Twice just seems too few. More than two, less than six. Maybe quarterly? That's only once every three months.

He's not a fisherman, just an old guy on the bus. Apparently he's also a vegan and has cirrhosis.

Man! I totally missed out on Post Alley! I really wish I'd spent more time around Pike St.

I wasted too much time around shopping centers. They're by far the worst place to draw I've ever been to. Everything bores me and I don't want to draw, I just want to buy the occasional book. I prefer farmers markets, or just neighborhoods in general, although I also tend to Sketchcrawl without stop...

I prefer number 1 pencils, I'm not sure about the HB number, but the leads a bit softer than a #2. My favorite pencil ever was a Sparco number 1, but I've since lost it, I don't think it was a fancy art pencil or anything, I just liked how it handled.

Yeah, my thoughts exactly. Pastels kind of just fall into the same category as crayons and pencils, and sometimes you just want a big blob of color that would take a lot longer with "one-dimensional paths of color." Honestly, I just snagged a Roseart watercolor set last minute, but it'll be good eno...

That's good... Honestly, I have no idea where any of those places are. LoL. I've been going to school in Tacoma for the past year and a half and I've been to Seattle maybe three times. I think I'll just take a bus somewhere and play it by ear. Judging by todays weather, I don't really think it'll ra...

For the most part I just used pen on my previous attempt, but I found this neat trail that went under a bridge, and I was trying to sketch it, but drawing trees and bushes drives me crazy, because I either want to draw each individual leaf which is simply unrealistic, or I just want to outline the g...

Yeah, I haven't been many times, not having a car, but I'm looking forward to it. I'm just trying to decide what I'm going to do if it decides to rain. :shock:

Sketchcrawl Seattle

I'm pretty sure I'm going to try and take the bus into Seattle, wander around there for the day. Otherwise I might just meander down to downtown Tacoma.

LoL, I went on a sketchcrawl about a month ago, and a lot of local people praised me on taking the time to draw the different buildings and such. It was kind of a suprise; I half expected them to ask me to leave for whatever reason. As for drawing people, they always change positions too much for me...

gosh. I didn't realize how dark the background was. It's as hard to see as this default color is on the white box. :P
