Dr Doodley's Drink & Draw Window Box Display

Every second Tuesday, between 7 and 9pm, creative types in Cambridge meet at Hot Numbers Cafe to make, draw, paint, but most importantly, have fun! At each event a different artist volunteers to host the event, and come up with a short project for everyone to get involved in.

When Dan Biggs hosted the event a few weeks ago, he gave us the task of decorating the inside of a shoebox however we wanted. We started filling the boxes during the two hours at the cafe, then took them home to complete. Everyone who wanted their shoebox to be a part of the installation to follow dropped their completed box off at the next Drink & Draw event.

With all the boxes, Dan constructed an installation which is now displayed in the window of Elitian Printers on Mill Road for a little goody for passers-by to have a look at. I think each box provides a little insight in to the mind of the artist who created it!

The box I created shows a little mash-up of a few different projects I have made in the past. It includes drawing, etchings, with the use of chine-colle, and paper sculptures. So if you're out and about on Mill Road keep your eyes peeled and you'll be in for a treat!
