I will be moving into the Calgary at the beginning of the month. Any CA memebers out that way? :teeth:
November 15th, 2004, 07:31 AM
If theres nobody here,go to eatpoo to find a sketchgroup. I saw a calgary thread that was pretty long when I was looking at the site...you have to be registered to see the poomeets though...Some of those calgary guys are really good... :confident
December 30th, 2004, 01:33 PM
Come on guys. Don't make me talk to the guys at Eat Poo :O
January 10th, 2005, 01:10 AM
wow i thought i was the only calgarian here.. i'd love to get a sketch group goin, but im pretty sure there arent too many more around here.
January 10th, 2005, 12:24 PM
It has only been 2mths to get a reply! I thought with the art college right hear there would be tons of replys.
Are you in the south?
January 10th, 2005, 08:12 PM
NW. actually pretty close to ACAD.
so what did you move to calgary for? was it to go to ACAD or what?
hopefully some more people will reply, but its doubtful, i've been comin here for a couple years now and you're the first other calgarian i've seen.
January 11th, 2005, 01:11 AM
former calgarian here. If you wanna meet a group of artists,check out the calgary thread at the poomeets section in the eatpoo forums. You gotta register to view the info for the poomeets though. But they got a bunch of good artist there. Look out for tom and isric,who seem to be the best of the bunch artistically.
January 11th, 2005, 04:05 PM
Not art related but I am planing to meet some programmin folks & just shoo the shizzit about the gaming industry & such Youare weclome to come along as well
January 24th, 2005, 07:36 PM
Howdy! Now you know for sure that I am from Calgary. Just became active on the forum so not much to add but I'm here.
January 24th, 2005, 09:02 PM

January 26th, 2005, 10:01 AM
January 26th, 2005, 07:05 PM
Older than Wheeljack :dead:
January 31st, 2005, 01:27 PM
So whats up guys? Are we sketchgroup bound or waiting on more activity
January 31st, 2005, 06:36 PM
New on the lingo here. Sketchgroup? sounds like hanging out at the local coffee shop and doodling. I'm down but it is just a matter of figuring out when and where. Last time I headed out to a local sketch group I ended up in the middle what was a cross between a pyramid scheme and some bad mojo comic book guys. Heh I also forgot my wallet. Just wasn't my night I guess?

Ya that is about it. Bitch about comics, help each other out with projects & sign up to Amway. You know the usuall.
It was really good in Vancouver. Sat around for a couple hrs drawing whatever, shooting the shit & realize you aren't the only weirdo in the world
February 1st, 2005, 08:01 PM
Yeah I'm down. We just gotta figure out where and when and all that. I live in Ramsay so I'm pretty central .
February 2nd, 2005, 05:23 PM
Best times for me are Mon, Wens & Fri. after 7 or so. I live in the south SW so if we split the differnce & met somewhere around South Centre Mall ?
February 8th, 2005, 02:51 PM
I think that can be arranged. I try to head out once a week with a buddy but the times vary because of work. Drop me an e@mail off post and we can set something up.
February 23rd, 2005, 10:55 AM
I'm also down for that :)
February 23rd, 2005, 03:54 PM
Looks like we are meeting at the Tim's near South Centre @ 7pm
Its South of Anderson right beside the new Cannery Row Restaurant.
Sorry if I confused anyone
February 28th, 2005, 01:41 PM
'Fraid I won't be able to make it tonight. One of my kids has a nasty flu bug , so I will be spending my night looking after her.
Maybe later in the week. Fire out a time/place & hopefully it will work
March 6th, 2005, 10:50 PM
How about we go for round #2?
March 28th, 2005, 08:51 PM
Another Calgarian here, up in the NW...
April 1st, 2005, 03:39 PM
Sorry for the dela in getting back to this forum. We should try & set something up. Anyone still interested?
April 25th, 2005, 03:39 PM
I'm down but how about someplace more central? I suggest Inglewood.
