Drawing! Contests! Prizes!

Important info and considerations…Costumers, artists and full time geek girls Ace and Cinsangel pose for Dr Sketchy’s San Diego Comic-Con pop-up session, Sat July 11, 2015 www.drsketchysandiego.com

  • We will NOT be inside Comic-Con so you will not need a Comic-Con badge to join us…we will be “Comic-Con adjacent”
  • Parking downtown will be heinous…consider:
    -catching the trolley in
    -getting dropped off via taxi, Uber, pedicab, friend, etc
    -catching the Coronado ferry from Coronado across to the Convention Center
  • Getting through downtown to us will be like a pilgrimage…plan to arrive by 4:30pm so you can get to us/find us by 5pm
  • This is a surprise pop-up session – almost like a flash mob Dr. Sketchy’s style – so we will not have tables or chairs set up…consider bringing: an easel or clipboard for drawing and a cushion, blanket or fold up chair for sitting
  • Since it is a pop-up session there will be no advance reservations and “seating” will be first come first served – get there early if you want a good spot
  • The session will be outside so consider bringing:
    -a parasol or umbrella
  • Let’s make this the bestest pop-up session in history…
    invite your friends, family and co-workers to join us (it’s free after all) – we’ll have gifts for art monkeys who bring their friends!
    -feel free to come in costume – we’ll have prizes for the best costumes
    -help us spread the word –  follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and share, tweet and post about the session (@DrSketchySD, hashtag #DrSketchySD and #SDCC)
  • Bring your sketchpads and drawing implements…but we’ll have basic art supplies (paper and pencils) if you don’t want to lug yours around

Location, location, location…

  • The address of the Convention Center is:
    111 W Harbor Dr, San Diego, CA 92101
  • We’ll be on the Convention Center stairs between the entrances to Hall C and D. Here’s a photo of our location:
    Convention Center steps - empty with sign
  • Note the “No Comic Con Access” sign – if for some reason, we need to move our pop-session from these stairs, we’ll leave a note on the back of this sign with the new location info. We don’t foresee there being any issues but we have a plan B, just in case.
  • Here’s another photo of what it’ll look like with people:

  • And to help you find us, you can find a video of the location and what’s around it here

P.S. Mark your calendars for our next regular session: Saturday August 15 from 3 – 6pm. And remember you don’t have to wait for one of our public sessions – you can always book your very own session. Find out more here.
