V&A illustrates a point with drawing campaign

Always thought you should be drawing that Manga comic book or some withering political caricature, rather than another boring old corporate identity?

Well, now London’s Victoria & Albert Museum is giving you the chance to sketch your funky stuff. This Saturday (5 October), the museum is launching The Big Draw – ‘500 events across the UK designed to get the nation drawing’ – with a day of doodling led by celeb scrawlers including Quentin Blake, Steve Bell, Gerald Scarfe, Peter Blake and Posy Simmonds.

Draw the World encourages visitors to collect a free suitcase of drawing materials and move around the V&A galleries creating pictures inspired by what they see. Also promised are calligraphy classes from the graphics experts behind Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and a giant pictorial consequences game.

Oooh, we feel all Janet Ellis.
