Yes! Something new and exciting is going on! Together with fellow illustrator Naomi King I’ve been busy setting up a new creative event in Rotterdam: Talk & Draw 010.
Talk & Draw is a monthly creative event in the heart of Rotterdam, hosted by Digital Playground. Every third Thursday of the month, upcoming and established visual artists come together to share their passion for drawing, work on new or continuing projects, find peer-to-peer feedback and of course drink a beer or two together.
Every month we ask a someone from our community to be a guest presenter who will show and tell some of his work and share his insights and process with you.
The kick off edition is the 16th of March!
> And our guest presenter this month is…
Theresa Hartgers! She is an illustrator in Rotterdam, aka T.H. te R. She draws her life, everything around her. She makes infographics, debate-o-graphics and illustrations for magazines, as KEKmama and Gers!magazine. Every week, she posts her Tales of Motherhood on social media. Sharp cartoons about a mother’s life. Her book, titled “Heb je alles gehad..” is a compilation of her illustrations.
During the event you can work on your ongoing drawing projects or get inspired by the presentation and try out something different! A great opportunity to get away from your desk and/or computer and get your hands dirty on paper!
So bring your sketchbook and drawing utensils as you like, make sure to tell other serial drawing enthusiasts about it and get ready for some fun and inspiration!
> Who is Talk & Draw for?
For the international Rotterdam based community of illustrators, graphic designers, visual designers, drawing artists, serial doodlers and drawing enthusiasts! Anyone sharing the enthusiasm for drawing and meeting other creative people is welcome.
> What do I need to bring?
Your own drawing materials.
> Why should I go to Talk & Draw?
Meet other creative people, inspire and learn from each other in a great space while enjoying a beer or two and listening to some nice tunes playing in the background.
Talk & Draw is a great opportunity to get away from your desk and computer and get your hands dirty on paper!

> What does it cost to go Talk & Draw?
Nada! We offer all this fun and excitement to you for free. Because it’s your presence and creative energy that makes the difference, not how much cash you got in your pocket.

Would you like to share your work and experience at Talk & Draw? We’d love to have you as a guest presenter! We’re always looking for visual artists that can share some of their work with us. An insight, a technique, something about making your business out of drawing, failure or success, it can all be of great value to drawing-enthusiasts. So get in touch!
> How can I attend a Talk & Draw?
Since we have a capacity limit of 40 people, we ask you to RSVP on our Meet-Up event page so we can keep track of the number of people coming.
