Seth's Blog: Tenacity is not the same as persistence

Telemarketers are tenacious as well. We all are. achieving new goals in new ways when old one didn't work.

Sketchcrawl #40, 1st West Coast USKers' Sketchcrawl

I love the idea of USKers' Sketchcrawl. I don't mind the confusion of urban sketchers or sketchcrawlers. We all love draw, sketch, and share our works. The passions and the inspirations that matter me the most. Thanks Jim from Washington state who I met at last year USK symposium, Santo Domingo. Without his initiatives and communication back and forth with the wonderful local sketchers, organizations, I wouldn't have so much fun drawing with 70+ sketchers the pass weekend. 

Time for sketches sharing:

warm up at the Ferry Building front island:

Trip to SoCal

Friends and I had a last minute trip to SoCal since their baby is with Grandma & Grandpa in Taiwan. It's been a while that we go on a trip together ever since little Jamison was born. 
We felt young again! We went for the taiwanese food and some ocean breeze. of course some sketches.
