SketchCrawl 21

We returned to San Francisco a week ago. Something about getting on a plane in winter-y Toronto on the 4th of January, traversing the whole continent and arriving in a greener, warmer, sunnier place makes me feel just like I did when we first arrived, on January 4th 2007. Which in turn triggers a desire to trek around the city and explore its neighborhoods like we did without fail every weekend of those first few months.

I have spent the last week reliving my first impressions here - not a bad thing to remember! That must be why I suggested to James, and friends Ric and Adrian to hike across half of San Francisco in the name of SketchCrawl; from Hayes Valley, through The Mission, The Castro, Cole Valley, The Haight and Golden Gate Park. It was perfect, at least for me!
As for the others - aching muscles, please forgive me!

Here's a sketchbook page, unfinished.


And here's another, from YSL at The De Young!
Go see it and you'll recognize many famous outfits, like the one from Buñuel's "Belle De jour".

Arrivo qui dal blog di Gianni Gipi, di cui sono amico. Vedo belle cose e sono subito andato a curiosare sull'acquerello, con cui anche io mi diverto.
Ho visto che ti occupi di animazione in Pixar ...

Mi piacerebbe poterti chiedere delle informazioni riguardo possibili stage o corsi estivi in animazione 3D per mio figlio che frequenta ii II anno del corso Virtual and Digital Design presso lo IED di Roma, e che vorrebbe fare una esperienza estiva estera.

Se ti va e non ti secca, puoi mandarmi la tua mail a questo indirizzo notnottana@gmail.com in modo da spiegarti meglio ...
in ogni caso grazie comunque e scusami per il disturbo.
Luciano

Thanks, Joonas!

Hey Rawls, yeah we probably spent more time walking, but the weather has been amazing. Anyway, thanks and keep warm!

Ciao Luciano,
Grazie per la visita e per i complimenti. Allora come io lavoro nell'Art Department di Pixar, posso solo darti informazione generale su questi programmi estivi e rinviarti allo sito officale della compania. Mandero i link alla tua mail. Ciao!

Thanks a lot, Lorelay!

nice sketches!
I was at the deyong sketchcraw couple of weeks ago :)

Luc said...

daniela ... qualche info o link. anche qui se puoi.
grazie 1000 veramente.
un'info ulteriore, pratica. nel caso di stage che te sappia le spese di soggiorno immagino siano a carico dello stagista, e la pixar da eventualmente una mano a trovare una sistemazione ?
