Putting lines on paper
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.
