Sketch in Portland Oregon July 11 & 12, 2nd annual west coast urban sketch crawl

For us west coasters who are not going to the urban sketchers organization meeting in Paraty Brazil - urbansketchers.org - there is a meeting in Portland Oregon - 2ndwcuskskcrawl.blogspot.com - on July 11 & 12. Last year it was in San Francisco and drew over 100 sketchers. It coincides with Enrico Casarosas 44th worldwide sketch crawl - sketchcrawl.com - If the links I posted here don't work email me, [masked].

    We enjoyed staying here again with the Portland Urban Sketchers event as the centrepiece of this visit. Meeting and seeing the work of others was a highlight.

    Too bad. I cannot attend this event. I could have met wider range of USks there.
    Portland is a great city, too. This isn't the end of the world.

    Also this is really for your info, there is no need to RSVP here, the Portland people would like to know if you are going, see their page.
    Hey Denise, that sounds interesting, might see you in Portland then.

  • Denise

    Hi Don,
    This also coincides with the ICON8 Illustration conference in Portland July 9-12, which I am attending.

    February 15, 2014

  • Don M.

    Right, I should have said there are no registration fees or anything, all free as far as the sketching goes, you pay your own travel, room, food. No limit on participants, the more the better. Portland is a great place to visit.
    Thanks for making the links work Sigrid, see you tomorrow.

    February 14, 2014

  • Sigrid

    I made the links work so you can just click on them.

    February 14, 2014

  • Sigrid

    Sounds great Don, I haven't been to Portland in a while but it's one of my favourite cities. Sounds like this can be a last minute decision, no registration limit or fees, right?
