Gabi Campanario of Urban Sketchers just posted an image of the Público newspaper in Portugal with an article about the Urban Sketchers blog and network, dated January 9. Lo and behold, the image in the right column, second from the top, is one I had posted on flickr. I had also blogged about this sketch here a few weeks ago. It just happened to be an old sketch I felt like putting online ... and a couple days after that it was in print in Portugal. Crazy!
I teach architecture at the University of Idaho - design studios, architectural graphics courses, and a professional practice course. One of my passions outside of teaching ... and music, and plants, and mycology, and ... is observing and understanding the world through sketching with various media, such as pencil, pen, charcoal and watercolor. Passing along the same skill and interest to students is a goal I've pursued through my teaching here in Moscow, Idaho, and through an 8-week study-abroad program in Rome each summer.
