heya! i work downtown on the Kits side, i live in east van just a hop and a spit from downtown. my weekends are usually open, can we finger paint??! rofl yeah sign me up! track down Spartan too we were just talking about how we need a bigger drawing group.
sweet, nice to see this taking off well. Im stoked, i havent been able to draw, this is the perfect excuse.
I've added a couple of you guys to my msn, heres mine for those i havent recieved contact info from yet. firstname.lastname@example.org
Though I haven't posted in a while, Warhead tracked me down - I am sooooo very down with this. Ideally we could do it for a couple hours after work during the week sometime, but I'm pretty flexible!
-- The time has almost come, we have lots of people now. But even though we do, anyone is aloud to join, that can make it to the meeting spot.
I thought since we are waiting for more people, but if they don't show we will still meet. But, where do you guys, think a good spot to meet is.
Me and a few others, were thinking Downtown Vancouver, cause that is pretty much the most popular part of Vancouver. And everyone mostly knows there way around there, better than other parts of Vancouver.
Also, i am going to go Downtown, soon, to check for a place where we can all meet, and i will take pictures of it so we can all see. And post them on here.
First, what is a good day for everyone to meet?? I and some others were thinking a Sunday? Also, if everything works out by this weekend, would everyone be up for meeting this weekend? Or Next Weekend??
Also i emailed Brasshorsekiller again, so hopefully he gets it.
Oh yeah and JMAY - we will hopefully meet once a week. Your in

Sunday would be good. I am not sure if I could do every week but biweekly would be ok. If the weather is good Kits beach has lots of subject matter & a pretty cool comic shop on 4th. MetroTown is a good for the people watching as well & lots of open spaces. Can't beleive I almost forgot False Creek/ Granville island..
I'm more into the inside thing - at least until we get this thing rolling, anyway. That said, Metrotown is a bad, bad place to do this. Its loud, there's mallrats everywhere and no place to relax and draw...unless you count the food court which is arguably even louder and more crowded than the rest pf the mall. How about the Soho Cafe on Homer St.? Its downtown, cool music and nice laid back atmosphere...?
Just my 2 cents
Soho is on Homer St. - directly accross from 1111 Homer. I don't know where Subeez is, but I know its a big IGDA hangout . To get to Soho from the granville skytrain station, just walk down granville till you hit Davie, then take a left onto Davie and walk till you get to Homer, then take another left, and it should be on the right hand side fo the street, when you are facing north.
Ok guys this is it. I went downtown today, but i couldn't really find that soho place well, cause i am walking and, it was supposively so damn far away from where i was. So i found a different place. But it seems pretty good, i have pictures.
- Ok the place is called -- BLENZ COFFEE BLENZ
- It is located on the corner of Granville and Nelson street.
- The girl working there said it was cool if we come in there, if we buy a couple drinks or something, like cofee, pop, juice, muffins and shit, whatever you want...
They are open at 8am to 4 pm.
One of the reason's i chose this place was because there wasn't very many people in there. So lots more room for us. And there was tables close together, and fit 6 people on each. and there is 2 rows, therefore 12. Plus more scattered around. If we don't like it, we can always move somewhere else together.
If you are taking the bus and skytrain, how to get there on skytrain. When you get to Granville Skytrain station, when you are coming out of the skytrain station, take a left, and get on the otherside of the road, and walk all the way down the street, until you see BLENZ COFFEE BLENZ, and thats the place, it is really close to the skytrain station. It will be on your right side.
Here are a few pictures of the place.
If i missed anything, tell me.
Now also, what would be a good time for everyone to meet?????
Also, do you guys want to meet this sunday or next?????
Everyone please respond to the above questions.

How about, we make the meeting time 11:00 Am, and if people are a little late, thats fine, i will be there at 11:00am ish
Also, kryaus and orion thats fine if you get there around 11 or 1130 or w.e we will be there, but try not to be to long, the place closes at 4 pm
OK so everyone that is going, go to the meeting place this sunday then.
And we will make it a regular thing, every sunday same time we can meet. Also i will post reminders, some.
Bring, all the drawing supplies, you want. Tria markers, pencils, pens, erasers, rulers, etc.. Your imagination. A note book, if you want, incase you learn something from others, and want to right it down.
