The editor of the magazine accidentally left out the captions which I provided, so I explain my choices. I like the sleeping man for its spare lines that were captured quickly as he slept after his in-flight meal. The Kim Joo piece is a culmination of my running with sketching and my favourite ritual of breakfast with Sam in my favourite part of town. Brunelleschi's Dome records a memory of our first trip to Italy flavoured with an expresso wash while the sketch of downtown Pratunam recalls our office trip and colouring-in on the floor of the Bangkok Airport.
The last one was done on board a flight back from Penang, I chose it to demonstrate the frugality of sketching - putting lines down with a hotel pen on the back of the air-sick bag. No need for posh pens and fancy paper.

I remember the name of this piazza from architecture history lessons with Nick Beattie at Deakin University - photos of Brunelleschi's Ospedale degli Innocenti flanking it with its famous loggia.
On a sunny September afternoon, I sat on the steps of that very loggia and sketched this view with pigeons and sunshine to keep me company.

While 'cruising' the Main river, I spotted a picture of what I thought was a duck on the roof of a building. Sam thought that it looked more like a rabbit. As it turned out, we were both right as this is a cartoon version of Ludwig Wittgenstein's duck-rabbit which illustrates the ambiguity of seeing.
