The Big Draw

On Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd October I’m taking part in the 

 at Dundee Contemporary Arts Centre (DCA). The Big Draw is a fantastic nationwide event aimed at getting everyone to pick up a pencil (or pen!) and draw!

We’re inviting you to post or email in your doodles, drawings and masterpieces which I’ll then be piecing together to form one huge sprawling artwork. You can send whatever takes your fancy, all we ask is that it is black and white (pen on paper is fine) and that it’s not rude – this is a family event remember! On Saturday 2nd I’ll be joining-up all the various sections people have sent in and with the help of those who come along on the day, adding colour to the composition and our own little doodles and details, more info here.

The outcome will be an amazingly ecclective patchwork of drawings and doodles, all swatched together to create a single eye-popping panel!

So we need your doodles! Be it a photocopy of a 5 hour masterpiece or a post-it sized love heart, send us your scribbles!

Either Snail Mail your doodles to the DCA at the address below or email me them (use mailbigfile.com if they are biggies!)
