Time once again for a list of upcoming events and certifications.
Free Local Events:
Once again, I want to thank the people who came to the drawing event held last week in downtown Eugene. A local newscast interviewed me during that event, and here you can see that video showing how much fun I had sketching with markers.
Here is a photo of one of the drawings I sketched while at the event. This piece is about 18" x 24" (I think), all drawn with Copic Markers. Any of the drawings I made can be viewed through Eugene Storefront Art Project (ESAP) at 200 W. Broadway. This Friday is the 1st Friday artwalk, so be sure to get out there and visit your local art galleries. Artwork drawn during the event can be purchased as a fundraiser for ESAP for $25.
