Get ready for PauseDraw at Loftwork Vol.2 on June 8th!

SKETCHING x NETWORKING event where you can draw while enjoying a picnic lunch!

*Entry closed (6/5)

The last time we held PauseDraw at Loftwork there was a huge turnout of around 40 people and everyone had a brilliant time (you can see the event report here!). We also received really positive feedback from the event, so we decided it’s about time we did it again!

The next PauseDraw will be held in Shibuya’s Yoyogi Park. It will be an opportunity to explore the park with your sketchpad and pencils in hand and draw to your hearts content! Once we return from exploring, we will showcase our sketches to all participants. Feel free to bring along your own drinks and light refreshments. What could be better than sketching in the great outdoors while enjoying a picnic lunch?

Everyone is welcome to join—even if you haven’t drawn anything in a while, if you are not good at drawing or really good! The event is open to everyone and is an opportunity for all to enjoy sketching with both creators and those who just want to get their creative juices flowing.


What is Pause Draw?AdrianLuis

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.


We’d love to see you all there, especially if you:

-like drawing.
-are Illustrators, designers
-would like to meet other creators and creatives
-would like to connect with creators from other countries in other languages
