I Left My Art in San Francisco…

We had a lovely mini-vacation by the Bay, eating all sorts of things and walking for miles and miles. We had amazing ice cream…

…at a place with this for its mascot…

It’s been a bit nippy and drizzly but that didn’t dampen the mood. We bought way too many books and saw so much art everywhere.

We saw all sorts of beautiful street murals in the Mission, including on one of my favorite of all streets, Balmy Alley:

I did see the following on a car’s bumper sticker…

…but then again it was on this car….

Oh, and I gave my talk at the HOW Design Conference about creativity and sketchbooks. At first, I was a little worried about the turn out…

  1. I was there! Amazing talk. Loved your upbeat approach to storytelling, even the bittersweet portions of your journey. Been drawing a lot the last 24 hours. Hope to keep it up.

  2. Sounds like a very good trip. Archie McPhee! It’s a crazy place….they turned Seattle’s most well know librarian (Nancy Pearl) into an action figure! Reminds me I want to go sketch there. Hope you have a safe trip home.
