An event for digital animals since 2009

From the twitters:

From Dorset With Love (from one digital animal to another)!

Thanks to the Meetdraw8 ‘Digital Animals’ print sale before Christmas, you lovely meetdraw-ers raised £355 for animal welfare charity Compassion in World Farming, PLUS £200 for their Dorset supporter group Compassionate Dorset (that’s us!). That’s a whopping total of £555 from one night! It really was a fantastic amount and Compassion in World Farming were really pleased to hear…

Hands washed, benches scrubbed, screens blasted clean, and finally, here are all our finished screen prints. The brief we gave our artists was ‘digital animals’. They each chose a three letter file extension, or digital acronym, and then set about illustrating it using three animals, and just black, white and one colour. Colour separations we’re sent through, and with the…

Prints charming

Before I wash the ink off my hands, arms, face and clothes, and out of my hair and ears, I thought I’d grab a quick beer and ten minutes to jot down a few words. It’s been an amazing few days, hanging out in the print studios at AUCB, being expertly guided through the screen printing process, and getting…

Meet, draw, print

With only 5 days to go until Meetdraw8 we’re frantically running round getting everything ready to ensure it’s the best Meetdraw ever, and today was no exception.

Thanks to our friends at AUCB a bunch of Meetheads, lead by David ‘The Butcher’ Burton, spent the day producing a series of limited edition screen prints for Meetdraw8. The prints look amazing…

Get ready for Meetdraw 8

It seems amazing that this will be our 8th Meetdraw. This year’s Christmas MeetBall, on December 16th, will mark two years of Meetdrawing. Time seems to have flown by since Meetdraw 1 (hands up who remembers that evening in iBar?) We’ve come such a long way since then, and we’re delighted to be at the centre of a more open…

Last week I met Sophia Taglialavore at the Design Buddy event at AUCB and we  got talking about Meetdraw and how we’d gone about starting it and, more importantly, how it established itself as a regular event. It turned out Sophia is part of a group of students from Bournemouth who have taken it upon themselves to organise a new…

Thanks to Adam Wintle for adding more photos to our Flickr group. Adam’s been a regular Meethead since the beginning and last night we sadly said good bye to him as he heads off to Spain for a year. Hopefully it won’t be the last we’ll see of him and we expect a Spanish version of Meetdraw (or ‘carne…

Arguably the most successful Meetdraw we’ve had to date last nights event saw over 160 digital animals meet up to share the love, in fact so many turned up that at one point we almost had to shut the venue, but that’s another story altogether. A proper write-up will follow shortly but I thought I’d share some of the photos…

What are the students playing at?

Meetdraw is a great way to interact with people in our industry in a friendly environment. Usually there’s something cool also going on in the background and this time is no different; this Meetdraw will allow attendees to play flash games on screen, using their own phones as controllers. We are using an application called ‘Megaphone’. This allows players to…
