@ the 33

33 Revolution was a great place. Here are the two sketches I did while I was there. The third image is the page I was drawing the foreground characters for. The parents still need some work, but I'm getting there...

33 Revolutions in El Cerrito

Just a note to all the sketchers out there. I'll be @ 33 Revolutions on Central Ave. and San Pablo Ave. in El Cerrito tonight and tomorrow. I got to get some comic strips done so I'll be chillin' with my headphones on and my supplies out. If you want to come down all the directions and goodies are on their site: http://www.33revolutions.com . I'll be there most of the day tomorrow, too and will post my sketches and page progress on the site when I get home.

Meeting Sunday!

Where too?

I'm finishing some freelance work, so I can't do all day, but would love to take a break and do some drawing! Lets hear some thoughts on time and location. So far I've heard the Wharf. Hit the comments button below to comment.

The Grove

Hey guys, I'm headed to The Grove in an hour or so to do some artwork. It's a coffee shop in the Marina off Chestnut and Avila, between Scott and Pierce. It's got the coolest atmosphere! I'll take pictures and post them below. If anyone is in the area, stop by. I should be there through 2pm.

Update! Here are the photos and sketches, plus one I colored quickly in PS:

Sparky's Diner Sketches

I had a lot of fun at Sparky's last night meeting all the folks and getting my draw on. Haven't been that inspired in a wulie and it was great to be in that atmosphere among fellow struggling (!) artists just trying to do our thing.

These are the sketches I got from the group plus one from when I was hanging out before the session since I got there REALLY early. Next time I'll be fashionably late like the rest of y'all. ;)

Sparky's Diner

It was great to meet all of you! Thanks again to everyone that could make it, and to all of those that will be there next time, PICK A PLACE!!! Anywhere that there is to draw, hit me up. I suggest "The Grove." It is a spot over in the Marina that has the coolest atmosphere; very inspirational. I'm open to any ideas.

I witnessed some great artwork and enjoyed tossing my sketchbook around. I can't wait to see those drawings I missed and look forward to being reminded of the ones I remember. Please post up our work as soon as you get a chance. So there is no lag, try to go with 72 dpi at around 750 tall. Here are some drunken sketches that made it to my sketchbook at Sparky's:

Next Meet: Tuesday @ Sparky's Diner

Bring all your art friends! With a $1.50 Happy Hour, Sparky's at 242 Church Street should be a great place for all of us to meet up. There we can have a beer while getting to know each other and sketching the random characters we come across.

Happy hour is 5-9pm this Tuesday. I'll get there 7ish, though several people will be there earlier.

Lastly, obviously the blog is up! I tossed up the sketches I've received so far. We should have some photos up soon as well. Feel free to toss me ideas as to the look, etc.


First Meet at the SF Zoo

Though it rained off and on most of the day, we got some nice sketches out of the experience. Here are some of the ones I've received so far:
