The Overhead Sketch Battles take place in a series of live knock-out rounds, 2 artists compete head to head using only black pens and old school overhead projectors.
Each Thursday there are 2 battles, a battle is 1 hour long and consists of 2 artists battling against each other. Each artist has an overhead projector and a selection of pens to create their piece with. The artists will be drawing on transparency sheets and the entire process will be projected onto the wall for everyone to watch.
At the end of the battle the crowd will be asked to vote, by means of anonymous ballot, for whichever piece they think is the best. The artist with the most votes progresses to the next round.
The artwork created during the battles will be reproduced as a series of limited edition poster prints that will be exhibited at Grayscale Gallery in June.
The featured artists are: Mr. Alpha, Breeze, Rekzo, Myza420, Ben, AE, Kevin Love, Rowan Toselli
