An attempt at Urban Sketching

Exactly 2 years ago, I was beginning to rekindle my love for illustration, so I had an idea of going to my beloved Binondo to take a stab at urban sketching.

The day ended with 5 to 6 pages worth of decent doodles and a stomach filled with dim sum. Sadly, it was also the last time I had the courage to sit down and put on paper the world that was right in front of me. People would often ask why I don’t sketch during my trips and I just respond with a smile and say it’s not my thang.

Since I have another big journey up ahead, I’m thinking I should have another go at it. I should, definitely. This time around I know myself more than I did back in 2015. What have I got to lose?

A little socially awkward and always a late bloomer, I prefer spending my weekends getting high on top of a mountain peak, soaking my feet into saltwater, savoring the best flavors of local food, getting lost within the inner streets of historical cities, and documenting everything in photographs. But most of the time I chill inside cozy coffee shops or laze on my bed.
