I figured this thread would be more packed with over 80 people showing up! Maybe in the following weeks...?

Here are mine:

I'm still perusing people's sketches and/or blogs and I'll comment soon, but it's really inspiring to see what people have shared so far! :D

Splinesmith - The design markers were a good call John. I particularly like calmness of the biker sitting on the bench.

the lunacy - The more energetic your lines get, the more I like it. The second image is just wonderful Jeff.

erik76
- Your fondness for the bike really comes across in your sketch. Great pen work.

frosti - Not sure if you really need another person to tell you how wicked those birds are, but you're getting it. Now if only we'd managed to sketch the tree that was full of corks.

Emma
- Beautiful work as always. I like the variations of the terrier a lot.

Debbie Huey - That certainly was some monstrous fog assaulting the hills there, and you captured it's spirit perfectly.

Biocreep - Gah! I'm in the 3rd one down and didn't even notice when you were sketching. Each one of your sketches feels really solid and fleshed out. I dig the playful style you've got.

martha - That color work is sublime. You really captured. the refined mellowness of Sausalito.

Enrico - Those watercolor sketches are gorgeous. Yet another successful crawl!

annimator
- The fishing duo is priceless. Good to see you again.

2danimator
- Between this crawl and the last I've gotten really fond of the way you draw buildings. Nice gazebo.

Pica - Nice compositions on your purple drawings. Those chains are pretty sweet too.

Gerald - Great work all around. Thanks again for the maps.

hoffman - Each of your sketches are distinctive in entirely different ways. Nice variety.

Danny - Aww yeah, comics. That came really freaking good. So you gonna practice 24hr crunch inking next?

amelia - Nice sketches O folks. The birds are nice too.

Karen - Way to mix it up in the materials department. I especially like the elephant drawing.

Habihanna
- Wow, those are two pages of solid awesome. Each individual sketch, the way they all come together on the page, and the shadowing are all excellent.
Hooray for art blogs!

Had a great time out in Saulsalito with everybody. There are some amazing sketches here! I wish I had joined everyone for the "sketchbook swap" afterwards but I stayed until the last ferry. I got a few decent sketches, though maybe not as many as I had on some other crawls. Looking forward to Sketchcrawl 12, in the meantime, here's what I got...

I loved these old stone steps and pilgates up one of the hills.

This lady on BART really caught my attention, very odd look to her.

@ Karen: yes, it will be packed – even if there are going to be only half of ‘em – but as long as they are as good and steady as you, I am looking forward to them – yummy fish and chips you had!

karen Nice stuff! Were those musicians in Sausalito, or at the ferry building? I can't believe Imissed them. I really like your bus stop sketch.

habihanna beautiful tones! I especially like the last one, with the city skyline.

funkybat Your lines are so loose and gestural - nice! Oddly though my favourite of these is the trio sketching by the fallen log.

Ryan R - Just trying out different tools this time around.

Peter Pen - Thanks for the kind words! So far, it's about 1/4 of the 88 who's posted on the SF thread. I expect to see more in the coming weeks; not only for SF, but from others around the world!

frosti - The fellow was dockside, behind the Ferry Building. I just really liked the wood structure of the bus stop.

splinesmith - I like the sea monster and your use of marker.

the lunacy - The loose line and colors are good.

erik76 - The use of the monochromatic blue is a nice touch.

frosti - I love the watercolor openness of the birds on the pier.

emma - Are you working the brush pen around? Nice monkey.

Enrico - Cute shadow photo of you. I always like looking at your watercolors best.

Debbie Huey - You really captured the water from the fountain.

Bidcreep - Great use of lines to indicate space, especially in the flock of sketchers.

martha - Cool feel of watercolors is subtle.

annimator - Nice meeting you! I like the pencils of the two with the fishing pole.

2danimator - The volume of the first drawing is great.

Ryan R - Good meeting you! You caught the rock balancing really well.

Pica - I think your monachromatic drawings read better.

Gerald - Thanks for the maps and arranging the ferry tickets! What were you using to draw? Pencil? I love the composition of the first one.

hoffman - Nice subtle use of pencils. The 2nd watercolor has a postcard feeling to it.

Danny - The comic idea rocked! I'm impressed with it being so spontaneous!

amelia - I saw you drawing me! I'm enjoying the loose lines you've got in your sketches.

Habihanna - Your two filled pages really captured the day!

Funkybat - The loose gestures of people are nice.

marinaomi - I like the denseness of your lines.

Whew, what a lot of drawings to see! Thanks for sharing everyone! :D

I was searching for the seediness in Sausalito. This was my first time ever trying out watercolors, so... keep that in mind. I had a great time!

And yes, I couldn't resist that Miller Lite trailer.
