It’s another great year with the Lubbock SketchClub. As we enter our third year we have a lot of our regular goodness, plus some all new awesomeness in store. Here are a few highlites for January!
FIRST FRIDAY ART TRAIL
“Freedom of Expression” Art Show – Local artists showing off their unique styles in one show from 6 – 9 pm, THIS FRIDAY!!!

FIGURE DRAWING GROUP
The Sketch Club figure drawing group is back and we will be meeting NEXT Wednesday (Jan 7) at the garden and arts center 6:30 til 9:00. Cost is $7.00 per artist. These sessions consist of several quick warm-up poses, some 5 minute poses, ending in a few longer poses. Also we will be alternating between nude and clothed/costumed models from week to week. If you have any questions please contact Robert Garza super1701b AT gmail DOT com
There’s nothing quite like drawing with friends. If its been a while since you’ve felt inspired or just had fun drawing? Come out to the sketch night and get in on the creativity! It’s free! Just bring your sketchbooks, pencils and an attitude of fun! Join us every Saturday from 7-10pm at Freebirds World Burrito at 4930 S. Loop 289!
If you are planning to attend STAPLE in Austin as an exhibitor in March, it is important that you put in your application as soon as possible. Prices go up on the tables January 31st, and it was about this time last year that the tables sold out. So get in now! I’ve bought a table for myself and Amber, as well as to promote Lubbock’s own comic book Expo – coming Saturday May 2nd, 2009!!!

STORE SIGNING and ABILENE SKETCHCLUB
I will be doing a guest artist signing at Premiere Comics in Abilene TX (3458 Catclaw Dr.) Thursday January 22nd. I’ll also be hanging out with the Abilene Sketch Club that evening if you’re in that area and want to drop by. I hear they have a great group going in Abilene, and I’m looking forward to checking it out. If you’ve been wanting to give it a try, this will be a great chance for you to get into the mix. www.myspace.com/abilenesketchclub
