Urban Sketchers sketchbook

I got one of the customised large accordion sketchbooks from the Urban Sketchers organisation. The group logo is on the cover, and there is an insert with a listing of the correspondents and their positions on a world map. The sketchbook was produced for the Portland Symposium this summer - read more about the symposium, the presenters and the participants here: 1st International Urban Sketching Symposium.

I was not able to take part in the Portland Symposium myself, but hope to make the symposium in Lisbon next summer.

My sketching is still at a minimum, but here are a few things I managed to do in my pocket sketchbook since the last post:



Both of these household members took off for Copenhagen today, so I will not be sketching them again for a while.

We harvested some of our blackberries and I made a few jars of blackberry jam.

Hand drawn labels are a must :)

A recipe will be posted on my kitchen blog in the near future.
