Galway Pub Scrawl #100 - Epic Pyjama Party!

I've gotten really bad at saying "Oh hey, here's the photos, I'll update all the details tomorrow and so forth" and then not doing the update cos of work and time and not being bothered. But you're probably only here for the pictures anyway, right?

Anyway, I have work again tomorrow, so here's the photos -

Admin Monday-ish 19 NOV 2013

We're nearly at 100 Pub Scrawls! Our big number 100 is next week in McSwiggans, so make sure to come join us then!


So this evening, within an hour of posting, the Irish leg of the Sky Arts portrait Artist of the Year is on, featuring our friends in Dr. Sketchy's. Make sure to check it out at 8.


The Munich Art Hoard thing has been fascinating to me.

Patrick pointed us towards these amazing wire wrapped sculptures on This Is Colossal.

He also reminded us of the awesome "Masters of Anatomy" book that is being Kickstarted for the next 20-odd hours.

The Elegant Gentleman's Guide to Knifefighting has these funny animations of classic paintings -

Donato had a major exhibition of his works - sadly in Alabama, so tricky to get to - "From Middle-Earth to Space & Beyond"

"Friday Illustrated" is a great idea for a blog, and featured an interview with Eva!

Daire linked to the always-handy gesture drawing animation.

Jason Chan updated his blog with his most recent book covers and illustrations.

Leif Peng ran an amazing series on Ben Denison over on Today's Inspiration.

What would Superheroes do for a part time job?

"Painting Stuff to look like Stuff" is experimenting with a new tag "The Best Worst advice of my Art career".

Everyone make sure to come to our 100th Pub Scrawl next week! There may even be cake!

Galway Pub Scrawl #99 - When the love affairs with Pumpkins ends

Another night of laughing and Art at your friendly local Pub Scrawl! We has an absolute BLAST this time around (and can you credit that we've done somewhere in the neighbourhood of 100 of these?)

Here's your pics -

Tune back in in two weeks for our "official" number #100 - Epic Pyjama Party! I reckon we've gone past 100 a while ago, but we were cautious when we started numbering in the 30's. :) We'll probably have cake! Come join us in McSwiggans!

Another round of updates and links from your friendly local Pub Scrawl!


Daire Lynch is running a Life Drawing class on Mondays (oh oh) for the next few weeks.

I'm not sure if he has spaces left or not, but you can contact him to check it out.

I missed a chance to participate this year, but Self-Portrait Day was outstanding as always.


I liked these blendings of Star Wars characters and Fine Art paintings.

Marco Battaglini combines pop culture, graffiti and tattoos to make these cool pictures -

PaddyD. blew my mind with this link - images of birds clipped from real feathers!

Javier Perez combines little sketches and everyday objects on his Instagram to make awesome little pieces of Art.

This is a cool blog - one that asks different cartoonists for "10 rules on drawing comics". My favourite were Johnny Ryan's - although he may not have been taking it seriously.

I didn't have much Halloween time this year, but I did like Matt Dixon's usual Halloween Lady Line-Up.

That's it that's all - come join us next Monday for our next Galway Pub Scrawl - #99 When the love affair with Pumpkins fades.
