heavy pencil party

thursday night was the 1st birthday party of Heavy Pencil at the ICA. fun seemed to be had by all and it was great to see so many people drawing. drawing in any kind of public space/arena can pose some  problems. personally i find the experience is nerve racking and slightly alien during, but beneficial afterwards. i think its hard to not try and draw to show off, which can be the worse kind of drawing, or to fall into a default mode but avoiding both of these issues in this situation is hard but a good challenge. i like what heavy pencil are doing and its good to think about drawing as a more open activity. thanks to all involved and the great live music from django django
