Haha I had to take care of some things with a friend, at any rate, I am sure that we can arrange something like this soon again. Maybe in a couple of weeks? I will be suggesting stuff soon. Then I will stay for the after party. :) What did you guys ended up doing?

we went to a pretty cool warehouse that's now an art space / bar / lounge, and then we ended up being classy rednecks over at Butter :)

Nice. Where is the art space? What is the name of it? Perhaps I can check it out/
BTW I won't be at Siggy this year. But anyone wants a free T-shirt (and a demo of Visualizer tech) you can pop by the Imagination Siggraph booth: http://withimagination.imgtec.com/index.php/news/siggraph-2013-see-the-future-of-powervr-graphics-and-ray-tracing-and-a-preview-of-whats-new-for-caustic-visualizer
Also, for future meetups, we all really liked Bloodhound and that neighborhood area. We're going to host a monthly happy hour there or in that area. I'll also plan some sketch and drinks events as requested. Please feel free to suggest an event as well. Stay tuned!
SWEET! I shall never miss a single one! haha I really had a lot of fun with you guys yesterday..and yes to sketch and drink events! Have fun as SIGGRAPH!!!! See you soon >^________^<
Hi everyone! Happy times at last nights happy hour and great to meet new faces and see old ones. For those going to SIGGRAPH next week, I'm heading down Monday night and leaving Thursday. If anyone is driving down Monday let me know, I'd be interested in carpooling. Otherwise, let's def get together over the convention. Chow!
And for the few that stayed for the after party I will leave you with this image.http://www.newsrealblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/austin-powers-man-baby.jpg
I know Trisha is probably the only one that gets it ;)

I agree! Lol nice

Excited to see everyone tonight! Message me if you have any questions. :-D
Looking forward to this! Also, I just booked my hotel for SIGGRAPH in a couple weeks. Currently flying solo, so if anyone wants to split the room with me, let me know! Is anyone else here planning on going?

Hey Keith, I'm going to siggraph Tuesday/Wednesday and might be interested in splitting a room. Which days are you going??
I'm arriving Monday morning, and have a hotel room right by the convention center for Mon/Tues/Weds night. Looking for another hotel for Thurs and Fri, somewhere in an exploration-worthy area of LA.:-)
Also, anyone interested that wants to chat about it can email me at [masked]. Better than a back and forth discussion on here.
I'm going to Siggraph! I already got a hotel but it would be cool to hang out with whoever goes down there.

Sure thing, those of us going to SIGGRAPH should exchange numbers/cards at the happy hour.
Hello again! I know this is not related to the meet up, but I was wondering if any of you like to go sketching sometimes, whenever you have time. It will be cool to hang out with you, share and exchange ideas, and perhaps collaborate on projects just for fun. :)
3 · June 24, 2013
That would be fun. I sketch, play with ideas on animation/music too so it'd be fun just to bounce ideas.
0 · July 9, 2013
Sweet! Then we should arrange some kind of activity during the meet up. :)
Sure! Looking forward to it. :)

There's a reason I do my artwork on a computer. I'm useless when it comes to sketching/painting/etc, haha. But then again, maybe that's all the more reason to try it.
Exactly! We can combine our skills and create something AWESOME! haha
You could always get a pen tablet and sketch/paint with the aid of a computer too. :P
Yeah, I do have a Wacom tablet. I'm much more comfortable sketching with that + Photoshop than I am with "real" materials.
Do you have an tablet? like an Ipad? that is digital :) Not quite as good as wacom, but does the job for preliminary sketches.
I have an iPad, not a conceptual artist but I do some lettering and typography. Would love to hang out and learn from artists like you those
SWEET!!!! So then we should definitely figure day and time to hang out. :) Yay! I am very excited that more people are interested. That could be the beginning of "MASSIVE MULTIMEDIA PROJECT"or (MMP) for short. haha..sorry about that got carried away:)
Haha reminds me of a multimedia club I made in high school. Definitely interested! :) And I use a Surface Pro. It has an ok pen. I do a lot more manipulation and effects.
That sounds like a great idea.
So I have a silly question- will there will be some sort of markings (like name tags or such) so that people know how to find other members? I am sorry to ask this I am just curious.
Lol not at all. Sure I'll bring name tags or something :-)
A meet-up sign also works well (you can print them out on the "promote" section of the meetup page).

Thanks for the suggestion Gareth!
I'll try to be there! Pacific Rim comes out that day doesn't it?
heck no! This Friday ;-)
Sorry I missed the last one, glad to have another chance!

Wish these happened on a weekend every once in awhile, so I could make it..cheers!
Hi everyone! I changed the date due to the bart strike and Giants game going on. I know many of you take bart and am hoping all that non sense is over by this new date for easier commute. Look forward to seeing you.
I am very excited to meet you all!
