Established in 2008, Sketchmob© meets at inspirational locations to draw in London. Avanti staff members join in regularly. These are free events – a way for people from diverse working backgrounds with an interest in drawing to get practice and socialize. Each meeting focusses on different subjects and qualities of location. See the result at http://sketchmob.co.uk/gallery/.
Trevor Flynn, the inspirational founder of Sketchmob is an authority on drawing and visual communication. As he explains:
“There’s a powerful relationship between creativity and drawing, which fills a void in the learning process for many architects and designers whose talents have been consumed by the computer. Confidence in drawing freehand lets creativity emerge – useful when you’re on the spot and need to demonstrate how a design solutioncan be varied or tailored to more closely meet clients’ requirements.”
