What we're about

Social Distancing Update: All the below still applies, just by "together" we mean "in the same chat channel".

Currently using Discord, popular with gamers (and some graphic designers I know) which I've mostly used for text chat but also has voice and video and screen-sharing features.

You can click on the invite link to open it in your browser https://discord.gg/xV38xGS .

Or you can download the app https://discordapp.com/download and look for the "Drawing Tallahassee" channel.

I'll schedule weekly events, and mirror some other similarly-distanced special events, and the Discord channel will be open at all times.

See you there!

***

Get together and draw. Let loose your creativity! and all that. Bring ideas and tools and sketchbooks and share in the glorious conversation. Or hermit up in the corner and scrawl away quiet-like, doesn't matter, whatever you're wired for socially, being in general proximity with people of like mind while creating can be fun.

I'm interested in quick sketching -- generally pen-and-ink at the moment -- of alive and active subjects, people, animals, occasionally trees. So I'll be scheduling meetups at coffee shops and parks, sometimes bars, and linking to whatever I can find in the way of local draw-centric events -- figure drawing, sketch crawl, 24-hour comic, etc -- and also events that while not specifically catering to artists offer lots of great material -- cons, renn faires, game day tailgating, etc. If you're into something else, tell me and we can set up a session and see who shows.

Longer term, if we have enough people and enough interest, let's produce some kind of tangible art-thing -- zine, guerrilla installation, web-comic...

Upcoming events (5)

Thursday Drink and Draw via Zoom

Online event

Jumping on the Zoom bandwagon finally, for a weekly video-connferenced event with (or without) the drink of your choice. I'll be running two cameras, one on me, one on whatever I'm working on. You can too if you want, or you can just spectate and kibitz and make requests, or, you know, just hang out. The free version of Zoom doesn't want to let me post a meeting link in advance, so I'll put it up as a comment here when it's time to start. And the free version likewise has a 40-minute time limit on meetings, so as each meeting expires I'll post a new link to the comments section. If you're arriving late just click the latest one.

Monday Portraits and Process (and Coffee and Comics) via Zoom

So I've been doing art classes on Zoom in other venues and there's been some interest in doing a video-conferenced meet here, and now with a cellphone-holder extension arm freshly Gilliganed-together out of bamboo and coconuts I can do a process-oriented thing -- one camera on my pretty pretty face and the other on the sketchbook page as the pen skritches away. Perfect for Zoom-panel portraiture, or requests, or whatever, if you're into spectating. Better yet is if you have your own external camera with extension arm, or a dedicated document camera, or just someone to hold the webcam over the page for you as you create.
