Aloha fellow sketchers!
Mahalo nui for participating in our survey! It appears that a clear majority is in favor of returning to in-person events: 79% (11/14) feel comfortable or very comfortable to do so. Several of you also mentioned a preference for outdoor events, and we could not agree more – in particular now that some outdoor areas are less crowded.
We are still considering options for July’s events – stay tuned for details!

This Saturday’s suggested theme: “Quick, before it’s gone!”
Tomorrow’s suggested sketch theme is “hidden”. Is your cat hiding under the table, but you see a tail or paw sticking out? Do you see something peeking out between the trees?
Or, sketch anything your heart desires – well, as long as it’s still “urban sketching”. Still lifes are fun, but don’t count! :)
Last month, I graduated from UH Mānoa. I decided to sketch myself in the mirror wearing my graduation outfit. Darn, self portraits are so tricky! My head is more triangular and oblong than what I drew – I need some practice. Oh well, here’s some handsome guy who graduated – looks like he’s wearing my outfit. :)
Now, it’s on to the next phase of life: finding employment during tough times and exploring new things!
Tomorrow’s suggested theme is “together”. Get creative, but remember that we’re Urban Sketchers, so sketch what you see. :)
Our suggested theme for this Saturday’s event is “motion”. Give it a whirl!
Our suggestion for this week’s Saturday sketch is a little different… Try to find a shape!
Keyword: “pointy”. Norfolk pine? Picket fence? Your pencil set? Look around and share with us in your sketch what you find!
Our suggested theme for this Saturday: double vision. Sketch two views of the same scene.
Our first virtual sketch event in May is coming up this weekend! If you are running out of ideas and would like a theme to focus on, let’s try “transportation”. It’s not mandatory though. “See” you this weekend!
