The Grove on Fillmore

Thank you to everyone that came out for Coffee to the People. I had so much fun with all of the random characters!

So the next meeting will be Sunday February 7th, at The Grove on 2016 Fillmore Street, off Pine. As usual, I will be there at the latest 2pm, but would like to show up around noon. For more info/map go to The Grove on Yelp.

Of course everyone is welcome, so feel free to bring friends, drawing materials, well as your appetite! This place has great coffee drinks, as well amazing food. But nothing tops the ambiance. This Grove is one of two in the city and a great place to have a latte and sketch. Of course if it gets to crowded, there is plenty of other places to sketch in the area, so we can always branch out.

Here are some of my sketch pages and picks from last Sunday:

Coffee to the People

Hello everyone, it has been too long!!! Thanks to those that have been sending me emails regarding getting the group back together. I miss sketching with all of you as well and I can't take much more of this rain!

Last night was Sketch Tuesday at 111 Minna Gallery. It was so much fun. The whole time, all I could think about was how I need to do this more often. Well, now I'm going too! The plan is twice a month, but lets see what kind of response we get from this first meeting.

In an effort to allow people time to work around their schedule, I'm setting up a Sketch Day for Sunday the 24th at Coffee to the People, not to be confused with Peoples Cafe. To those of you that have never been here before, it is on 1206 Masonic, off Haight Street. This place has always been one of my favorite coffee shops in the city. There are random seats of all kinds, not one matches the other. There are tons of random books and boardgames crowding the shelves on the walls. Of course there is coffee, pastries, and it is in Upper Haight, so there will be no shortage of people to draw.

Here is a link with all the info you will need:

Coffee to the People

I plan to get there around noon, but lets say 2pm to give everyone time to make the trip. As always, I will have my phone on me, so feel free to shoot me an email if you need my number. If anyone will be driving and is willing to pick people up from the bart, please shoot me an email and I'll organize that. The same goes for those that need a ride.

Well, I hope to see everyone there. Feel free to bring anyone else you know that is interested or simply show up yourself. I'm looking forward to seeing some progress since last time! Personally, I think I'm getting worse ;)

Also, Feb 27th is the next Sketch Crawl, so mark your calenders:
