Virtual Sketch-A-Thon

EYP Sketchers is a weekly Virtual Friday Happy Hour series. Artists from EYP offices across the country gather to sketch a selected image, usually of a travel scene shared within the group. The hour of sketching has become a relaxing bookend to the week where everyone gathers, kicks back, shares stories and practices drawing skills. Each sketcher has their own style and are constantly developing in an environment encouraging experimentation with different medium and techniques. Check out some of our Sketchers’ work!

Nailed It

Inspired by Netflix's 'Nailed It' we recently held a baking competition in our Houston, Denver, and Dallas offices. Entrants were given two weeks to choose a dessert to recreate, gather baking supplies, bake, and send in their photos. Desserts were presented during a virtual happy hour gathering with all three offices. Another way we're 'staying together apart' .
