Sketching. It’s a natural extension of my storytelling, another way to engage an audience and get the word out.
I’ve been sketching for three years, mainly as a keen urban sketcher, and have now decided to add this medium to my repertoire: photographer, writer, blogger, sketcher. Phew.
Reportage sketching is enjoying a resurgence just now and is being used by clients looking for something unusual that will stand out. For me it’s a great opportunity to spend time with people, listening to their views that often get incorporated into the work. Being sketched, for some subjects, can be less daunting – and more fun – than being photographed.
