What is the "World Wide SketchCrawl"?
The world's creatives are invited to spend the day sketching and then posting their efforts on the WW SketchCrawl site.
In short, roughly every 3 months they put a call out to people around the world to join in, put pen to paper on a given day for as long as they can (be it 20 minutes or 8 hours) drawing, sketching, journaling about their day and what's around them. For a day, slow down, look around you, see ... and draw or write. Record your day. No specific level of skill is expected ! Anyone is welcome.

AIGA supports design professionals, educators, and students at whatever stage they are in their careers. The association spans the many varied branches of the profession: from book design, typography, and other types of traditional communication design to newer disciplines such as interaction design and experience design.
AIGA has become a forum for design professionals to exchange ideas and information, participate in critical analysis and research, and advance education and ethical practice.
When you become a member of AIGA Seattle, you join forces with nearly 700 designers across the state of Washington and 20,000 designers nationwide. AIGA Seattle unites designers from all disciplines and areas, from the tech-focused Puget Sound area to the Design for Democracy campaign in Olympia.
