Sketchcrawl is a worldwide sketching event first organized in San Francisco. The idea is that a bunch of people get together someplace to hang out and draw, then spend the afternoon hopping from one locale to another. Drinking (as implied by the “crawl”) is not mandatory, but does seems to be encouraged in Boston.
This Saturday there was one in Central Square, and since it was so close, I had no excuse not to go. The Cambridge sketchcrawl was organized by David Marshall.
David is not in fact 12 years old. I just didn’t draw him very well.
We started out at the Middle East, then moved on to the Field. Sophie, a photojournalism grad student at BU, perched in the window and took pictures of us while we were distracted by our drawing.
Also in attendance were Jess, Desmond, and Stephanie.
One of the best parts of the sketchcrawl was the materials swap, mostly because I got to borrow Jess’s awesome silver sharpie.
More pictures of the crawl can be found here.
