SKETCHCRAWL! Hey all you illustrators/drawers/sketchers, this Saturday, November 21 is Columbia's first official SKETCHCRAWL! Its part of a network of drawing events happening around the world.  Groups in about 150 cities get together, draw en masse, then post the results to a website - www.sketchcrawl.com. This is the 25th Crawl, and there is a great global community that has grown around the event. Sara Schneckloth is officially launching ours here in Columbia.

If you or anyone you know is interested in participating, we will start on the steps of the McKissick Musuem at 10 am, and work our way out from there, ending around 2.  People should bring whatever drawing materials they wish to use. Contact Sara at schneckloth@gmail.com with further questions. 
*And for those of you not in Columbia, you should still participate wherever you are. I'm sure you could still post the stuff up on the site. Or check and see if there's an event in your town!
AAF GREENVILLE  If anyone would like to receive emails from the American Ad Federation in Greenville, SC, let me know at kevinarchie@email.com. The people in charge there wanted to give USC AIGA and Design students the opportunity to know what kind of events are going on up there. You can check out there website here and shoot me an email if your interested in receiving updates from them.

Hey Folks,
Sorry I haven't update in a while. I've had some family issues and school has been kickin my behind and still continues to do so right now. So this will be rather short and sweet. Here's a last-minute show for ya'll to get yourselves noticed. You can submit art and make some cash as well!

“A Work of Art” fashion show, produced by Fashion Retail 388 students, will be held Wednesday November 18th at 7p.m. on campus at the McCutcheon House. Art students will be able to display their work before and during the show. It is possible that the art is sold in a silent auction but that decision would be made on by the artist of course. This would be a great way for students to get work into the community here at USC!
They are looking for:
- Advanced level art (Junior/ Senior)
- Art of color pallet: Red, Green and Blue
- Art of any medium
The students that participate will be listed in the program along with their artwork and have the opportunity to make some money. 
Contact Erica McCandless with questions at mccandlj@mailbox.sc.edu

That's all I got today.
