Meet the correspondent: Chris Haldane > Sydney, Australia

Drawing has always fascinated me. If my family couldn’t find me when I was a little girl, all they had to do was go to the bookshelf, and there I’d be, drawing in their books! Following a career in teaching, I’ve recently completed tertiary studies in art and am reveling in the time I now […]

Meet the correspondent: T.K. Justin Ng > Hong Kong

I am an architecture student and I record and share my life and travels through my sketches. I started sketching on location in 2013 and I have since fallen in love with it. Through each drawing, I observe, distill, and record the places I visit. This allows me to gain a far deeper understanding of […]

认识记者。Fred Baele > 津巴布韦哈拉雷

My name is Fred. I have found peace in drawing for as long as I can remember. Some years ago, when I started working, I stopped drawing regularly, then altogether. I had many excuses: kids, responsibilities, things… but I just really lost something within myself. I only started back sometime in 2012. All this to […]

Meet the Correspondent: Peggy Wong > Kuching, Malaysia

Trained as an architect, I have an innate passion for the built environment. I started sketching as a form of observation and documenting the disappearing architecture of our past, in my hometown Kuching, on the island of Borneo. I keep a sketch journal to document daily things, travel stories and design ideas. Kuching, Old Town […]

与通讯员见面:贝莉莎-门德斯 > 卢森堡

I live in Luxembourg, one of the smallest countries of the world, lost between its big neighbours, France, Belgium and Germany. In our corner of Europe it is easy to be overlooked and even people driving through might miss the fact that they have been here. It is, however, a beautiful country rich in history […]

认识记者。理查德-谢泼德 > 索诺玛县酒乡

“In the 1980s, I earned a B.A. in Studio Art at Arizona State University. After relocating to San Francisco, I studied illustration at the Academy of Art University, under Barbara Bradley, Barron Storey, and Howard Brodie. At the Academy, sketchbooks were required and it was there that I began plein air sketching. Sketching in public […]

“The dictionary says that a hobby is “an activity or interest pursued for pleasure or relaxation.” Although urban sketching certainly provides both pleasure and relaxation, I don’t think of it as my hobby. I think of it more as a way of life – something that has become such a normal part of my everydayness […]

Jeroen Janssen

At kindergarten I appeared to be no good for much except drawing. I studied graphic arts at Sint-Lucas in Ghent, and later taught in the art school in Nyundo, Rwanda. I publish graphic novels and short stories, and work for magazines, such as Zone 5300 (NL), Mo* (B) and XXI (F). I am currently working […]
