|Carol, Natalie, Peggy and Alice examine a sketchbook. I wonder who finally grabbed it? ;-)|
USk Seattle held its sixth annual Gab & Grab this morning. Held at a public library, it’s an opportunity for show-and-tell of our favorite sketch supplies and a place to swap books and materials we are no longer using.
I love sharing and reusing resources this way, and it’s always fun to hear about new tools and materials people have discovered. In fact, I had fully intended to document the event by sketching it like I did last year, but I got so involved in listening to the show & tell and taking photos that (gasp!) I forgot to sketch!
Thanks to everyone who brought in things to share and for participating!
|Good grabbin'! This wasn't all of it -- some of the goods had already been snapped up by the time I took this photo!|
|Kate shows off her new Lamy pen that she got from|
the Lamy flagship store during her recent trip to Germany.
|Alice shows us how her DIY easel is assembled. She learned how to make it on YouTube videos.|
|Peggy, who participates in the USk postcard exchange program, showed some of the many cards she has received from international sketchers.|
|Anne explains how she archives information from books that she wants to keep for reference -- and then gives away the books to lucky recipients like the rest of us.|
|Sue tells us about the proportional divider that she is finding very helpful in correctly scaling her sketches.|
|Carol shows us her erasing guide and explains how it is used.|
