A bay area online magazine called The Bay Citizen has been doing this really cool illustrated journalism feature called "Drawing Crowds", where they send a an illustrator to review a local event by writing and drawing about it. You may remember a previous illustrated piece I did for them in January about Silent Knight the sea lion, which I believe may have helped inspire the Drawing Crowds feature.
Last weekend, I attended the Dickens Christmas Fair at the Cow Palace near San Francisco, and had the opportunity to publish my own illustrated write-up in The Bay Citizen's Drawing Crowds section about my experience. I'm really happy with how it turned out! Here's an illustration I did while watching peformers at Mad Sal's:

Ca Academy of Sciences: Nightlife, Thursday, December 15th 6pm-10pm
Have you heard of this cool event that happens every Thursday evening at the California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park? For just $10, you can spend your evening at this one-of-a-kind museum, enjoying the exhibits, drinking cocktails, dancing to the music of live DJs, and participating in various special events. (AND: PENGUINS!) On this particular Thursday, Bazaar Bizarre is running another holiday craft fair as part of Nightlife's festivities, and of course I had to get involved. This time, 40 local, independent artists will be set up in the museum to sell their wares (I hope they put us near the coral reef tank!)
