And here's a map Casarosa drew for the San Francisco contingent prior to the start of the most recent Crawl. The idea of SketchCrawl, according to one of Casarosa's fliers, is to "draw irrevocably for the whole day, record all details you can, and share...." In other words, "sketch till you crawl." You might say it's a pub crawl with ink instead of drink. (Well, as you can see from the last stop here, a pint or two is not out of the question.)
SketchCrawl drawing by Japanese participant
Since the first, one-man, Crawl, the event has become a group and global affair. During the last World Wide SketchCrawl, Japanese illustrator Marty Ito, aka PaintMonster, contributed several drawings from Sapporo, Japan, including this street scene. Ito's drawings, along with those of other participants, appear online in the SketchCrawl forum.
