SketchCrawl, the world-wide sketching marathon, takes place two weeks from now on Sunday December 11.

Founded in 2004 by Enrico Casarosa, an Italian storyboard artist working for San Francisco’s Pixar Animation Studios, the idea came from a bachelor party pub crawl; instead of drinking their way around town, SketchCrawl participants spend a day of “intense” drawing. The most recent San Francisco SketchCrawl at Alcatraz is well-documented with a Flickr pool (while last November’s SketchCrawl devolved into a chalking event).

Already into the Sixth World-Wide SketchCrawl, the Vancouver SketchCrawlers seem a little sparse. There is no decision on times or places yet, but check the Vancouver forum for updates.

Pastels, markers, watercolours, anything goes. Last year’s Vancouver participants do recommend toques and gloves.