June 17th, 2005, 12:37 AM
Hey, Calgarians! I live downtown by Stampede, I'd love to join a sketchgroup!
June 25th, 2005, 02:14 AM
yeah i'm still up for it. not sure why i was unsubscribed from the thread...back on here now, tho!
June 28th, 2005, 03:36 AM
So has one meet up already happened?
July 8th, 2005, 07:45 PM
I'm a Calgary artist :)
July 8th, 2005, 10:40 PM
We are on a tight schedule at work but in about 2 weeks some of the guys & myself would be down for a sketchgroup
August 2nd, 2005, 11:36 PM
I'm getting together with a bunch of guys on Thursday around 7pm at Timmy Hoes on Blackfoot Tr S.E. I don't know the cross street but as far as I know it is the only Timm's on Blackfoot. All are welcome!
August 3rd, 2005, 10:44 PM
Damn dude.. Blackfoot SE is too far for me with all the crap going down at work, but for sure post again if you're getting together again...
August 3rd, 2005, 11:06 PM
Wish I had a car.
I live out in Kananaskis. :/ Beautiful area! Just a little secluded. I have some photos on my webpage.
August 6th, 2005, 06:38 PM
Thursday went down pretty good. We had about 6 people turn out and we got some good sketching / bullshitting done. We are going to try and make this a bi-weekly thing so stay tuned....
August 9th, 2005, 09:16 AM
It is great that you made it happen. Can you guys post some of the sketchs you did?
August 15th, 2005, 09:11 PM
So we are heading out for another Sketch club session on Thursday August 18th at the Tim hortons on blackfoot Tr. Around 7 ish. See ya then.
August 21st, 2005, 12:54 PM
So we had another sketchclub session gang. This time the turnout was not so big but we still had a good time. It's going to be happening every other thursday so if your want to come down you know where and when.
September 12th, 2005, 08:17 PM
Sketch club is still on if anyone is down. So far not too many of you concept art guys have shown up... We're still waiting for some new faces. I forgot to post for the last time but I'm on it this time. Thursday, Timm Hortons on blackfoot. Hope to see ya then.
September 26th, 2005, 07:04 PM
Sketch club on Thursday.. So far we're expecting 4.
I haven't posted any of my stuff from the sketch club in this thread but I did post some of my stuff on another thread. Check it out http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=52563
See ya around.
October 8th, 2005, 10:40 PM
Wait, did I say that out loud?
Thought I'd post here since it's the closest geographically. I find it hard to believe that the only Alberta artists around here with the courage to start their own thread are Flamers... But all teasing aside, have you seen/heard of anyone else from Edmonton on this site? It would be great to make some contacts...
OK...I'm going to graciously retreat since I'm outnumbered :D
October 9th, 2005, 12:53 AM
HAR HAR. To tell you the truth the only Canadian Hockey fans that I don't Despise with great fervor are Habs and Oilers fans. Every one else are just scum! Oilers fans are just misguided but I respect them b/c they are at least albertans and they did have some really good years back in the 80's. heh heh.
When this thread was started it looked like there was some interest but so far I've had the sketch club going now for a couple of months and only local non CA people are comming out. I have not heard tale of an edmontonian posting besides yourself but the odds are that they exist... If I ever hear of one I'll point em in your direction. In the meantime you can post here. I don't mind and some good natured hockey jibes mixed in with art talk is never dull.
Speaking of sketch club. this week is off gang. I'm going to the home opener but it should be on next week. Same time, Same place.
October 12th, 2005, 07:07 PM
Hey guys... I'm another local Calgarian :)
Just wondering when the next sketch meet was going to be (Oct 13 @ 7pm?)/location etc (I'm not sure where the Timmy's you're talking about is - the one on 46 Ave SE?)
