Congratulations !!!

Postby enrico » Mon Oct 27, 2008 6:34 pm

Congratulations everyone!!! What an amazing global drawing marathon day!!! I am simply amazed at the amount of cities and locales posting away their sketches. Great great great!

The world brought together by paper and pencil!!!
Thank you so much for making this the most successful and widespread SketchCrawl EVER!!!

The next SketchCrawl will be in early January, already looking forward to it. Date tbd soon!

Regarding the SKETCHCRAWL notebooks we've been talking about:
I am working hard to trying to make a special and unique sketchbook, good paper, good cover, not too expensive. I hope to have them printed and ready in the newyear!!! If not for SketchCrawl 21, certainly for the 22nd.
I am also considering a reprint of t-shirts ... if you'd love to buy a t-shirt or two, let me know by answering this thread (just to gage interest) thank you!!!

cheers

Enrico

PS
almost forgot a small personal plug:
The book VENICE CHRONICLES is available for order at my blog:

thank you!

-- congrats to you, e. starting this!

Such a wonderful idea - but I keep repeating myself! Whomever I am talking to about this, is just like "errgh?" in the first moment but then is just stunned away, when the get the idea and are scared, too, as it seems to be so strange, to do so as all the hundreds did this time again.

P.S. :: I'd be in for a shirt. And good luck on the sketchbooks. VC is constantly scheduled for Nov 26, 2008.

Enrico, we owe you a huge thank you for the SketchCrawl idea and website. It is an inspiring thing, a force for unity and cohesion in a fragmented and fractious time. By initiating this, you have made the world a better place for us all -- and that is a huge contribution.

In Toronto, I continue to spread the word of SketchCrawl. I thought it would be quicker to catch on in a city of nearly 3 million but slow is OK too. Growth doesn't always have to be fast. I think the T-shirts will help. It would be good to have an easy way to communicate what we're doing when we go out on a Crawl. Because I'm so attached to the type of paper I usually use, the book is something I would try out but not necessarily continue with. But I would certainly give it a try.

Looking forward to the next Crawl!

Nicola

Congrats e,

Another great turnout from beginning to end. I dont' think I left Muddy Water's Cafe until 6:15pm :D

Glad to hear you're planning to have the Sketchcrawl sketchbooks made. Looking forward it!

My vote is in to order more shirts. Not sure if you're planning to use new colors? If not,
I can use a new Navy and Maroon.

Not sure how expensive printing stickers get...but it seems like a popular inquiry when they see
it slapped on my sketchbooks.

How about basic postcards or inexpensive business cards that promote sketchcrawl? I've always
given my business card to others and having to write the Sketchcrawl website on the back. But lately, I just
included the link on my business card.

Congratualtions yourself Enrico - Sketchcrawl is really snowballing and Venice Chronicles looks awesome. I got my copy a few days ago and was surprised at how long it was! I stumbled on your site while you were still posting installments to VC but didn't imagine how thick it would be bound. It really looks great, love the bookplate too!

Count me in for a shirt or two as well.

Enrico, I also would like to thank you for creating this avenue for us to meet and draw with others who are into the same thing we are.

I love the T-shirt, sketchbook, and all other ideas brought up on this post!

I plugged your book on one of the latest posts I did on my blog check it out at http://joshfrost.wordpress.com/

Once again thanks you. It was fun flying down from seattle to join in on the SanFrancisco chapter. I will do everything in my power to make the Seattle chapter grow large!

Thanks
- Josh

I think T-shirts are a great way to get people interested. I'd love to show support for Sketchcrawl.com by wearing a t-shirt and slapping a sticker on my drawing book.
Thanks again for the organization of this cool website.
