Get your pencils at the ready and join us to sketch up a storm at Sketchbook Social!

This special event for London Book and Screen Week is a night out with a twist: a fun, fast-paced interactive evening of drawing and doodling.

Our host for the evening is Waterstones Children’s Laureate and Observer political cartoonist Chris Riddell, aka The Masked Doodler. Joining him are illustrators Vanna Vinci from Italy; award-winning illustrator and founder of the #PicturesMeanBusiness campaign Sarah McIntyre; Mike Medaglia who draws comics about zen and modern life for The Huffington Post; and Martial Toledano from Spain.

Also appearing will be illustrators Rachael Ball, Neill Cameron, Richard Collingridge, Wallis Eates, Tom Morgan-Jones, William Grill and Gary Northfield – as well as a few surprise guests on the night.

Sketchbook Social is open to everyone, whether you’re a seasoned scribbler or a complete beginner. Join us to enjoy a drink, a doodle and the chance to meet and chat with our illustrator guests.
