Sharing a recent sketch I made at True Blue. This is the1st time I documented my process of thinking and drawing. Always remember to tell your visual story with a strong focus. Let your lines meander and colours dance.
I had the good fortune to sketch with Liz Steel on new year's eve (left) and again on New Year's day (right) here in Singapore. We met on 31st Dec 2012 did the touristy thing and went to explore the famous Raffles Hotel. We eventually found a nice cozy corner in the hotel's cafe to drink tea/coffee and sketch.
As you can see, our sketching often revolves around food and drinks here in Singapore. We really love our food. I think we managed to show Liz our unique Singaporean hospitality and definitely fatten her with lots and lots of food during her 2 weeks here. I really enjoyed sketching with Liz and getting inspired by her. See more of Liz in action here.

I was really excited when Liz said she wanted to spend 2 weeks in Singapore over christmas and new year. She first time in Asia and we were thrilled to have her sketch along side Urbansketchers from Singapore. Our very first ad-hoc sketchwalk with Liz was held at Tiong Bahru. TIA kindly organised this morning sketchwalk and invited everyone to join in. My warm-up sketch at Tiong Bahru My 2nd sketch with Liz. We hid ourselves next to a substation and sketched the rear of old walk-up apartments.
Last Decemeber, I had the privilege again to conduct my 2nd Urbansketching workshop with my students from Singapore Internation school in Hong Kong. We spent 12 hours spread over 3 days observing, drawing and seeing old Hong Kong together. Below are some of my sketches made prior and during the workshop. Aberdeen Harbour Peel Street revisited
