In conjunction with the Lunar New Year and the 34th Worldwide Sketchcrawl Day on the 21 January 2012, some of us from the Urban Sketchers Singapore group headed over to Chinatown to capture the festive mood on paper.
And here, I have attempted to capture my sketching process on video, which was entirely shot, edited and posted with an iPhone 4, together with the iMovie application.

Hope you'll like it!
Thank y'all so much for the likes, comments and the follows. I am really humbled.
My parents perform this art (Ebru in Turkish, Paper Marbling in English) and the footage was shot for a promo piece (vimeo.com/22325846) I was working on back then and my dad asked me to put a video together for him. This is what came out of that.
For those who is wondering how it's done I'd recommend googling "Paper Marbling" there is plenty of info out there.
The song is "Charlotte Mittnacht" by DeVotchka

"Sketching has a sense of urgency that I love, the energy, the life that can come out of a sketch amazes me. It’s about spontaneity, enthusiasm, confidence. It’s giving the feeling of a place, the illusion that every element is here."
Stéphane Kardos loves sketching around L.A. He is fascinated by the urban landscape that the city has to offer. The abstract pattern of its electric poles and wires, the road signs and vehicles, the people, the Southern Californian light and colours.... The uniqueness of the city is of constant inspiration to him.
As a sketch artist, Stéphane wants his drawings to capture the essence of the subjects - the loose lines and the casual, quick approach add to creating life in the drawing. He wants to provide a feeling of the location by intentionally not giving all the details away, yet everything is there... Sketching makes him feel at home, and his work radiates the pleasure he obtains from going out and drawing all those scenes that inspire him.
Stéphane shares his amazing talent as he takes us on a personal visual tour of the districts of Silver Lake and Los Feliz.
