I just learned today that artist Gabi Campanario, author/artist of Seattle Sketcher Blog,
has started a new blog: Urban Sketchers.  

The blog features great journal drawings from urban sketchers around the world. While the blog isn't officially up until November 1, if you visit now you'll be able to see introductions of the artists involved along with examples of their work and a photo of each artist.

If you like looking in people's journals as much as I do, and if you love seeing people's visual take on their home turf, you are going to love this blog. The art is excellent, inspiring, and quirky in the most diverse and wonderful of ways. The noticed nuances are intriguing. After looking at even a small portion of what is presented here you'll be aching to get out and look with fresh eyes at your own environment. Don't wait until November 1, go and visit now; start enjoying the offerings and get to know the cast of artists Campanario is going to feature.

If you still aren't sated you can visit the artists' various blogs and websites (all linked on Campanario's blog) to see more urban scenes from around the globe. This will be a fun blog to return to regularly.

    Ken, let’s pick a sketch crawl day and get some people together. There is also the draw out day or something that they started in England that I think is in June. I’ll find out more info and try to get something going!

    Totally, Roz. Minneapolis is not represented on the Urban Sketcher blog.

    The sketches on those blogs are inspiring…. I could look at them all day.

    Gabi Campanario solves the problem of cars getting in the way by making them invisible (only the outlines)… that is brilliant!!!

    Thanks again, Roz!!!
