Featuring a special pop-up appearance of Facebook’s Analog Research Laboratory
Explore the diversity of mark making implements, varieties of papers, and bring out your inner illustrator. Artist Kevin VQ Dam has created a large illustration that requires your help inking in!

Follow the texture guides provided, and use illustration markers to finish the piece as a community. Take a small illustration board into the gallery to sketch pieces that inspire you and return to add ink. There will also be step-by-step guides available to help those who want to learn new skills, and lots of open-ended materials for inspired guests to explore.
