More Sporadic Bigger Events and Outings
These used to be more or less monthly; nowadays they're somewhat sporadic. if you have an idea for something, definitely mention it in the thread. Once we determine a basic plan i will send it out to the CATL-List (e-mail). In the past we've drawn at museums, the zoo, parks, the airport, filled entire sketchbooks in 24 hours, partied and sketched on rooftops, and celebrated fictitious holidays, etc. These don't come around very often so it's definitely a great opportunity to make art happen with a very fun group. highly reccomended.
and least importantly, here's the old message... not so correct anymore, but here for posterity's sake or something...
>I'm currently transplanted in roswell, Ga.... but would be willing to travel a bit to meet up with >some group of art fiends. repost here or pm me anytime. If you pm i can hook you up with my cell # and we can chat rather than send >50x email messages.
>I'm most interested in getting together for some observational drawing challenges, possibly plein air drawing or eventually going in on hiring a model if a >following develops. critiques, sketchbook sharing, etc, would be great as well. i'm looking for probably 2.5 - 4 hours minimum, possibly more to make >it worth the travel time. Starting out i would be av. for weekends, but possibly a well coordinated week night would be an option.

Transplanted to Marietta
I've just moved to Marietta from San Francisco a week ago. I'm not sure how far Roswell is from here, but I'm hoping to meet up with fellow artist while I'm here. Let me know the best way to contact you and hopefully we can meet or start up a sketch group.

I don't know many Atlanta area people that are into concept art, but there are a couple of good figure drawing sketch groups - here's some info on them:
wednesdays, 7pm to 9 or 10pm:
Feel free to message me if you are going to one of these groups or just want to hang out and work on concept stuff.

Re: Vhy's above post:
I went last wednesday (november 16) and really enjoyed it. the setup was very nice and cozy--reminded me of the eclectic drawing studios from art school. All the folks there were super nice........i've definitely been to some other sessions where you feel tremendously guilty for, uh, erasing on your paper too noisily or something.
Would still be interested in getting together with some conceptart minded folks for some "sketchjamb"s or to just drink rockstar and crit each other's sketchbooks. messsage me folks and i'lll send ya my cele tele

I'm planning on moving to ATL next year, and I wanna know what life is like down there, apt. prices, the people, the girls the jobs, and the social scene...and of course the artists.

I'm in Dunwoody. At least that's what my mailing address says. It feels more like Roswell/Alpharetta. I'm glad to see some action here and in the CATL thread. I'm going to have to fire up the scanner and start representing for the ATL.
Look forward to supporting the thread.

Greetings, all. I'm in North Carolina now, but I grew up in roswell. I started the North Carolina thread and I'm not getting a huge response from that. I visit the fam a couple of times a year, so I might be able to hook up with you guys. Let me know if you will accept a transplant.

Excellent. I accept your notebook paper and tentacles and will extend my comeraderie in return, along with fresh belly button lint and dried snake's skin. While I won't be able to visit in person very often, I can always shout advice and witty quips form the digital astral plane. This will have to sustain you for now.

I live in dunwoody as well, it's pretty nice up here. I wouldn't mind meeting up, as long as i have time to whip up a few amazing sketches in my book to impress whoever.

Five or six hours of CATL sketching - who could possibly resist? I've already shot in my RSVP and I hope the rest of you do as well.
My sketch pad is need of a little hardcore rockin' and this will be a solid opportunity to be influenced by my local peers.

Awwww, I already feel left out. Even the folks in my state are too far away to get together. Damn middle of nowhere east bumble fuck! Oh well, I'll get some sketches together and see what you guys think.
