Admin Monday/Tuesday 27 JAN 2015 - Donal gets the finger out for the first time in ages.

GUYS! I've been swamped with stuff recently, so this is where we are. What a load of stuff to catch up on:

Updates:

Jay has started a new Secret Sunday Scrawl in the Secret Garden Cafe on (or near? It might still be Williamsgate street or whatever) Sea Road, Galway. You can find us having the next one on the 8th of February at 14:00 hours.



We're almost done with assembling a "Galway Pub Scrawlbook" - it's going to be a collection of sketches and works from our Scrawlers. If you are a regular or even part-time member, hit up the event and get in touch to have your Art featured in the book. But you better move quick! It's almost time to go to press.

And speaking of Jay, you should check out his podcast with Gordon MacKay - still going strong.

Links:

Every Day Original is a website where you can buy beautiful, small original Art from amazing Artists at a reasonable price.

Muddy Colors has featured the displays from the Temple of Art. There is going to be a book and a documentary!

Ruth was pestering Brett Bean for advice. He writes back. :)

Here's some awesome Steampunk amimals made from old bits and pieces by a Russian Artist, Igor Verniy.

DeviantArt changed its layout, with an awesome Daniela Uhlig background on the landing page.

Brain Pickings ran a good list for the Best Art & Design books of 2014.

I'm sure you've all seen the Aaron Draplin designing a logo video, but if you haven't, it blew up the Internet for a while for good reason.

Justin "Coro" Kaufman updated his site - check it out.

You should watch this video about Origami Artists, it spreads out to cover Art more generally -


James Newell pointed in the direction of this Irish animation - Combat Action Team.

Iggy found this article about a cool Street Artist, Odeith - unbelievably 3-D looking.

You probably want to download this pack of images and textures from the NASA ISS expeditions.

Patrick linked to free painting/sketching program Krita.

Ruth linked to this awesome gallery of Art by Chiara Bautista. If you like that, you should also check out Natalie Hall and Soey Milk.

Michael Craughwell has been featured in his own show on Discovery. It's all over the Internet, so you can find details here, there and wherever.

You can find us next Monday in McSwiggans as usual for our next Pub Scrawl - #128 - A freshly washed Pub Scrawl doesn't happen every day!

Galway Pub Scrawl #125 - Boundaries (and how to break them...)

More Art & fun in the Pub! McSwiggans gave us free finger food! - They're so good to us. Our transplanted Cork Drink Draw'er - Anna - took some pictures of me working too, so I actually appear in this set!

We're currently assembling a "Galway Pub Scrawlbook" - it's going to be a collection of sketches and works from our Scrawlers. If you are a regular or even part-time member, hit up the event and get in touch to have your Art featured in the book.

Look at all these happy Scrawlers!


Katie and Patrick are working on something for the Scrawlbook!


I was drawing some action.


Yolande is very close to the end of this project - wait til you see it finished, you guys.


James had two things this week -


Patrick is trying to crack a certain facial expression -


And the lower table - also very happy.


Ger draws men in armour -


Chuck draws from fashion reference -


Alanna was back! Awesome drawings -


Michelle was crafting hard -


Jay was working on more of his bookmarks -


Ruth's toned paper drawings are class -


Anna's photos - look! Me working!


Katie in soft lighting. :)


That'll be the last Pub Scrawl of 2014 - The 22nd of December is too close to Christmas for comfort. We'll be back in our favourite pub, McSwiggans, on the 5th of January, for Galway Pub Scrawl #126 - how many scrawls would a Pub Scrawler scrawl if a Pub Scrawler could scrawl pubs?

Admin Monday 01 DEC 2014 (What? Wednesday? What?)

Some weeks I end up even further behind than usual... ;)

Join us in McSwiggan's on Monday the 8th of December for our next Galway Pub Scrawl - #125!! Boundaries (and how to break them), where we will be joined by the "Big Knit Party" - if you or anyone you know would like to learn a bit about knitting, follow the link to Facebook and buy a ticket using the instructions there. You can get the tickets at this link, but there are steps to follow, so go over to the Facebook link first. The ticket gets you all the materials you need, and regular Pub Scrawl shenanigans will be going on as usual!

The Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year show has been fairly entertaining this year - you should go check it out! There is a good gallery of entrants up on their site.

As shared sketchbooks are on my mind, I went over to Moleskine's official sketch blog, Moleskinerie. There is some super cool stuff there recently.

Ragz thought these 16th Century/Super Hero mash-ups were interesting.

Yolande warped our minds with these 3D tattoos.

Mary was interested in Moleskine and Adobe's collaboration on a sketchbook you can digitise using clever tech. It reminded me of Mod Notebooks, although they're not quite as immediate.

Iggy was linking to a blend of Food and Art.

If you want to see amazing storyboards from Alien:Isolation, you go here. The same guy (Calum Watt) has an awesome Sketch Blog.

GoniArt puts up amazing process pictures on this blog right here.

Ruth linked to this awesome video -
