Urban Sketchers is a network of artists around the world who draw the cities where they live and travel to. There is this blog, which is by invitation, a Flickr group, where anyone can share their location drawings, and a Google group to stay connected and foster discussion. USk was started on Flickr by Seattle journalist and illustrator Gabi Campanario in November of 2007. The blog was launched in November of 2008.
Six continents are represented by members. To become a member of the Urban Sketchers network, email a link to your urban sketches (blog tag or flickr set) and they'll be added to the list. Note: That will not make your drawings show on the blog but they'll keep a close eye on your work as they look for new correspondents. Send an email with your name, city and URL to urbansketchers at gmail dot com to join.
