That's it - that's all! If you fancy trying your hand or just hanging out with us and having a good laugh, 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!

More links and updates from your friendly Pub Scrawlers!


We're going to try and put together a Galway Pub Scrawl Sketchbook for the end of the Year. If you are even a part-time Pub Scrawler or 30 Day Drawing Challengeer, you can put some Art in for the "Galway Pub Scrawlbook 2014". Details are on the Facebook Page. If you're a supporter, the Scrawlbook will be available to pick up soon (-ish)!

Our friends in Dr. Sketchy's Dublin are getting profiled on TG4 this Thursday at 22:10 Irish time! Keep an eye out!


Everyone has probably seen the Bill Watterson page for Angouleme?

Speaking of cartooning, I enjoy the posts on the "Things by Dan" blog, especially when he breaks down types of pens and their mark making capabilities.

If you haven't seen the products from International Self Portrait Day, you are MISSING OUT. Get on over to the Facebook Album and be inspired.

I've been looking for a good write-up of the 80:20 (also sometimes called the 70:30) rule/concept. While I continue my hunt/warm up to bother to do one myself, here's a great post on Contrast and Variety over at the Temple of the Seven Golden Camels.

Helen linked to Molly Crabapple's 15 rules to creative success in the Internet Age on Boing Boing.

This project by Austin Light illustrates movie titles with one letter removed. Excellent concepts.

The key to awesome fake game trailers is 100% commitment -

Starr Mazer from Imagos Films on Vimeo.

The Great God Pan is Dead was linking to these awesome videos from the "Cute!" exhibit at Rice Cubicle :

The Leaf Woman & the Centaur from Jordan Bruner on Vimeo.

Iggy was also linking to videos this week - real cool ones about floating ink on water to make pictures

Could you enjoy a music video made with pen & ink? I did -

Last Ex- Girl Seizure from Gabe Mangold on Vimeo.

That was the fun we were having over on Facebook for the last fortnight! Come hang out with us next Monday in McSwiggans for Galway Pub Scrawl #124 - more forested than you!.

Another round of links and updates from your friendly local Pub Scrawl! This is the kind of stuff you can find us discussing over on our Facebook page!


Sadly, the last Dr. Sketchy's Galway of the year has been postponed... to be the first Dr. Sketchy's Galway of the New Year! Watch for the return of "80's Hair Metal theme" in February!

Gordon and Jay continue to produce their podcast - check it out!

If you're a skater/potential skater on Facebook, you can go "like" and hang out with Skate Galway


Magnetic Press are printing Tom DeLonge's Graphic Novel, "Poet". Patrick was obviously linking to this because of his love for Blink-182, but the trailer for the accompanying animated movie is also great:

Inktober led me to find a load of cool artists, but I really enjoyed the work of Raul Trevino.

I don't know a lot about Artstation, but I like their community interaction and the cool magazine-style articles they headline their main page with.

Patrick was obviously checking Aidan Moher's blog, where he was praising Dan Dos Santos' cover for The Fires of Heaven -

Olek produces crazy, inventive crocheted works.

There was an amazing gallery of horror Art over on the Richard Solomon Artist's representative blog.

A nice article on John Atkinson Grimshaw over at Amazing Stories revealed this subtle, atmospheric painter of Victorian England.

I loved the paintings and drawings from Kent Williams' latest gallery show - "How Human of You"

I forgot to link to International Self-Portrait Day, but you should go check out the wealth of Art on display over there.

Patrick was also linking to the previews for Sterling Hundley's illustrated version of Treasure Island.

And obviously this was myself and Patrick's weeks to shine, as he was also pointing us to this -

That's it for now! Join us on the Facebook page and come to McSwiggans next Monday at 20:30 for the next Galway Pub Scrawl #123 - This way for Art!
