It was my second or third Jam and it’s quite the interesting experience. On the last Wednesday of every month, a bunch of animators/artists/curious people and sometimes their supportive spouses get together at Shanghai and draw. You create an image according to the month’s “theme” on a section of a piece of paper and pass it along for another person to build on.
The people at these events are incredibly talented animators/cartoon artists who can create a scene out of nowhere, so it’s always a bit intimidating for me, since I have neither an animation degree nor tons of experience drawing comics. But it’s a relaxed atmosphere and a chance to get silly, plus drawing from visual memory is something I am trying to work on. Last night’s theme was Spring, so there were many bunnies in the drawings.
Once I arrived at the Jam, I discovered that I accidently grabbed the wrong bag and brought my videocamera instead of my regular photo camera. Oops! But then, I thought it would be cool to videotape some of the artists, as they sketch away with razor sharp focus. Here’s hoping the clips turned out! 🙂
