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.
