Playing and connecting with my art work is the best feeling as an artist, and it makes me so happy when I can encourage other people to do this too.

Jack Sprattus

Jack is an eclectic artist based in Devon that is obsessed with drawing. He loves exploring the many facets of visual expression. His inspiration can come from anything in life's random and vast sensory experience but mostly other humans and the emotions that haunt us.

From the artist:

I'm really nervous...


Instagram: poldo_pencil

Leopoldo's art explores cinematic grotesqueness through the depictions of Argentine mythology and family. He is fascinated by artistic interpretations of the human condition because it translates thoughts into a figure we can see and touch.

I am beyond grateful that I was selected to battle and I can't wait to show you what I got!

Andy Knill

Instagram: AndyKnillArtStudio

From the artist:

Hi audience, I am Andy of AndyKnillArt Studio in Swanage (just me really). I am 59, a retired geography teacher who took up art in 2015 and am self taught - for the event I will be drawing in Posca acrylic markers.

My motto is ‘Art for Fun’ and I will come wearing one of my hand drawn outfits and pith helmets.

Please cheer me on, feedback welcomed and if you would like to draw with me at another point I offer a free drawing activity using my ProMarker collection at my studio (ask for details).

I have never done an event like this so looking forward to the challenge.
