Draw Night Gallery Debuts Tomorrow at NoBrow Coffee!
Derek Hunter used to be a regular on the Geek Show Podcast, and has been a great guy to know. He's also one of those illustrators who's work looks so crisp and effortless that Leigh just weeps in futile envy. His Pirate Club comics have been a staple in our house since we met him, and he's a born story teller. And he loves him some Draw Night.
Derek has been raving about "Draw Night" for years, and we can see why. Draw Night is a group of artists that get together once a week and, well, draw. A lot. They have been gathering at NoBrow coffee in downtown Salt Lake City lately, and they have a three week long show there starting tomorrow, which just happens to coincide with the Downtown Gallery Stroll.
Gallery Stroll hasn't been too friendly to NoBrow, since it is about half a block farther down 300 south than organizers think anyone would care to walk. That's a bunch of crap, and we think the Draw Night showing will prove them wrong.
Here's what you can expect from the show, which starts tomorrow night at 6:00 and goes through 10:00. ( And we totally cribbed this from the Draw Night page on Facebook )
"Draw Night" is a weekly gathering of artists from Bountiful to Orem who break free from the solitude of their studios and join forces in the name of the pencil, profanity and sushi...
And now, the Draw Night crew is set to invade this month's gallery stroll to bring you a look inside our weekly musings. So, come check out sketches, illustrations, comic books and prints from some of Salt Lake City's best video game and comic art...ists!
Artists showing at this event:
And be sure to swing by nobrow the following day to witness the madness that is 24 hour comic book day! Where each artist will attempt to draw a 24 page comic in 24 hours!"
This is going to be a pretty epic gathering, and a great chance to purchase some prints, comics and art from the Draw Night crew. NoBrow is also hosting the Next Gen Kids Craft Show on Saturday night, which will be another great chance to see the Draw Night Gallery, as well as checking out hand-made crafts from the future of the Salt Lake City art scene!
