Last Friday we held our first Sketch Cinema event! Sketch Cinema is a new monthly series of casual movie-and-draw nights. We were very glad to see new and familiar faces alike, and we hope everyone enjoyed our taste in fine films.
During the hard-edged cyberpunk cult classic Johnny Mnemonic, we held a themed drawing challenge called "Help Keanu" in which the participants drew items and ideas that would, as the title suggests, help Keanu's character in the film. Results included a Steve Jobs robot, the classic Matrix character Morpheus being transported into this film to help Johnny just as he helped Neo, and a collection of ideas by artist Iris Monahan that included a Keanu-centric reinvented childhood. Their ideas ultimately won them the prize, including a VHS copy of Mnemonic and the William Gibson classic Neuromancer.
Hope to see you there!
