Drawing Tokyo

screen-shot-2016-11-20-at-23-27-16

I’ve posted a bunch of times about my friends Luis Mendo and Adrian Hogan, and all of their drawing activities in Tokyo — which of course includes their monthly PauseDraw series. Airbnb has just launched a new activity service as part of everything the company offers, and Luis & Adrian were quick to offer up a Tokyo drawing tour. It includes 3 sessions done over 3 days (morning, afternoon, evening), and you can bet you’ll be spending some time drawing and sketching in some primo Tokyo spots. Definitely something to consider if you’re planning a visit to Tokyo, and would like to do something a bit different from the regular sightseeing and shopping.

The next edition of PauseDraw — PauseTalk‘s sister series all about drawing — is just around the corner, taking place on Sunday, October 16, at 16:00, at Shibaura House, the same place as last time (pictured in this post). As always, it’s hosted by Tokyo’s two favorite drawers, Luis Mendo and Adrian Hogan.

PauseDraw

portfolio_type_pausedraw

Even though I’m no longer in Tokyo running my PauseTalk events, it warms my heart to see that its offshoot, PauseDraw, is still going strong. Unlike PauseTalk where talking’s the thing, the sister series is all about getting a group of people together to draw, draw, and then draw some more. Originally started by Luis Mendo (with a first edition in Amsterdam), he was then joined by Adrian Hogan once the series moved to Tokyo (along with Luis), and they’ve been going non-stop ever since. You can stay updated on upcoming PauseDraw events through its Facebook page and Twitter account — the next one takes place Sunday, September 11, 2016¬†(each edition usually takes place on the first Sunday of the month).
