Hello fellow sketchers, greetings from Israel! One month left until the USk Symposium starts, and I can’t wait to meet you all in Barcelona!
Two years ago I've participated in 2nd Symposium in Lisbon, and came back totally overwhelmed by its wonderful experience. Sketching among more than 200 sketchers from all over the world, finally meeting in person people behind the sketches, exploring together the beautiful city of Lisbon, chatting & eating together, switching tools & sketchbooks and, again, sketching, sketching and sketching...I feel privileged and very excited to be one of instructors at coming Symposium, and together with Ea Ejersbo, look forward to sharing our approach to sketching. At our workshop we’ll focus on looking for stories in everyday situations by opening our eyes wider, finding our heroes, trying to figure different ways to tell stories though our sketches and, maybe the most important, on enjoying the process!
Sketching for me is first of all a way to enjoy the pleasure of drawing for its own sake and a very fun way to go to a journey every day without getting far. It’s great to sketch in exotic spots, but finding stories in everyday places and situations – that’s what I love most about it!
Here some sketches from the place I live – maybe general views are very different, but we also have beaches:
and people enjoying themselves in coffee shops:
I can’t wait sketching beautiful and effervescent Barcelona together with you all! See you soon!
