The first Glug London creative meetup of 2010 takes place next Wednesday in Shoreditch, featuring a talk from hit illustrator Noma Bar and live illustration and other goings-on from illustration collective This is Toy.

Glug London labels itself as 'notworking, not networking' and aims to give creative types a chance to mingle over drinks, snacks, ping pong and creative distractions. The event takes place at Book Club, and will feature live drawing from This is Toy illustrators Chris Martin, Deanna Halsall and David Sparshott.

Meanwhile, other collective members including Jean Jullien, Jiro Bevis, Chris Gray, and Rob Bailey will be making limited-edition T-shirts live.

A special guest speaker, yet to be announced, will give a talk, as will Noma Bar.
