GNSI-DC: Holiday Gathering

GNSI-DC had a wonderful send-off for 2012 with a well-attended holiday gathering at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History on Dec. 18th.

It was a pleasure to see old friends, and new faces interested in Science Illustration.  
Attendees brought friends and family to join in the fun.


After an hour and a half of eating, drinking, conversation, and portfolio viewing (we could have gone on much longer!) we got down to the important business of stealing presents...

The Thieves Christmas game has found its way into our traditions in DC (thanks to David Clarke!). Everyone who wants to participate brings a white elephant wrapped for the present table. We all draw a number and take turns opening a present from the table, or even better, taking a present already opened by someone else that seems like a better option than what remains in the mysterious packages. The problem is that we GNSI folk are just too polite to be taking things from others, but believe me, the fun does not begin until they do. Here is a QuickTime movie of still images taken at the event for your enjoyment.
