Schlolsskirche, Cottbus

I recently started studying Urban Design at the Brandenburg Technical University based in a small and quaint town of Cottbus, around an hour from Berlin. I am keeping open and sucking in the experience. A few days back I finally had the chance to pick up my sketchbook and explore the city. Here is what I drew;

This sketch if of Schlolsskirche (the castle church), which as the name suggests was a church, which was converted to a Synagogue last year. This conversion is the first in the state of Brandenburg since 1938. It gives me goosebumps to see structures that have witnessed history.

You can read more about the church/now synagogue here. More sketches to follow.

Brown : People and Places I

A dear friend of mine recently gifted me a sketchbook she bought from Indonesia. Now since the two most popular things in Indonesia are the cinnamon cigarettes and batik, it seemed normal for them to wrap the sketchbook in beautiful batik print. The sketchbook has brown recycled paper, which makes it even more interesting to use. The rough grains of the paper make it an apt medium to sketch on with a pencil. Though, I am uploading a few sketches I made with my pen recently. There are more sketches which I will upload eventually.

Sketching Workshop with Sebastian Loerscher

A week back, our office (MOD Institute) in collaboration with NextHamburg and Goethe Institut, Bangalore organized a crowd sourcing exhibition NextBangalore Gatishil for the citizens of Bangalore. A part of the exhibition was a week long sketching workshop for the citizens of Bangalore. The workshop was conducted by Sebastian Loerscher, a very able illustrator and an awesome friend. This workshop comes after three years of his book "Making Friends in Bangalore", which he produced the first time he was in Bangalore.

Without talking about it further, here are some pictures from the workshop, followed by my sketches done during the workshop. Enjoy!

Thank you Sebastian, for being a lovely friend!


A Day in Mumbai; Like Always

Me and Mumbai have a bit of a history. My stay in Mumbai has never exceeded a day in that beautiful city and never has it invited me to stay further. This time as well, I was there over a weekend, meeting friends. We went to J.J. College of Arts & Architecture in our free time where I sketched a little. Here is one. Regards.

One Minute One Sketch

Following the advice given by one of the more mature sketchers on the Urban Sketchers (*.org) blog, I set out making sketches while not giving each one more than one minute. I also experimented on people which I hardly draw. The exercise was enriching and felt really free. Plan to keep repeating this. Plus I ended up with so many sketches!!
