Admin Monday 15th APR 2013

The last one of these seemed so hectic! Let's see how we go this time, with another round of links and updates from Galway Pub Scrawl -


The June Sceitse event is coming to a Burren near us! Haha. It's a chance for us to go hang with other sketchers on an outdoor drawing day trip. Mark your calendars for the 15th of June!

Trevor was wondering aloud on the Facebook group if any of us would be interested in doing a Galway version of Free Art Friday over the summer?...?!? This needs more discussion.

And Ciaran is running a logo competition! I'll post his quote direct:

"I am a member of 091labs and I'm holding a competition to design my companies banner/logo. This will feature on the website which will be up Soon™ and on the various social media I have set up. (Hint: I like metallic Green on dark/metallic background )

The Company name is CreoDrone and offers 3D printing and calibration services. I hope to eventually expand this into CNC Milling, Laser Cutting and other robotics.

The prize for this competition is a free large print of your choice up to 5 hours in duration (worth €50 and not exchangeable for cash). You can select something from Thingiverse or have something you designed printed.

You can submit your entries to ciaran (at) and I will announce our winner(s) on our Facebook ( ) and Twitter ( ) when I make my choice."

And I've been adding our new social media icons to the sidebar ->

more are coming, once I work out my randomiser scripts. All done by Pub Scrawlers, all awesome.


Stapleton Kearns had a great post on how a framemaker makes custom frames

Here's a great drawing tip, in the form of a drawing, from Tulptorials

Seage gives out amazing drawing tips while wearing an awesome hat -

Adam Spizak is making these cool illustrations as posters for his favourite TV shows -

Helen has been getting into old magazines, and linked us to this portfolio of Natalie Clapp, who interned for Juxtapoz at some point. :)

John Potoschnik evangelised for drawing.

Philip Watts posted this awesome video -

Patrick pointed us towards this useful Life Drawing Reference, which is a Tumblr I follow and really like, as well as their sister Tumblr, Portrait Drawing Reference Tumblr...

And obviously Patrick was browsing Tumblr because he also found this blog full of Anime Backgrounds - the detail, as he said, is breathtaking.

Over at The Great God Pan Is Dead blog, he was helping some artists paint the town... blue?

That's it from us yet again! But don't worry, we'll be back with another Pub Scrawl next week - #85 - This Pub Scrawl isn't going to suck itself - and in another two weeks with another load of links, updates & Art!

Ciao people!
