“What’s all this about?” asks the young woman sitting opposite Paul Wang and I as we start to draw outside The Peveril of the Peak pub on Tuesday evening.
“It’s a convention of urban sketchers,” I explain, digging out a spare book and pen. “People from around the world have descended on Manchester this week to draw. Do you draw?”
Before long Alana is drawing with the rest of us and gets included in my sketch. “I only popped in for a quick drink,” she says. “I’m actually on my way to York [an hour and half away].”
When she returns my book and eventually heads back to the train station I notice she’s signed her sketch ‘honorary member’. Brilliant.
Show the world, one drawing at a time. Convert the world, one sketcher at a time.
