Pre-Christmas madness at the mall

I was a bit late today and I only stayed for an hour but it was good times. lots of people around and I sat next to some folks that were trying to relax while their families or friends or whoever they were there with shopped. Eventually one of them left and I was joined by some random kid who said that he sketches in the mall everyday, so that was cool. The best part though was that some carolers stopped in my general area and I finally got to draw people who weren't moving all over the place :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope everybody had a good Holiday. Mine was great, thank you. For those of you who are hard core and are still planning on hitting up the sketch group tomorrow we are going to meet in front of the GAP in the Pioneer Square Mall. It has been mighty cold lately, not to mention the possibility of rain and I am trying to get over a cold.

The mall should be bussling with people tomorrow. good sketching is a given! See you there! 11:00 am!

Another rainy Sat-er-day

So I sat-on-my-ass at the mall and drawed stuff :) The funniest part about today was that the security guard spotted me and moved as soon as he saw that I was drawing him. Then he came down the escalator and walked right behind me, probably looking to see if I really was drawing him. After that he kind of gave me dirty looks any time I saw him again. Ha ha, good times

Sketch Group Nov 17th

Looks like the rain is not going to end any time soon. So the group will be meeting at standby, at the benches in front of the GAP store in the Pinoneer Mall.

In the works is a notification mass email to be sent to all members every Friday informing them of meeting places, etc.

Regretably I will not be sketching tomorrow as I have to work. Got to pay them bills! Gary has given my word tonight that he will keep the sketch club torch aloft.

Go BIC pens

Once again the weather turned out nice for the sketch group. The group consisted of myself and one Alex Jetter who is a fellow school chum at the Art Institute.

Since I favorite sketching pen broke I used a standard black BIC medium point ball pen. I've always considered these cheap BIC's to be the funnest to sketch with.

We sketched at the square for about an hour before hopping on the max and sketching the riders up the Lloyd center and back. After sketching people moving around at the square it is really nice to sketch people riding on the max where they are not able to move, and they are closer to you.

A few moments ago I walked into the open drawing class only to find it empty. My guess is that the model didn't show and the session was canceled.

For those of you who were unable to scratch their itch to draw tonight then I am sure that tomorrow's sketch group meet will be just the thing.

If the weather is nice we will meet at the square. If it is bad we will meed at the benches in front of the GAP inside the mall.

See you there!

Good times, Gabe gave me a call at 11 letting me know he'd be a little late, good thing because i was still in bed :P :)
It started out pretty quiet at the Square but then a large group of protesters showed up, Turkish or Kurdish.. something about Peace yes War No. Unfortunately the chants sounded like "Peace yes Porno!) or "Peace not Sparta" *shrug* Good time though, did some more MAX sketching to finish off the day as well. Good times.

*edit* hm i'll try to up the image size for future posts.
