Santiago de Compostela sketch, originally uploaded by mc_bds. John Hedjuk, the architect of this building, was a very poetic and even mystical architect / theorist / and teacher who taught at schools in Texas (Austin) and New York (Cooper Union). He wrote a few books – including “Mask of Medusa” which are really stunning works of art in themselves.

I achieved last week my biggest sketchbook (horizontal A4) that I started 4 years ago… and that I used a lot this last year participating to urban sketchers. to celebrate it, I prepared a short selection of the best pages, I hope you will enjoy it! blogged by lapin
I also walked to Santiago. It was a great experience arriving from a narrow, climbing alley and suddenly discovering the huge, beautiful cathedral on the turn of the street. More drawings of this walk on my blog.
with one day late, I wish a happy first anniversary to this great community, and to all its readers!!! I’m glad to be part of that project and wish many more anniversaries to celebrate together. cheers!
Here are the drawings I made in my week’s holiday in nort Spain. Santiago de Compostela, Oviedo, Bilbao and San Sebastian are beautiful cities and preserving their architectural and artistic heritage. I loved the visit. Now, I am moving house, city (south to the nort of the country) and changing workplace. I am enjoying the change but it is very stressful so much at the same time … unfortunately, the sketches have had to wait. I hope to draw ‘my’ new city soon, when everything is more organized! However, I continue to delight me with their beautiful sketches published on this Blog 🙂
