Sketchcrawl...


Well, it's taken a while, and you'll have to excuse the lame colours, but here are my doodles from sketchcrawl.

The event, for those of you who aren't familiar, is a day long drawing excursion of people going out sketching, and sort of roaming around. This was the 11th official crawl, and it happens all across the globe. Here's a link to the San Francisco chapter of the Sketchrawl forum.

We took a boat from the Ferry building on the Embarcadero up to Sausalito:


On the ferry, I ran into Amelia from the GeckoCafe blog, which was very exciting, and of course Ronnie and Enrico and a bunch of the other Pixarians who were out drawing that day.


And here we are. It was a very hot day, and I hadn't had anything to eat in the morning, so I bought a chevre and sundried tomato sandwich. It turned out to be small and open faced, took forever to make, and came with a pile of shredded carrots.



I was hanging out with Alex Woo and all of his friends, but not much drawing happened for me. There were mostly boats and boats and boats, and not many people around, although it was pretty mesmerizing to watch the fog roll over the hills--I can't imagine ever getting sick of that.

and here we are at our final destination of the day--everybody chillin' around a gazebo, drawing each other drawing the boats and the hills and the water. A couple of dogs were swimming, which was pretty fun, and at the end of the day, I finally met a one Ric Carrasquillo, who doesn't really look as scuzzy as his avatar might suggest, and who, it turns out, is a pretty cool fella.

And that was sketchcrawl!

*by the by, the fellow standing looked fun, although I can't draw him.
