ISLAND LIFE SHORTS
Join worldwide drawing marathon

Advertiser Staff and News Services

SketchCrawl, the art version of a pub crawl, comes to Honolulu. For a day you meander around Chinatown and sketch (or write). Sound good? Meet at 8:30 a.m. tomorrow in front of Zaney's Restaurant, 1170 Nu'uanu Ave.

Organizer (and architectural designer) John Yamashige will fill you in on the event, then you'll break into groups and put your pen to work. SketchCrawls, started by San Francisco artist Enrico Casarosa in 2004, will be happening the same day around the world. Check out the global community at www.sketchcrawl.com. For info on the Honolulu event, call 286-6566.

FINAL WORD

"These kind of monsters, they don't usually have a sex life onscreen, so I wanted to bring that to the part. I pushed that side pretty good."
