Minion Madness! Along with guests from the general public, we saw students from Digital Design, Programming, and Makeup take part. As per custom, snacks and art supplies were provided. It was fun to see all the different interpretations of the Minion characters. See you at the next Draw By Night!

recap of Draw By Night #41

On July 22nd, VFS hosted Draw By Night #41: Simulator Sickness. The event marked the return of Myron Campbell, DBN founder, for one evening, and featured live drawing by artist Mike Pelletier via his studio in Amsterdam. The theme for the drawing party was intended to inspire free and uninhibited drawings which included fun images that were so ugly that it made one dizzy, nauseous and queasy! As with most DBN themes, the results were surprising and actually beautiful! See you at the next Draw By Night!

The theme was based on Giulio Camillo and his notion of a “Theatre of Memory.” Throughout the evening the 80+ participants wrote and drew responding to the notion of Memory Theatre while watching Banjorstring (Cian Donnelly’s alter ego) dance and sing in front of us. The following is the recorded live feed direct from Donnelly’s studio in Rome, Italy.
