The San Francisco Sketchcrawl was so much fun and had a great turnout of around 75 people. It was great seeing old friends and meeting new ones. This was actually my last sketch of the day, finished just before our 4:00 meetup.

Micaela and I were going to walk the hundreds of stairs up to Coit Tower to draw it but got distracted by all the other events going on along the Embarcadero on our way. We realized there a was a great view of the tower from inside Levi Plaza, a beautiful, somewhat hidden park that I’d like to return to for more sketching.

You have such a great city to sketch in, lots of eye candy everywhere you look in SF. Love your view point of Coit Tower. Next time I come to SF I’m bringing my sketch book with me!!


Thanks Suzy! It was nice clicking over to your blog and seeing your lovely art and flower photos. San Francisco has endless amazing things to sketch so definitely bring your sketch book! Jana


Hi! I love your work. Could you share with me what type of pen and ink you’re using. Thanks so much!


Hi Karen,

Thank you for your kind words. I’ve tried just about all of the pens out there but my favorite is the Lamy Safari fountain pen with extra fine point (with a little converter in it so I don’t have to use cartridges) and Platinum Carbon Ink. The other pens I use sometimes are the Micron Pigma 01 and Pitt Artist Pens extra fine point. Thanks for visiting! Jana
