Return to the ID Room…where it all began…

It’s always so nice to step into the old studio where you:  spent days and nights sketching and cad’d it up in, drowned yourselves in rockstar drinks, almost OD and die on redline, crashed out on the couch or table and woke with magoo all up in your face, got yelled at for bringing foam into, glued gi joes to the ceiling, discovered goatse and tubgirl (do not ask), puked all over the tables after a rough night of drinking, etc….

….Dom and I broke back into the room where it all started for us this past weekend (the old ID Studio @ SJSU) and were so happy to see sketches on the walls, messy tables, new couches (thank god), and the biggest time waster-the dart board…

Here are a few of the sketches on the walls…you guys make us so proud and keep on sketching…and thanks ID Room for all the memories!!!

Your keys, wallet, cellphone, and sketchbook…

Ok. So I’ve been guilty at times for not bringing a sketchbook with me. Sometimes we forget or we’re just plain lazy. Make it more a habit to carry it with you. You mind is always teeming with ideas and when you’re out there, many things will visually impact you and invoke some sort of idea or inspiration.

Today was one of those days where having a sketchbook came in really handy. I was at Borders meeting with a couple of people when I spotted a young gentleman who have been serving in the Army. He was wearing this really kick ass army coat. I never knew that the Army issued such awesome threads.

Sketch Crawl @ SF ZOO- June 14th

Hello all,

Lineweights would like to invite you to a sketch crawl @ the SF Zoo on June 14th.  This event is open to all, so please spread the word and bring friends (help us guerilla market this, print and pass out the flyers:) !  We need you to RSVP as soon as possible to reserve discount tickets for entry into the Zoo.  Email us at lineweights@gmail.com to RSVP.  We plan on sketching from 12-5pm, and just like the premise of Lineweights…this event is very simple, for everyone to grow/learn/sketch together.  To follow, we will meet at the Riptide (right around the corner) for cocktail hour.  We hope to see you then!
