Symposium Participant: Pete Scully

Hello, my name is Pete and I come from London. I live in California now, and am the Urban Sketchers correspondent for Davis. I've been in the US since late 2005, and work for a small department in a big university. I sketch whenever I have a moment, usually lunchtime. I mostly sketch in my watercolour moleskine and use mostly micron pigma pens and cotman watercolours. I am most interested in recording the world in which I live on a near-daily basis, to capture it while it's still there, because one day I might forget it.

I've never been to Portland but everyone says I will like it. I hear the local beers are good, and there are lots of places to buy zines. Point me in those two directions and I'll be fine.
E and 5th, Davis
I'm looking forward to the Symposium because I want to learn not only how, but why other people sketch. When you're out sketching a city it's a solitary experience where you often go where the wind or sunlight takes you, and it's a revelation to find that so many people do exactly the same thing, for mostly the same reasons. I am an urban rat, and I love cities, as characters with giant personalities and centuries of baggage; urban sketching allows me to examine my relationship with the city streets I love.
I have really enjoyed being part of Urban Sketchers, as well as taking part in the Worldwide Sketchcrawls, looking at and learning from everybody's work with all their various styles has been inspirational, and gives great impetus to keep going, try new things. I'm a little more confident now than I used to be, but you never stop learning. I believe drawing is all about lines and choices. I also believe it's incredibly personal.

  1. Hey, Pete. I've always been impressed with your sketches and your very, very neat sketch books. You may recall I chose your sketch of a cat on a windowsill in New York as my gift for making a donation to Urban Sketchers last winter. I've had a giclee made of it and will get around to framing it one of these days. See you in Portland!

  4. Hi Pete! You're right, beer & zines will be easy to find. I'm a local Portlander and share those interests - I'd be happy to lead a small after-hours expedition of any comics/zines fans to Floating World Comics and/or Reading Frenzy. There wouldn't be too much time before they both close at 7pm, but at least Floating World is a quick walk from PNCA.

    As for beer options - Bailey's Taproom downtown is a must, but don't go there hungry, they don't offer food. Another beer joint you should hit if you have time to go farther afield is Green Dragon, just a short walk from downtown over the Morrison Bridge - really great beer selection there, and no Portland visit is complete without walking across some bridges!

    Also, you do gorgeous work, I look forward to meeting you.

  7. Cheers! Thanks for the tips Kalina, I do want to check those places out. I've read about Reading Frenzy, just wish it opened later! I got the Zinester's Guide to Portland which is an excellent book, I wish I were staying up there longer now. Thanks for the beer tips, I'm anticipating doing some in-pub sketching.

  28. Health Experts have proven that regular exercise coupled with a good diet allow you to live longer and healthier. In this busy day and age, not everyone has the time to go to the gym - resulting to a lot of overweight people that desperately need to exercise. A healthy alternative is for you to Buy Home Gym Equipments that you can store in your own home or even at your office. Here are some tips when buying home gym equipment.

    First, know your fitness goals and keep these goals in mind when you are buying home gym equipment. One of the biggest mistakes that people make is buying the biggest or trendiest fitness machine simply because they like how it looks. More often than not, these end up gathering dust in your storage rooms or garage because you never end up using them. It is important to take note of what particular type of physical activity you want or enjoy doing before you buy your exercise machine. If you are looking to loose a few pounds and you enjoy walking or hiking, a treadmill is the best option for you. If you are looking to tone your lower body while burning calories a stationary bike is your obvious choice. Similarly, Special Equipments for Core Strength Exercises, Strength Training Weight Vests, Core Strength & Abdominal Trainers, Home Cardio Training, Strength Training Power Cages, Strength Training Racks & More.

    Second, set aside a budget before Buying Home Gym Equipments. Quality exercise machines do not come cheap. They are constantly exposed to wear and tear when they are used properly. So, pick machines that are built to last and have passed quality certifications to get the most out of your money. If you are operating on a tight budget, think about investing in several weights, We can Provide you High Quality Home Gym Equipments at Very Low Prices for your Complete Uses: Core Strength Exercises, Strength Training Weight Vests, Core Strength & Abdominal Trainers, Home Cardio Training, Strength Training Power Cages, Strength Training Racks & More.
