Whether it’s social media, podcasts, books, magazines, or just sitting outside, there is a wealth of inspiration for Urban Sketchers.
I’m always inspired by watching USkTalks Live on Instagram. The broadcast was just recently moved to every Saturday at 6pm which is convenient for us in Hawaii.
This past Saturday featured Gabriel Campanario, founder of Urban Sketchers and the author of “The Art of Urban Sketching.” Gabriel (Gabi) is also a Staff Artist/Writer of Seattle Times.
Not only did I learn a lot about sketching and storytelling, I also learn about cool places to visit in Seattle. Gabi challenged fellow urban sketchers to let your sketches “Tell a story”.
Using Mililani as my subject, I took a short walk to the top of Meheula Parkway early in the morning. Not much cars on the road, but there were joggers and walkers taking advantage of the breezy, nice day.
The journalist in me wants to start a series of sketches of Mililani to tell a story. Here is my first one.
Look around your neighborhood. What story can you tell about your community or places you love?
