Urban Sketches – Kampung Glam


We had some fun a few weeks back walking around Kampung Glam looking for nice places to sketch. It was HY’s birthday and along with rollerblading she suggested that we walk around Singapore and do some sketching.

It’s been ages since I put pen to sketchbook so what was supposed to be a birthday present to her ended up being a wonderful treat for me too.

It’s fortunate that a lot of shop houses in Singapore have been conserved as they are some of the most fun buildings to draw. Here’s one at Jalan Kubor:

Despite the hot weather we managed to find a nice shaded spot in each location to sit and draw for a while.

I had great fun shading my drawings with HY’s set of markers. They really make the drawings POP!

Can’t wait to do this again.
