Literary Distractions

The books almost distracted us from sketching! Some of us barely made it out of the store alive – “can we have everything in here?”.

This morning, we were welcomed into Da Shop, a recently opened bookstore in Kaimukī. To start us off, Emily introduced us to the store, Bess Press (publisher of the “Pidgin to da Max” books), and the warehouse behind the store. Then sketchers fanned out to draw the surrounding bookshelves, the shipping pallets in back, and the neighborhood. Show and tell quickly diffused into looking over the well curated selection of books.

Thank you to Emily and everyone at Da Shop for being such wonderful hosts and community members!

As always, don’t forget to check out our sketches on Flickr and upload your own!

Make sure to stay tuned for our next event!
