The title of this post comes from the subject line of an e-mail I received yesterday from my sketcher friend Teresa Lawson in Port Townsend, WA. Her excitement about The Art of Urban Sketching makes me realize that it was all worth the effort!

I hope the book will inspire many artists like Teresa to keep sketching their cities and motivate others to get started. A huge thank you goes to all the urban sketchers who contributed and trusted me with their words and pictures, and to my one-of-a-kind spouse and family for the support, encouragement and all those hours spent downloading and cataloguing tiff files so I could spend more time curating the content.

If you pick up a copy and like it, consider leaving your feedback on the Amazon page so others can learn more about the book.

Happy urban sketching, folks!
