How Does it Work


Models will standby on the spot to be drawn by gathering illustrators. You don’t have to be a professional model, anyone are welcome to experience being drawn. Invite your friend, partner or family!


Illustrators will start drawing with various styles of their own. The illustrators will vary from beginner until professionals. If you’re lucky, you can get many professional illustrators to draw you at one time!


The process will take about 15 to 20 minutes depends on the amount of models. Sit back, relax, and watch talented illustrators draw you using different styles and drawing tools.


When the illustrations are done, we will display them together and models are free to choose which ones they like to be brought back home. Illustrators can check each other’s work too and everybody is welcome to take photos!


As a token of appreciation, the profit of the chosen illustrations will 100% go directly to the illustrators themselves. Models can bring home the illustrators as keepsakes or home decor.


Illustrators could network with all participants and potentially earn extra pocket money, while models can experience a new activity being drawn and get new illustrations for the walls at home! All by participating in GEGAMBAR!
