Urban Sketchers: See a city through a local artist’s eyes

If you’re anything like me, before an extended trip, you comb the internet for words and images about your destination. It was on one such surfing expedition that I came across Urban Sketchers, a wonderful collaborative blog of international artists who sketch scenes from their home towns.

Participation in the blog is by invitation only; the result are some of the most beautiful, personal sketches from the perspective of locals from around the world. Six of the seven continents are represented on the blog, with more added all the time.

Be sure to check the site out. It’s become one of my daily addictions.
