This year, the book was sent back to me. I was "re-gifted." Only now, the book was different. The proverbial seed that I had planted, had bloomed beautifully.
Now, I can't guarantee that you'll get the same results, but maybe you all should consider what are the possibilities with those extra sketchbooks lying around your house.
As for this book, I tried to return it. I'm simply not comfortable with generous gifts. But, no luck. Karen insisted that it was for me. She would not take the gift back.
So, I'll forever cherish it and use it as a teaching tool. And I will share it with everyone.
More of Karen Sung's work can be found at her website: http://karenjysung.com. This fall she'll begin working towards her master's degree in visual communication at the Royal College of Art in London. There, she'll continue to focus on urban sketching/journalistic drawing.
