Real Sketchy
The Green Room @ The Black Box

When Late Night Art just isn’t late enough, Real Sketchy is here for you. (I mean 9pm isn’t really that late is it but ‘Early Night, Tucked Up in Bed with an Ovaltine by Nine Art’ doesn’t really scan does it)

InkMonkey Art Supplies provide the pens and paper, Black Box serve up the booze & pizza and we scan the hell out of everything while playing you the finest tunage.

You’d be surprised the amount of fun you can have with a pencil, a scanner and a premium Spotify account.

Oh and it’s free in like!
