    Hey peepz, the zoo trip was a success, there were three of us and we spend the entire afternoon sketching animals. Results are up in the final post in my sketchbook! So Benzo and I decided we want to have regular meetings on Sundays, going once every two weeks to artis and the other half of the time to cafe's in Amsterdam. Next meeting is upcoming Sunday at 13:00 at cafe/restaurant Vapiano at the main library in Amsterdam. (right next to central station) Lots of people, good lighting and a really good compose-your-own-pasta kitchen. Join us!

    Cool to see people are joining in. I was talking to several of my friends and I believe two are considering coming this Sunday. Things are starting to get going! Oh and RBeek, we're meeting up at 13:00 at cafe Vapiano (adjacent to Oosterdokskade 143) and we start drawing at pretty much 13:10.

    So as with any sketchmeet, we can draw whatever we like, people, objects in front of us, things from imagination etc. But there's something I'd really love to do, and I need the help of several people here:

    Would anyone be interested in playing the game that I believe is called 'Round Table'?
    In this game, we are all given a short time limit to draw a certain subject. The rules are as follows:
    -Someone comes up with a subject to draw
    -When a subject is determined, people are given a time limit (20 minutes?) to draw the subject the way they see it. The more creative, the better.
    -Subjects can be anything you like, as long as they are not too specific. For instance: "Caveman", "Landing shuttle", "Hunger" and "Bleeding organism" are all fine; "Two unicorns dance in the caustic underwater light atop ancient sphinxes" is not. That would be rendering a scene that has been thought out already, while the exercise here is to come up with a scene of your own.
    -Note that you can be as creative as you like with a topic like "caveman". You can draw him gnawing on a bone, riding a mammoth, filing papers at the local accountancy or just show him with nothing fancy around him. Anything goes, as long as it's something you like and as long as the caveman is (at least somewhat) the focus.
    -Everyone who plays in the game gets to come up with 1 subject.
    -When the time limit is over, show us what you've made! Look at other people's interpretations of the scene and how they rendered them, and, if you have one, give a comment or a crit!
    -For increased difficulty, the time limit goes down. 10-minute, 5-minute and 2-minute concepts are all options.
    -For a different increase in difficulty, the time limit stays the same but now multiple different concepts must be made of the same subject.

    Note that this game is how the DSG started out originally (it used to be called Round Table), and I think they really had an awesome idea back then, it's a great exercise in creativity and in drawing what you're not used to.

    So, would anyone be interested in playing the game with me for a while on Sunday? It seems like a nice variety from drawing people and objects to me, to mix things up a little!

    These look like fun. Pity I can't be there. I'd really like to attend one of these someday. Maybe next time!

    So there were four of us at the cafe today, benzo, maarten, rbeek and me. We had a cool time just hanging and drawing, and we played games! Round table and 'draw 1/3 part of a drawing, then give to the person on your right, keep going until finished'. God I love games like that.
    So next Sunday Benzo, Maarten and me are gonna meet up again at the zoo. 12:00 at the main entrance of artis. Benzo and I both have membership cards with which we can give 8 people each a 5 euro discount. So who's with us?

    Edit:
    Note that in the case of bad weather we're still meeting at 12:00 at the main entrance of artis: We're just not gonna enter the zoo then, we're gonna relocate to a bar nearby.
    In case of you (or me) running late (and when the rest already left for the cafe), just give a call. I'll send you my phone number if you PM me.

    Hey guys, lots of rain yesterday, but Benzo and I made good use of the back-up plan. We went to a cafe right next to artis and we hade a really productive afternoon there, doing character design, life-drawing from props (and Benzo himself) and a comic. Since this was then our cafe week, we're gonna go to the zoo upcoming Sunday (May 9th), weather permitting. It's gonna be the same plan as yesterday: meet up at 12:00 at the main entrance of artis to spent the afternoon drawing animals and in the case of bad weather move to the cafe right around the corner. Note that we have passes which give any people accompanying us a 5 euro discount. Anyone want to join?

    Hey peeps, this sketchmeet got cancelled due to sickness. Benzo won't be in town for a bit so we're not meeting on the 16th, but he's back after that so I suppose we're meeting again on the 23rd. If anyone does want to meet up on the 16th, to go to artis or a café, just post something here.

    phade, your online! could you call me on my cellphone so we can discuss the situation? i PMed it to you

    Edit:
    So this sketchmeet was a little messy in setup and meeting one another, but everything worked out just fine! Phade01 and I met up at the zoo and spend the entire afternoon drawing the animals, and when the zoo closed we moved to a cafe and were met by a friend of mine. The three of us started drawing people, each other, buildings and even playing some rounds of round table! Great exercise in creativity that, and it exposes your weaknesses! God I love that game. And yeah, the whole day was just a blast! Really productive and challenging!

    Phade01 (Erik) and I are gonna meet up again next sunday, the 16th in a bar in Amsterdam somewhere to sketch people, sketch from imagination and do some drawing games. The exact time is to be decided, cause Erik is probably coming from zeeland in the morning, which means we're gonna meet up a little late in the afternoon. Maybe around 3-ish? To be decided.
    So, people! Come out of your shells and join us! The sketchmeets are here!

    Ahh this was cool, there were three of us, Erik, a friend of his from the HKU and me. We spent the afternoon and evening drawing people at the cafe, drawing each other, playing round table (which is the awesome!!) and drawing the buildings around Dam square. We're meeting up again next sunday to go to the zoo again, 12:00 at the main entrance in artis. We have a pass which gives people a 5 euro discount, entrance is after discount 13.50. Anyone can join us, skill level is no issue, if you want to join drop a message here in this topic. Who's with us?

    Ah cool, benzo is also gonna join us. So if you're still doubting, check out their sketchbooks (not mine), links above here in this thread. Those two guys are powerhouses, great to learn from!

So far 20 people have signed up and 15 maybe's, so it's supposed to be something big. I won't be attending however, I have family business I need to be present with. If anyone else wants to join the haarlem one, here's the link:

    Hi Kelp. The sketchmeet was awesome, volgens mij

    Lots of people, loaaaaaads of drawings. And some beer
    Below are the pics I have kept. Maybe some more will turn up here.
    Also btw: This and next week are art events going on here in Amsterdam. Especially next week will be interesting I think. I will be in a squat in Distelweg, where there will be lots of art. And a friend wants to organize to use their cinema for digital collab-paintings.
    I posted more info (and more about the collabs) on my blog.
    Its easy to reach from CS. I'll be there next Weekend and maybe do some oil painting.

    Its now definite: This Weekend Saturday and Sunday there will be Collab painting sessions in the Squat close to CS. There is an art show going on with many artists, and we took their cinema room for doing collaborations on a pc/wacom/projector with anyone who cares to join in!

    They have also cool junk in the backyard for drawing... at least its exactly my taste
    Would be cool to maybe merge this with the weekly drawing group.

    Sounds good Thomas, I definitely want to join in here! Any special time you want to meet up, or do we just do come separate?
    I'm really interested about that backyard, a squat at the docks must have some cool industrial stuff lying around.
