Mike Yoshiaki Daikubara
Everyone wishes they could sketch stylish scenes, but busy lives leave almost no room for sitting down with a pad and pen to practicing. Many people give up on their potential hobby (and artistic outlet) because they feel they just don’t have the time to lay the groundwork. Here’s a secret though: you do! All you is a strategy for incorporate sketching into your daily life.
Sketch Now, Think Later covers the tools, techniques and tips that author and Urban Sketching Correspondent of Boston Mike Daikubara has developed in his more than 15 years as a practicing artist, and will show you how to fully dive into any sketching situation with limited time and tools, and still be able to produce memorable, great looking, fun sketches!
The author of two books in The Urban Sketching Handbooks series—Sketch Now, Think Later and Color First, Ink Later—Mike Daikubara began carrying a sketchbook in 2000 so he could communicate better and faster at his design day job. Now he sketches daily to see, understand, and enjoy! A Japanese-American, Mike grew up between Tokyo and New York City, attending an international school with kids from all over the world. He currently lives in Charlotte, North Carolina.
