  • The Art of Urban Sketching is both a comprehensive guide and a showcase of location drawings by artists around the
    world who draw the cities where they live and travel. Authored by the founder of the nonprofit organization Urban
    Sketchers (www.urbansketchers.org), this beautiful, 320-page volume explains urban sketching within the context of a
    long historical tradition and how it is being practiced today. With profiles of leading practitioners and discussions of
    the benefits of working in this art form, this inspiring book shows how one can participate and experience this creative
    outlet through modern-day social networks and online activity. You'll find more than 600 beautiful, contemporary
    illustrations, as well as artists' profiles and extended captions where these urban sketchers share their stories, how
    they work, sketching tips, and the tools behind each drawing. With sketches and observations from more than 50 cities in
    more than 30 countries, The Art of Urban Sketching offers a visually arresting, storytelling take on urban life from
    different cultures and artistic styles, as well as insight into various drawing techniques and mediums.
