Sketchercises - exercise for the mind through the activity of drawing. A collection of over 300 sketches from around the central boroughs of London. Including landmarks, Londoners and pigeons.
Following a six year drought from sketching after studying art at university, I decided early in 2012 to try and get back into it. However I soon discovered that like an unused muscle, my sketching ability was much weaker than it had once been. Thus followed many hours of sketching, seeing, staring, studying, meditating, eating, drinking, shivering, sweating, walking, driving, tube-ing, caffeinating, rehydrating, aching, stretching, pondering, nibbling, leaning, learning and meeting a lot of good, like-minded people.
The collection of sketches in this book are the result of all these ing’s.
