- DEATH OF A SUPERHERO! Coming 28 May…Tix selling fast, so get there at super speed to Cass Art’s website to buy your tix, £10 each plus booking fee.
Here’s a sneak peek at some sketches of ideas for our Super Hero themed salon coming up soon. Sketches thanks to the super talented hulk of a man, Mr Jon Attfield. Jon will be bringing his in depth knowledge and passion for all things comic art and graphic novel related to the event. He’s our Super Hero Consultant! We can’t wait to see you all there for some comic strip, dynamic, graphic art work to be created…
Wearing your underpants over your trousers and DIY home made masks and capes shall be encouraged, but not enforced…
We’re enjoying prepping the narratives and costumes, including a trip to NYC the metropolis itself, which we shall be sure to marvel at the super-sized skylines and do some comic book store research. We may even big up a few prizes for special drawing challenges.
Only one big question remains…what shall Raven Rouge’s super hero alter-ego be? And what should she wear??
Ah, look at them…with their fluffy ears all perky and attentive, and their cotton tails all waggling! Hanging on the man’s every word…
Well, don’t be deceived. No, don’t be fooled. For soon this man, he shall be RULED by the
REVENGE OF THE BUNNY GIRLS! Our Easter event, providing an alternative way to celebrate Easter in London town.
Sick and tired of years of objectification and being trapped in silly outfits and cages, a killer gang of bunny girls is let loose. They’ve got their pink eyes firmly locked on their targeted prey, ready to take down by tease, torture and delightfully inventive methods of revenge their past rivals and wrongdoing lovers.
This Easter, feast your eyes on our HOT CROSS BUNNY BOILERS and their unlucky victims @ Cass Art on Tues 2nd April.
DON’T BE AN APRIL FOOL! Hop to it, and get your paws on golden tickets before they sell out:
There’ll be sweet Easter treats on sale too…
We love love love seeing the artwork created within the salons, and also the development of these sketches (sometimes done in under 1 minute! Raven Rouge is a hard task mistress sometimes…) into art work inspired by the events. Here are some images that attendee Sam Steiger has shared with us from recent events Dead Space and Birds of Prey:
There are lots more images of both art work by lots of you and photos taken by our official snapper at recent events now up in the Gallery! Take a peek at images from Dead Space and Birds of Prey, taken by David Geewai Ho, one of our fantastic photographers.
Enjoy! And if it inspires you to come along to a future event yourself, take a look in the NEXT EVENTS section – tickets for March and April are on sale now and running out fast…Don’t say we didn’t warn you?!
We cannot wait to welcome you to theatre, slice and dice our way through our DOCTORS, DISSECTION & RESURRECTION MEN special salon at Museum of London this Thursday!
We were thrilled to bits to be invited to create a special late-night exhibition event by one of our favourite museums, and have since enjoyed researching in to the very dark, gruesome and fascinating world of 19th Century body-snatching, dissection and the art of the ‘resurrection man’. Whilst our event won’t claim to be 100% (or even 66%) historically accurate, we’ll very much be inspired by the stories and legends we’ve experienced by visits to the museum’s exhibition.
If you’ve not yet seen the exhibition, we really whole-heartedly recommend checking it out. Tickets to view the exhibition after dark with us this Thursday are very nearly all sold out, so you’d better be quick if you are in with a chance, else do go and view it at another opportunity as soon as you can! We’ll have villains and veins, anatomical models, flesh and bone for you to visually dissect and resurrect in your drawings. All materials provided in the ticket price, thanks to our sponsors Cass Art. Plus there’s a bar and we’ll have a suitable soundtrack to draw deadly doctors to…so get your hands on tickets whilst you can!
Tickets are limited and available from Museum of London only here:
Hello! Sorry for the radio silence, Art Macabrettes. We’ve been busy plotting the next salons, enjoying macabre festive antics such as Wellcome’s Death: A Self Portrait exhibition and researching into salon ideas for the coming season.
IMPORTANT NEWSFLASH: We’re having to reschedule our space voyage from tomorrow until TUESDAY 29 JAN instead now. We are sorry for this, but illness means it cant be helped. We hope you’ll join us at the new date though? Those who can’t make the new date will be refunded through Cass Art.
We can’t wait to see you at the end of the month for the first salon of the year: DEAD SPACE – helping you to fill the awkward time between Christmas/New Year and Spring with some sci-fic, intergalactic, rocket-fuelled fun.

Twit twooo…we are two!
We’ve been sounding the owl to signal sketching timings for a whole 2 years now, would you believe? How time flies when you’re having fun getting messy with charcoal, fake blood and ink. It’s been a fantastic journey so far and we hope you’ll join us for our next events seeing us into 2013.
WE’RE SOLD OUT of tickets for tomorrow’s event. So there won’t be tickets available for those who haven’t booked already in advance, I’m afraid. It’s a full haunted house for our Bday special. For those of you who have tickets for our Halloween Double Trouble event, we can’t wait to see you there. On arrival, get a macabre makeover and treat yourself to a deadly sweet treat or two!
DON’T MISS OUT on the other upcoming dates we have though, including joining us at our SALON LONDON debut, appearing as part of a fantastic triple bill of speakers and artists looking at the theme of OUT OF THE SHADOWS on THURSDAY. Get tickets via Salon London and see you there at Foyles on the DAY OF THE DEAD?
Also, we’re pleased to announce you can now buy tickets in advance for salons at Cass Art ONLINE – due to popular demand! There is a small booking fee but we hope it’ll make getting your hands on tickets a whole lot easier.
GET YOUR TICKETS FOR OUR NEXT EVENTS IN NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER NOW HERE…
It’s hard to believe that Art Macabre Drawing Salons have been going on nearly two whole years already. From our beginnings at The Victoria pub in the East End, to our move to regular home of Cass Art in Islington, we’ve grown over the last 24 months to hosting salons at least once a month with a lovely bunch of familiar friends and regular modelling talent. Whether you’re a fresh face Art Macabre virgin, or one of our original ghastly crew who’s journeyed with us so far, please do join us for a celebration in true deadly drawing, skeletal sketching style on the eve of All Hallow’s Eve and get ready to see double as we celebrate our 2nd anniversary at an extra special event!
Tuesday 30 October 2012
@Cass Art, Islington
7.30pm doors for 8pm start. Til 10pm
Drinks afterwards at Wenlock and Essex til late
As Art Macabre turns two on the eve of All Hallow’s Eve, join Raven Rouge and her ghastly crew to celebrate with a lethal double dose of skeletal sketching and gorey drawing fun.
A 2nd birthday Halloween themed special of London’s only ‘death drawing’ salons, featuring a carnival of the macabre that will revive some of our favourite nude and costumed characters from the past 2 years of events, including Jackie-O-Lantern, killer roller girls and more. Come and explore the theme of reflection, double, echoes, doppelgangers and twins at an Art Macabre Megamix from the past salons!
Part of the Big Draw 2012, expect with experimental drawing exercises, prizes and a feast of funereal themed sweet treats. Come dressed to kill, or have a macabre make-over at our “Drop Dead Gorgeous Funeral Beauty Parlour” when you arrive!
