Sumi Ink Club is a Los Angeles-based drawing collective founded in 2005 by Sarah Anderson and Luke Fischbeck. The group meets regularly to execute topsy-turvy, detailed, collaborative drawings using ink on paper. In each of its permutations, Sumi Ink Club uses group drawing as a means to open and fortify social interactions that bleed into everyday life. Sumi Ink Club is non-hierarchical: all ages, all humans, all styles.
Other collaborations featuring Sarah Anderson and Luke Fischbeck include the band, Lucky Dragons, and the small publishing house, Glaciers of Nice who will create a publication out of the drawings that result from the simultaneous drawing events.
