SketchCrawl 14: a fundraiser!

You could call it a mini World Wide SketchCrawl, this “12th and a half draw in your home Crawl”, and it’s happening this coming weekend! No excuse with the cold weather this time! Stay cozy, make yourself some tea and draw away for however long you can!

You really have to come by the forums and take a look at all the drawings from around the world!

Ronnie and I met crawlers at the San Francisco Zoo. First time I visit it. The feeding of the Lions had to be the highpoint of the day, still staying with me. We were all standing 3 feet from two lions,...
