Happy New Year!

It's been a wild ride since we started this blog in November. To celebrate it I put together a very quick video. I wish everyone the energy and inspiration to continue drawing the world in 2009. Leave a comment with your wishes for the blog in 2009 if you'd like! An feel free to share the video or run it on your blogs.

Happy New Year!

I wish, in 2009, great drawings (and the time to do it) to all urban sketchers.

I love your site, it's inspirational and refreshing. It's a joy to log on everyday during my break to see what's going on in the world, instead of reading the (somewhat negative) news it's like seeing snippets of happy local news around the globe, real life.
Thank you all for the hard work which touches so many people much further and wider than you probably realise, wishing you happy sketchbooks for 2009.

Shocked and thrilled to see my face on the first shot, Thanks to all the inspiration I receive daily from this site.

I must say, immediately I saw this site I caught a new fire and I wish everyone who has been dreaming of doing some sketches this year to wake up to reality and actually do some solid sketching!!!

And also I will like to see a SOLID HARD COVER BOOK of this Site Titled "URBAN SKETCHERS"- in the bookstores..........anytakers? It would be a worldwide hit, can we do it? YES WE CAN!

Wishing you all a SKETCHABLE NEWYEAR!!!

Gabi you are an inspiration !!!!!!
