It was a cold, slushy day so we spent the majority of the time hiding indoors with hot cups of tea. We visited the Scrumpy Willow & the Singing Kettle, City Library, the Laing gallery and finished off at Tea Sutra.
We had more people than ever before at this sketch crawl and it was great to see new faces! Thanks to all who braved the cold to come along and draw.

Here is a little plug for our next Sketchcrawl in Newcastle upon Tyne. This time we're staying indoors because it's bloody freeeezing out there.
On Saturday the 26th of January we'll be meeting at 10am at Scrumpy Willow Singing Kettle (89 Clayton Street, Newcastle - just a 3 min walk from Central Station) and then moving on to the Laing Gallery. Lunch will be had at some point then, and then we'll make our way to City Library to draw for a bit and then have a look at each others' sketchbooks.
You can come along for as much or as little of the sketchcrawl as you like. If you'd like to be kept up to date with all things Sketchcrawl Northeast then you can like our Facebook page, or join the Facebook group.
Here is our poster. Feel free to share/retweet it on Facebook or Twitter. I'll probably be tweeting about it lots :)
Here's the poster, and a new illustration for my portfolio. Hurray.
This Saturday the 27th of October, people who like to scribble will be joining forces and drawing things all day in Newcastle. We're meeting at 10am at Central Station (by the main departure boards) and will make our way to the quayside, the Baltic, and the Sage. You can come along for as much or as little as you like - we plan on wrapping up at 4pm and passing sketchbooks around.
All you need to bring is warm clothes, sketching materials, a seat if you don't like standing, a packed lunch or money for food and your beautiful smiling face.
