How can I participate?
You can start participating in the Urban Sketchers community right away by joining our flickr group, where you can share your location drawings, exchange comments and participate in discussions with fellow sketchers from around the world. Flickr is the image-sharing social network where Urban Sketchers started in November of 2007. For more information about flickr, read their FAQ page.
If you are on Facebook, you can also participate at http://www.facebook.com/groups/urbansketchers/
To participate on this blog, you have to be invited as a correspondent. Many of our current correspondents were invited after we discovered them on flickr.
How do I become a blog correspondent?
Correspondents are invited based on the quality of their work, style, originality, geographic location and overall skills as visual storytellers. The goal is to make the blog as diverse as possible in terms of geography and style.
Correspondents come from all corners of the world and have diverse backgrounds, from painting, architecture, journalism, advertising, illustration, graphic design or teaching. Some are veteran published authors, others are young illustrators. All of them share the same passion for drawing on location.
Being a correspondent means a strong involvement in our community of sketchers, posting to the blog regularly —a minimum of once a month— and offering feedback to fellow sketchers on the blog and Flickr. Correspondents not only add individual drawings to the blog but also narrative explaining the circumstances in which the sketch was done or a particular story behind it.
How do I become a member?
Membership is open to anybody who draws on location and can show a regularly updated body of work online.
To become a member, follow the instrutions on the membership page.
