Southern Exposure’s Monster Drawing Rally

Southern Exposure (aka SOEX) is hosting the 2011 Monster Drawing Rally this Friday, February 25!

As I’ve mentioned, I’m such a doodler at heart. Drawing is not only cathartic but an opening to the imagination. Oh, where a line can take you. Now, for as low as $10, you can visit the Verdi Club in San Francisco’s Potrero Hill district and witness many of the Bay Area’s finest draftsmen and women draw their hearts out right in front of a live audience. If you’re not doing anything and want to help SOEX raise much-needed funds to keep their programs and gallery going, you will want to bring yourself and some friends to a night full of drawing and making new friends. You will LOVE it!
