Fortunately, we arrived at the meeting point just in time. The group was still ordering coffee and chatting outside. I managed to meet up with Enrico to receive my "Venice Chronicles" book with a special watercolor plate inside! (that is definitely getting framed)
Some sketchers decided to crawl elsewhere, but a group of us decided to stay and and sketch outside of Que-tal Cafe.
Here's my first sketch of the day... just at the corner of 23rd and Guerrero. The person sketching in the front, with the "shell-toe" Adidas is the talented Pete Scully (from Davis).
Sitting at the corner block gave me the opportunity to meet Kenny. I can't believe he traveled from Concord? But glad he made it out for his first Sketchcrawl Session.
I was approached by several passer-by's inquiring why there were so many people sketching today? So I referred them to the forum for more info...hopefully we'll see some new faces at the next crawl?
Upon wrapping up, I ran into Nancy Lorenz and her friend Sybil. Nancy is the talented person that created caricature (felt material) characters at the end of Enrico's "Venice Chronicles". Check it out!
After packing up, Josh and I tried to meet up with another group...but ended up getting lost. We ran into Vern and Rick on Mission St. They traveled all the way from Walnut Creek (just like Kenny). Along the way we came across Jackie and her cool bike. We joined her for lunch at a delicious Taqueria' that she highly recommended. She was right....The burrito's were filling!
After lunch, Josh remembered spotting some lucha libre masks a block away. So we decided to tackle the challenge of drawing as many as we could.
As always, great to meet everyone during the crawl. I'll either catch up with you again at Ape-Con or at Sketchcrawl #21. Thanks.
