...there have to be old school sketchcrawlers in SF - any ideas out there for a location that hasn't been done before?

I will be in San Fran on that date and am looking forward to sketching with everyone. However, since I live in Tucson, I can't comment on where to go, but I hope you guys pick someplace interesting for me to see and sketch!

we've typically stayed to areas that are near or have easy access to food, and often have hit somewhat touristy areas. Perhaps a trip down the new "T" MUNI line would be good? There's the ballpark, a shipyard, and the "historic" dogpatch. I'm told Little Hollywood is somewhere nearby as well.

It seems to be a place where old ships go to die.

I have to say, that part of town isn't the most 'scenic', it's more industrial/architectural but that can be cool too. I assume you've already done the Haight/GGP, the Palace of Fine Arts/Presidio, and the Legion of Honor/Lincoln Park, as those are kind of obvious and we're on #15 here after all...

definitely not scenic :) It is very different from previous crawls though, and is easily accessed by transit (which is another tradition).

I'm up for anywhere though, I missed the last one!

According to Enrico's blog he is on vacation, and should be coming back soon.

Hey Frosti - some of that area looks interesting from the air, all industrial and grim with pockets of unused land - but I wonder how much of it is fenced off - can you make it right out to the water there?

What other interesting places are there? Is the Japanese tea garden open to sketchers? specially a large group? or is that too far from everything else? one website mentions its on the Golden Gate park... ah I see.. I guess there is quite a bit to look at... I have only been to the two museums there (Academy of Science and De Young Museum).

I wonder how horrible parking may be?

I'd like more sketch and less crawl (in general, not in response to anything that's been said so far)... last time we hiked from the ferry building to coit tower, to little Italy, to china town, (and my group ended up at union square).

I'd just like a little more time to kick back and draw, rather than trying to draw in transit :)

that's my 2 cents :)
