Today the Urban Sketchers Flickr Group will exceed 200,000 image mark, with sketches from around the world.The group was created in November of 2007 by Gabi Campanario and set the foundation for the Urban Sketchers blog (Nov. 2008) and a non profit organization dedicated to fostering the art of on-location drawing (Dec. 2009).
Over the past 8 years we have amassed over 8,555 members from every continent and as of today we have 199,900 sketches. With daily sketching submission of about 30-50 we should hit this new plateau by the end of the day or early tomorrow!
USK Flickr is both and entry way for new members as well as an image base for visual storytelling from around the world.
Lets give a little thanks to the volunteers that have helped Over the Past few years to keep things going!
Here are some gems from deep in the archives of USK Flickr! It's a Fun place to dig around!
