This is gonna be a big one ... I wonder if we should go back to our Embarcadero, Filbert Steps, Coit Tower, Little Italy and Chinatown classic route ... any other ideas ?

Also, the following day, on SUNDAY 20th at 5pm SketchCrawl and Maverix Studios will host a special Art Auction and benefit (at the Maverix Studios space -1717 Potrero Ave). It's gonna be a fun evening with silent bidding on hundreds of pieces of art and even a raffle with prizes. If you're in the area, save that weekend !
More updates on that one soon.

All of those places sound wonderful. I have a feeling this one is going to be a huge crowd, so wide open space sounds good. Probably will have to split into a few groups...

Ok, we need to hammer out the details a little early this time, to make local press releases. So here goes!

We are indeed gonna do our classic San Francisco itinerary !!!

Meeting is 11am at the Ferry Building, in front of Peets Coffee (on the bay side).
Then from Embarcadero > Filbert Steps > Coit Tower> Little Italy > Chinatown!

Only thing I am not sure of yet, is where to have our share fest to end it ... maybe the gardens on top of that parking lot on Kearny ?
Another option could be ending Yerba Buena gardens by the Moma and the Metreon ...

what do you think ?

I'd vote for Yerba Buena gardens as an ending spot. There are a lot of places nearby to get a drink or something to eat, if crawlers are interested in that kind of thing.

Although that can kind of be said for anywhere in San Francisco...

Really looking forward to this one. I'm shopping my donor form around :)

That's a good idea Emma, the gardens there are really nice and the food court in the Metreon building could work very well too ...

I also think that Yerba Buena would be a great place to end. The whole fundraiser sounds like it is going to be incredible!

Hey there, I was just wondering if this is the confirmed route and end meeting place. I'm trying to figure out where I should park for the big day.

11am ferry building (Peet's coffee) probably end up around coit tower and little italy around 1 or 2 ... we could have lunch in and around washington square park .... maybe hang out in chinatown after that ... heading toward Yerba buena around 5 or 6 ...
there you have it !
How's that ?

:)

confirming next week's sketchCrawl

Postby raison » Sun May 13, 2007 6:28 am

Hi,
I'm new to this... and a bit timid as well. I'd like to venture into the world of collective drawing... and would like to confirm the details.

Meeting at the Embarcadero at 11:00am, traversing & drawing throughout the day, ending up at Yerba Buena in the evening. So parking SOMA or BARTing is optimal for the occasion.

Anything customary for these events besides the necessary wares and the obligitory good cheer? sketchbook, sunblock, hat, water, etc...

How has the art for the auction been procured?

Has the press been notified? This is an amazing cause and you certainly deserve props for organizing such a beneficial event! Hopefully someday there will be less need for Emergency.

i've been spreading the word!

Cheers!

Hi raison,
glad you're joining in!

All the things you mention sound like a great idea to bring, not much else needed ... and Barting it can sure be a good idea ...

As far as press: yes we've sent a press release around.
We'll see if we get any love back ...

As far as the art auction:
We put out a call to friends and artists, mostly in the animation and illustration industry, to send us framed pieces as donations ... we are getting a nice array of art ...
We also have a raffle for which we are gathering donations such as signed Pixar artbooks, bundles of creator's comics and even a one hour certificate for body works massage ...

that's about it ...
gonna be fun !

As always if you can't make it at 11am and want to join the group later in the day, you can call me to figure out our position ... 415 317-2731.

IF any of you will be making donations or has already some donations from any sponsors we will have some friends from Emergency, that can collect checks and cash.

Please don't be deterred from coming by the fundraiser, this is by no means mandatory ... you're very welcome to come and draw and not donate.

Thank you, hope to see many of you on saturday and sunday (at the art auction)

Enrico

Greetings:

I just found out about this event, I will see about attending. If I can I will be driving from Sonoma County. Any tips on parking lots? I may only be able to attend until 1-3pm.

Thanks
