09/06/07 - Gallery Hop & CCG Sketch

Hey! It's that time of year again, the city-wide gallery hop is coming up Friday September 21, 2007. Several of us enjoyed hanging out at the coffeehouse last June so much we've decided to do it again! Come join us - learn about the CCG and see what we're currently working on. Bring your sketchbook or journal and join in on the merriment!

2nd CCG (Lexington KY Comic Creators Group) Gallery Hop Event

In an effort to expose and promote our group while being able to create art in a different, inspirational and hopefully collaborative atmosphere, we have been trying to find a place for some of us to draw comics or just sketch in a public environment. Maybe this will even draw out some of you closet extroverts to come to a CCG event! Please send us feedback on this...

Some of the possibilities....

* Sketching
* Large scale comics
* Interactive comics (leave panels, word balloons, thought balloons, or captions empty and invite participation by visitors)
* Immersive comics (including passersby or actual events in the story)
* Big group jam page (strawberry is really good, oh no not that kind of jam) think jazz music, improvisational and collaborative...
* Big group doodle page (no stress here - just go to town or be laid back - whatever!)


* Contact Jonathan (email:, phone 276.5528) or Wolf (cell: 859.749.6430) if you are interested (or just show up if you are a commitment-phobe!) and to get more info.
* Think BIG and BRING your own supplies ...just in case we don't have your favorite marker. You may consider white foam core board if you want to work big on a wall. Sharpies are cheap but bold. If your ideas are more modest sketchbooks are always a good idea!
* PLEASE - nothing TOO MESSY! (We want to be able to keep coming since we like the place!)
* We should have a large table so the regular scale paper and supplies should be OK too.
* Bring photocopies of your work if you want a red line critique.
* Be ready for something different - you can do it the same old way at home!

WHERE: (subject to change call there or the contacts to be sure)

* Common Grounds Coffee House, 343 E High St, Lexington, KY 40507, (859) 233-9761 Upstairs "conference room"

WHEN:(subject to change call there or the contacts to be sure)

* Friday September 21st 2007, 6 - 9p and beyond?
