Hi Everyone!

Where do we want to go sketch this time?

How about somewhere new - to the waterfront edge of LA, in San Pedro? There is Ports O'Call Village (http://www.sanpedro.com/sp_point/portcall.htm) with fishing/harbor scenery, and Crafted Marketplace (http://craftedportla.com/) for people/shopping crowds to draw.

If you have more ideas, please chime in!

I love both of these ideas Shiho. I will try to organize my Animo Urban Sketchers to come down. Just let me know final decision and I will see what I can do.

great suggestions Shiho, im leaning towards San Pedro, maybe because its been 140 degrees and that would be the coolest spot but it sounds interesting at the same time.

either way im looking forward to it.

I think those are good locations Shiho! I've been meaning to make it out to Crafted to see my friend's booth. This will be a good opportunity. :D

Sketching is so marvelous in that it captures a moment in a place and it is meaningful to see the Space Shuttle in your sketches. The color adds a lot and these are all interesting to look at.

Here are some sketches from sketchcrawl in Ports O' Call in San Pedro, plus fashionably quirky people at Crafted marketplace nearby. More details are on my blog post (http://shihonakaza.blogspot.com/2012/10 ... crawl.html)

storydesign, that is so cool that you were able to see and sketch the Shuttle up close. I sketched it when it was parked next to Randy's Donuts late at night, but I sure had to work my way to the front of the line for a long time to get this view.

Awesome stuff, everyone. I really slacked off on this one, playing with my dog and waiting for inspiration. Still glad I came, though.
