Regular sessions are usually on the 3rd Saturday of every month from 3 – 6pm BUT…*there will be no regular session in July.*

However, we’ll have
a special (free!) COMIC-CON POP-UP SESSION this Saturday July 11.

Saturday July 11
5 – 7pm
Convention Center stairs
between the entrances to Hall C & D
(see below for more info)

Drawing! Contests! Prizes!

FREE

Join us for a special Comic-Con inspired pop-up session – almost like a flash mob Dr. Sketchy’s style – and enjoy drawing and contests hosted by us. We’ll have also have prizes for the best costumes and gifts for art monkeys who bring their friends.

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:
    -sunscreen
    -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:
    Convention Center steps - during Comic Con
  • 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.
