"The Art of Urban Sketching" hits Singapore bookstores

"The Art of Urban Sketching" isn't officially out until February, but in Singapore, the city where it's being printed, some sketchers have already gotten their hands on it!

Teoh Yi Chie (pictured left) says in his blog that he got the last copy on the shelf at Basheer bookstore. According to comments on the USK Singapore Facebook group, the bookstore sold out all the 85 copies they had and will refill the shelves as soon as they can.

Teoh Yi Chie is an sketcher and art blogger who reviews art and design books on his site, Parka Blogs. I was thrilled to read his positive review of The Art of Urban Sketching. He also posted this cool video where you can get a feel for those 320-pages of sketching goodness.

    This video really captures that sense of the book being like a journey around the world. I like that sense of travel and adventure.
    I can't wait to hold it in my hands.
