Get ready for PauseDraw × SKETCH NOTE Tokyo & Kyoto!


How’s that person beside me drawing? Let’s get together and draw!

【NEWS】 The event will be also held in Kyoto on 29th
To commemorate the release of the only SKETCH NOTE in the world that can produce notes, we will be getting together for the sketching event PauseDraw × SKETCH NOTE on Sunday May 22nd (Tokyo) and Sunday May 29th (Kyoto).

PauseDraw is a networking and drawing event presented by illustrators Luis Mendo and Adrian Hogan. Come together→go out into the streets→make drawings→show drawings to each other. Doing this, participants can make new friends and enjoy discoveries.
(Reports on past PauseDraw events Vol.1 Vol.2)

People who are always drawing, people who have not drawn for a while, people who are good at drawing, people who are bad at it—we welcome everyone! This is an event where participants can enjoy the pleasure of the drawing process itself, more so than their actual output. Why not have great fun sketching together with friends who are interested in creativity?



AdrianLuis-250What is PauseDraw?

Pause Draw is a networking/drawing event held on occasion by Luis Mendo and Adrian Hogan By pausing among the things we pass by every day and taking up our pens, people can experience not only the enjoyment of drawing, but also the importance of stopping to take a deep breath, and the wonder of looking at things from a different angle.
