The 'Out of Towner' Guest Correspondents

The focus of this blog is on people who sketch London.  Some of our correspondents sketch London even if they don't live here. 

Our Guest Correspondents are people who sketch London - but don't live here (although some did in the past). Additional Guest Correspondents are
  1. Pete Scully - an original Urban Sketcher - formerly of North London, currently living in Davis, California; 
  2. Julie Oakley - an original Urban Sketcher - lives in Hertfordshire
  3. Les Williams - lives in Norfolk and leads the Bankside Sketching Group
If you are an Urban Sketcher with another Urban Sketchers Group and are visiting London and will be sketching while you are here you can apply to be a Guest Correspondent.

Our Manifesto
We all comply with the Urban Sketchers Manifesto
  1. We draw on location, indoors or out, capturing what we see from direct observation.
  2. Our drawings tell the story of our surroundings, the places we live and where we travel.
  3. Our drawings are a record of time and place.
  4. We are truthful to the scenes we witness.
  5. We use any kind of media and cherish our individual styles.
  6. We support each other and draw together.
  7. We share our drawings online.
  8. We show the world, one drawing at a time.