I'll be truthful, my drawing isn't all that good, I'm more of a sculpture/maya modeller type, but I need to get my illustration skills up, so maybe I could pick your brains at the meet. (I think I need practice more than anything)
October 13th, 2005, 03:22 PM
C'mon down! No we won't be having a sketchclub tonight but maybe next week. It doesn't matter what your skill level is at. It's just about sitting around and doodling some and talking shop. We meet at the Timmy Hoes on Blackfoot Trail. THe only one and it is on the east side by a Mary Browns and a Taco time. I'm not sure the cross st. but you can't miss it.
I'll post to let you all know when the next one is hapening.
October 17th, 2005, 09:28 PM
Ok, This thursday at Timmy Hoes @ 7pm. See ya then.
October 18th, 2005, 01:09 PM
Man I just can't catch a break & get down to these...
If anyone is interested the IGDA is having a meeting next Thur.
Not a sketch group but for anyone that wants to meet locale game producers it is a good time to do some networkin & have a couple of pints
October 18th, 2005, 07:01 PM
And here I thought you never checked these posts! heh heh.
Well don't worry Shannon, We will be keeping this thing going bi-weekly for a while so we'll be there when you can make it. Where does the IGDA meet?. You mentioned Pints and since thursday is a flames game I'm wondering how much networking can be done? Maybe some Power Schmoozing between periods? What time do you meet?
October 20th, 2005, 11:09 PM
Sorry I didn't make it to the meet tonight. Blah I ended up having to work overtime. Have you ever noticed that managers hold on to information/projects until the day before they need it??
Anyways... I hope it well tonight, and I'll make it to the next one :)
Have a great weekend.
October 25th, 2005, 01:55 PM
Well you didn't miss much. A couple of guys couldn't make it so it was a small turn out. I'll post again for the next one. Probably next thursday.
November 1st, 2005, 08:15 PM
It's on! thursday at the same time and the same place.
December 17th, 2005, 08:22 PM
So we have been making this thing a semi regular occurance but so far none of you boys have shown up! I think the most we have had was around 7 so not too bad. One of the guys is putting together a web site with some of the silly stuff we come up with on it. I'll get him to post a link to it here when he finishes it up. Merry Xmas all and I'll post again in the new year to let you know what the deal is.
January 16th, 2006, 03:52 PM
The game developers are going to have another meeting on Thur Jan 26 @ the Elephant & Castle downtown @ 7pm
December 4th, 2006, 11:46 AM
I'm in my last year 'o high school and I need to interview a professional artist, partially for school but mostly for my own benefit.
The interview can be in any format.
Let me know if you're interested:
December 4th, 2006, 12:24 PM
We have a regular sketchclub going on and we are going to probably get together this weekend either Sat or Sun afternoon. When I know for sure I'll post it up here and you are welcome to to swing by and grill our brains. All of us have worked professionally in one capacity or another and we might be able to answer some of your questions or point you in the right direction.
The same goes for any and all who are interested in comming out. Our Sketchclub is not exclusive and all are Welcome.
December 5th, 2006, 08:55 PM
I'll be out of town then.... thanks though. Any idea when you'll be getting together again?
December 8th, 2006, 11:44 AM
Sunday Dec 10th at 1pm. Tim Hortons on Blackfoot Trail. We try to make this thing bi-weekly but with Xmas comming up we might be juggling the days. I'll keep you posted on this forum.
February 26th, 2012, 02:29 AM
Hey everyone, necroing this thread. A friend of mine and I have been meeting on Sundays in the afternoon at the central library to do a bit of drawing. If anyone's interested drop a line here or get in contact with me :D
May 29th, 2012, 05:38 PM
Hi everyone, would just like to say the meet up is still going on, have around 4-6 people coming a week now so it's getting larger! :anime:
We usually meet on Friday evenings now and go somewhere around the city center. It changes week to week.
Let me know if you are interested in joining!
July 14th, 2012, 12:33 AM
Just thought I would bump again, still every week xD
August 4th, 2012, 11:14 AM
Hey guys, i remember there was a Weds night sketchgroup a while ago, went a few times. Back in Calgary, now, wondering if there's something like that still going on? Fridays are usually date night with the mrs. so i cant make those with any regularity
