DATE WILL BE Saturday OCT 19 2019 for Tallahassee

Post by markfletcher » Wed May 01, 2019 2:41 pm

Hi Artists:
We WILL Sketch Saturday OCT 19 2019 at GOODWOOD MUSEUM AND GARDENS for WWSC 65:
Despite Tropical Storm Nestor and World Moderators (too late update of calendar): Thanks to Gustavo for getting the website back on track with an early start on 2020! :thumbup:

Goodwood Museum Director Nancy Morgan personally invited us.


You can get in the Goodwood grounds as early as 9 am Saturday Oct 19th.

In case of rain:

You need to check in at the Visitor's Center to get into the Big house (FREE for sketchcrawlers).

Please bring something to sit on: no one is allowed to use the furniture in the Goodwood museum.

There will be a wedding in the carriage house, so be respectful!
We can start at 9 am, must leave at 4 pm. If people want to continue after that we can decide where during lunch or at 4 pm.

Meet at noon at the cafe to discuss/compare sketches from morning.

Thanks for your patience!
Mark


PS We are Sketching Oct 19th, because the world moderators did not update the forums / calendar in time.

So we had to plan on our own, like the rest of the interested sketchers in the world. Thanks to France for taking the initiative!

I missed the 63rd WWSC, definitely will join this time. Can't wait! Buying guide for glass baby bottles with silicone sleeve and high-quality omelette pan. You can also read my favorite recipe here.

So, Mark Fletcher is out of town, in Indiana? I think... some "I" state... setting up his art show. Go Mark! Which means the organizational responsibilities shift to other shoulders, and those shoulders having shrugged or likewise skipped town, on to mine, so -- Hi! I"m John and I will be your Organizer for this the 64th World-Wide Sketchcrawl.

And it's gonna be in Railroad Square! A lovely little industrial park turned art enclave turned gentrification project (circle of life, right?) but still cool, with coffee shops and restaurants and thrift stores and a caboose and drum circles and big sheet-metal sculptures and even a couple of galleries and did I mention coffee shops?

We can meet at the Black Dog there (there's another one at Lake Ella -- not that one). It opens at 8, and I'll get there as early as I can manage, probably around 9, for handshakes and air-kisses, then we meet up back there again around 1 to compare and contrast and take pics and sing the anthem and then we *keep going* because to live is to sketch.

See you there!
John

Whew, it'll be midnight soon so I'm calling it, another grueling sketch deathmarch completed. Turnout at the actual site was limited to me and Jan and Jennifer as far as I could tell, but I have no doubt that those of you who could not make it there still took part, and will soon post your contributions here. Speaking of which there's a pretty complete explanation of how to do that in the top level of the forum (short answer -- you have to host the images elsewhere and hyperlink to them in the post) or you can email your images to Mark... who might end up emailing them to me cuz he's still busy with the show... but either way they'll be up by mid-week at latest.

John

Hey, haven't received any other sketches, and Mark's still too busy setting up his show to post any he might have received. When you do send them include any text you want, your name, captions, narrative and any links you want showing, like so --

World-Wide Sketchcrawl 64

2019/07/27 Black Dog in Railroad Square

World-wide etc day again! And me at my table with my little hand-lettered sign “World-Wide Sketchcrawl 64 - Get Sketchy!” waiting for everyone else to get there.

Image

Here this woman wonders who the hell I am and what’s with all the scribbling already. And that sign... "get sketchy"?! Eewww

Image

Back of the line portraiture, less socially awkward, less personally stressful.

Image

Now the happy time, carbs and caffeine ordered, paid for, on the way!

Image

Later, finally, hands shaking from too much coffee, I adjourn to Bird’s Aphrodisiac Oyster Shack for soothing tequilas and a different class of model. Still on the mission but undercover, sign safely tucked away -- this is a bar, and I am not a brave man.

Thanks for organizing, John.
I appreciate you taking everyone's votes/recommendations/warnings seriously.

Sorry, I was working in some "I" state as you said.

I'll add more current sketches later. I still haven't unpacked completely from my 2200 mile trip north--had to go another 1000 miles round trip south.
Here are some starter sketches.
Please feel free to add your own or email images to me to post.

Enjoyed seeing the new sketches from this SketchCrawl. Great group. The ink line and color drawings of John B are bold. Congrats on your show, Mark!.

Thanks for your message, KJ!
Here's a late entry from Jan. She made a very solid Sketch of Andy's larger than life steel sculpture from when he was a graduate student!
