Drawing weekend snapshots

Friday night Cliff and Emma invited me to go to the Bus Stop Gallery in SoMa for a kind of costume figure drawing party. We got there around 9pm. The place was full of artists sitting all around the rooms: some on sofas, benches, pillows on the floor, and a couple standing around drawing from a corner...The models were part of a group called Bad Unkle Sista and did a quirky butoh performance with lots of sweet poses throughout!
(a couple of pics that I found online from friday:)
We were there for about 3-4 hours just sketching, taking breaks once in a while.
The music varied from a live humming/singing performance to a chill down-tempo that a couple of DJ's were spinning for out delight. So with that said, I have no camera (lost or berried in my room somewhere) nor a scanner the the moment...Well not true, I've got the laptop webcam.. so 1 snapshot for now.... and later in the week I'll scan in the rest and update this very post. deal? cool. Here is a drawing of the DJs:
(more drawings to be scanned later)...


I missed the final (12am..., wtf?) bart subway back home, so ended up crashing at cliff's. We had decided to join the Sketchcrawl group the next day.

Saturday: We thought it would rain all day, yet after getting some In-n-Out for breakfast (hey! no judging) and solid double shot latte from Blue Bottle the clouds started to look friendly in a poetic sort of way letting in much sunlight. The meet up was at a wonderful low key area called the Dog Patch, which is from the looks of it a semi abandoned port area with a cool mix of boat clubs, ship fixing areas, waterfront bars and restaurants, various rusty boats here and there, and some day time offices in lofts, old unused port buildings and cranes that are partially decorated by graffiti (again, i dont know where my camera is, so here are the words,,,) Anyways, maybe 12-20 people showed up to sketch in the area! Super day! Snapshot 2:

(more scans commin)


No drawing tomorrow though. Canada vs. USA gold medal hockey game. yeah! (in case you are wondering, yes I was in favor of the russian team...But that was earlier... Go CANADA!
