Let's try and get some of the OC out and drawing :-)

Here's a list of places that would be good for a sketchcrawl:

Balboa Island
Irvine Regional Park
Disneyland (entry fees apply :( )
Santa Ana Zoo (and park, fees for zoo only)
Laguna Beach
Newport Beach
Fashion Island (a mall crawl + sketch crawl == ?)

I'm open to other suggestions as well :-) I'm fairly sure I'm not the only OC resident on here, so hopefully we can drum up a few more once we have a location settled. Regarding this, feel free to PM me on this board, or use any of the contact buttons :-).

Updating the list of possibilities - it was pointed out to me that there is a fee at the regional park as well:

$ = $5-$10
$$ = $10-$20
$$$ = $20++

Balboa Island
$ Irvine Regional Park
$$$ Disneyland (entry fees apply )
$$ Santa Ana Zoo
Laguna Beach
Newport Beach
Fashion Island (a mall crawl + sketch crawl == ?)

I'm inclined toward Balboa Island, as the only real issue there is parking, and there's a good mix of beach, buildings and people. Plus, its free :-)

Code: Select all

Hi, tell me where I will be there.  I am up for Balboa.  The parking is a problem so earlier the better.  Not interested in paying for entry but it will take a bit of money to feed the parking meters on Balboa Island, too.  I am in Fullerton and have participated in the last 2 Sketchcrawls.  Keep me posted, thanks

Excellent! Balboa Island it is - I suppose we should pick a landmark, how about this one?

As to time, while i tend to be an early bird, I've never seen a crawl get going before 10 am, most often 11. What do you folks think?
