21st WWSketchCrawl

What a great sketchcrawl this past saturday! It was hands down the most attended with artists participating and gathering in more than 90 different locations around the globe. Don’t miss checking out all the drawings on the forums! It really still blows my mind that on these days we are soo many around the world drawing at the same time, it’s such a good feeling. A shout goes out to San Paolo in Brazil with a record 120 artists sketchcrawling there! Amazing! :) In San Francisco we weren’t too far behind with roughly 100 artists participating. It was really fun seeing everyone at the De Young Museum at the end of the afternoon. Below are my day’s watercolors. I started with sketching my daughter, whom I’ve honestly found for quite some time hard to capture. She’s so ridiculously adorable it’s hard to do it justice. These are among the first attempts I feel pretty good about. So, that’s it … and for next SketchCrawl early April! We’ll have a date asap!

    Hi Enrico,

    Your daughter is really lovely, you must be such a proud father. Easy to figure that out seeing your drawings of her, lovely as well.

    You got a lot of beautiful sketches through the day, hope I can get loose and productive as you are, but Sketchcrawling definitely is a lot of fun. We had such a good time here.

    I put some new pictures at the Sketcheria, and will work on the English version as soon as possible.

    Thanks for confirming our record, we are so happy about it all.

    We had a full page on a big newspaper, with photos on the cover and all. I’ll send you a PDF file with it all tomorrow, ok?

    Best wishes and cheers from Brazil!

    There’s a “Yamada” feeling in your daughter’s sketches, that’s pretty appealing ! I love it !
