Happy fifth birthday Urban Sketchers! Congratulations to everyone who has posted their sketches on here and on the Flickr and Facebook groups and all of the regional blogs over the past five years (six for the Flickr group, of course), and for all the symposia and workshops and sketchcrawls and random meet-ups. I'm really happy that sketching has helped connect the world that little bit more, and here's to many more years of sketching and sharing and inspiring. I though you might like to see this photo I took of my sketchbook five years ago which was used in the header when the blog was first launched. Keep on sketching, planet Earth!
