SketchCrawl is on August 27

Scw" A year or two ago a good friend of mine had a fun bachelor party
consisting of visiting ten bars and pubs along the N-Juda Muni tram line. He
called it the "PubCrawl". And crawling we did, in fact we didn’t make it past
the seventh pub. Quite the night, but that is where I got the idea for the name
SketchCrawl when a few months later I decided to do a whole day of intense
drawing around the city.
The basic idea: to record nonstop everything I could around me with my
pencil and watercolors. A drawn journal filled with details ranging from the all
the coffee I drank to the different buses I took. After a whole day of drawing
and walking around the city the name seemed quite fitting: “SketchCrawl” – a
drawing marathon. The crawl was more tiring than I imagined but also more fun
and exciting than I had thought. Giving yourself this kind of mandate for a full
day changes the way you look around you. It makes you stop and see things just a
tad longer, just a bit deeper … needless to say I loved it.
I soon figured out it was much more interesting to do the marathon with
a group of artists instead of all by myself! And so SketchCrawl turned communal.
After a whole day of drawing it proved to be amazingly interesting and inspiring
to share and compare other people’s drawings and thoughts. Different takes on
our surroundings, different details, different sensibilities.

The next step was making the SketchCrawl a World Wide event…"
