Urban Sketching workshop at Gustavo Gili's headquarters

Gustavo Gili is a publishing house specialized in books on architecture, art and design. In his catalog are you can find all the books of fellow sketcher Frank Ching edited for Spain and Latin America, alongside names like Bruno Munari, Ernst Neufert, Saul Bass, Otl Aicher, Aldo Rossi, Milton Glaser, Rem Koolhaas or Keith Haring. On December 14 they organised an urban sketching workshop given by Swasky and your sincerely. The place was obviously Gustavo Gili's headquarters, a very particular building designed by Joaquim Gili and Francesc Bassó which was FAD Architecture Prize in 1961. Inscription included catering and beer, so it was a really a great sketching day. I took it slowly and did just one drawing.

I do enjoy the subtle colours of this drawing - and the delicate sky.
