So, last night was the #drinkanddraw event cohosted by the Functional Nerds, Andy Romine and Galen Dara.  The concept was simple, and I was willing and eager to participate.  I have been known to doodle when out with friends (or I make paper airplanes), so this event really appealed to me.

When I started, I was using SketchBook Express, a free app available on the Mac App store.  I installed that on the laptop and started drawing.  It was a lot of fun, but odd using the trackpad to draw.  Sort of like finger painting.  Eventually, I switched to paper and pencil for a little more control over what I was doodling.

Anyway, here is what I was able to do:

Name that Epic Fantasy Book Cover!

Radaghast the Brown?

This is possibly my favorite of the night – I call it Number 10:

These are just the things I drew, I suggest you check out the #drinkanddraw hashtag on Twitter to see all the fantastic things people drew.

    I regret my computer woes did not allow me to participate.

    On the other hand, knock wood, I think I may have solved the problem.
