Howard House Gallery Opening 2009, remembered

Ah, another terrible, wonderful year past. Why, only yesterday it seems as though our fine club was putting on a glorious show at the Howard House gallery, an event you may have seen advertised on this very blog. While that may have been mere weeks ago, let's remember that fantastic night by looking over a sample of the drawings produced by club members and associates at the opening for the entertainment of the First Thursday Art-Walk patrons.

A fox by Scott Faulkner.


fotn-vanb-howardhouse
A pretty fellow by yours truly (an attempt to balance the welcome abundance of pretty ladies featured in the show)


fotn-morris2-howard house
Tea time by someone, probably Jon Morris


fotn-morris1-howardhouse
Definitely by Jon Morris


fotn-jam2-howardhouse
A jam comic with contributions from a mess of Nibsters. Nice ending by Dalton.


fotn-jam1-howardhouse
Jam comic by various Nibsters. A beautiful first panel by Max Clotfelter, but then a terrible cop-out ending for which I apologize.



fotn-doe2-howardhouse
Some unsigned drawings.


fotn-webb-howardhouse
A drawing by Dalton Webb


fotn-doe1-howardhouse
An unsigned but super-cute boar-hedgehog-thing.

And that's the whole of my souvenirs from that memorable evening! I hope you can join us at our next event, and that your 2009 was thrilling and picturesque. On to 2010!

I missed the HH show. Thanks for posting this. Is FotN still meeting weekly? If so, where? If not, why not?

I did the fox in my brief time there. I would have loved to hang out more but my girl was starving so dinner was a must. Congratulations one and all on a great show!

Bryan, Friends of the Nib meet each Wednesday, usually, at Cafe Racer in the University District. We gather around 6:30, in the back room, where there is better light. Don't tell anyone it is all a secret. Well, not anymore.

Scott, your fox is much friendlier looking here in my room now that I know where he came from.

Wow, I contributed to those jams .. I am so used to never seeing jam pages after an event, so it's great to see them again .. er, even if my stuff is pale next to the rest of the contrib.s.

Some really fun ink drawings here! Hi people, I was told about the Friends of the Nib from a girl I met in Linda's and she told me to check it out. I was wondering if it'd be cool for my bf and I to come and meet you guys? We moved into Seattle about half a year ago and would love to be part of something creative. I'm an illustrator and he's a 3d environment artist for games.
