Postby carol feldman » Sun Jan 11, 2009 7:57 pm

We managed to meet for a couple of hours in Tel Aviv. It's a start! WE had a great tiome and plan to meet regularly so we will be ready for the next one!

Here is the blog link for the photos:

Hi Carol,

I am amazed by the beautiful watercolors you have on the blog, and also to see that the will to draw goes beyond limits.

Limits that most of us would not dare to cross.

Very impressive, both the pictures and the motivation.

Hope you all can have a regular and peaceful routine soon.

Best wishes,

Montalvo

Hi all,

I´d like to tell all you folks about 2 publications we had in Brazil about Sketchcrawl.

A national newspaper cover and a full page (PDF page 3) about our meeting in São Paulo, with pictures and all (also showing an image of our friends in Israel), and a special report at Revista Ilustrar number 9, our best brazilian online illustration magazine.

Please check them out at:

Revista Ilustrar (look up issue #9)
O Estado de São Paulo - PDF (1,8 Mb)
(the translation of Israel´s participation in Sketchcrawl - at the lower right corner of page 3 - is right below)

Cheers,

Montalvo

WAR
One of the most remarkable presences was Israel, with people from Tel Aviv and Galilea. On friday the participants had cancelled the event, due to the war engaged at the Gaza Strip. But lastly they decided to go to the streets, pencils and books in hand, to depict their cities.

"It was strongly symbolic, because it is a country enduring a cruel war, and even so, there were people willing to get over it and draw the city. Too bad the conditions did not favor any Palestinian participation", said Montalvo Machado, who organized Sketchcrawl in Vila Madalena.

One of the posted drawings was Marcello´s, from Galilea. He portrayed an olive tree, described as a symbol that brings "hope". Along with it the israeli sent to Sketchcrawl website a message in English: "Peace from Galilea to all places in the world where children, men and women die. Tomorrow may be your kid, your wife, your husband... That´s why we must live in peace".
