Park-a-Park (sketching in a disposal bin) at Food Cart Fest

Hi sketchers, I wasn't going to post another meetup for this weekend but Julien Thomas just sent me an email this morning that the Park-a-Park ( is going to be at Food Cart Fest in False Creek this Sunday from 12-5 pm. I can't pass that one up!

You can read more about Park-a-Park here too:

So escape the digital world and join me in the analog one for some drawing in the bin, whatever we can see from there.

To get into Food Cart Fest ( — that's a lot of web links for an analog sketching session) you have to pay $2 unless you are a Vancity Credit Union member. In that case you just show your ATM card, I guess.

The bin is easy to get into, it has narrow benches all around its perimeter, an umbrella, and coffee tables. Bring your sketching materials. We can invite passersby in to join us, I will bring some extra supplies.

Park-a-Park will move to Emily Carr University after that, so I will post another one for next week soon.

    That was fun! Bit of a humid day though. And I swear that Food Cart Fest has its own climate zone with extra heat from all that asphalt. Will post pictures later. Thanks Dino, Rachel, Glenn, for joining me at such short notice.
