The Book – London by Urban Sketchers

Experience London’s vibrancy through diverse perspectives, inspiring a fresh view of our beloved city.

Celebrate a decade of Urban Sketchers London with our commemorative book, a stunning visual journey through the heart of the city. Featuring over 100 sketches by talented urban sketchers from around the UK and across the globe, this book encapsulates the essence of London in every stroke.

From iconic tourist landmarks to hidden backstreets and quiet suburbs, immerse yourself in the diversity of London’s landscape. Experience the hustle and bustle of the Tube, the tranquility of its green spaces, and the ever-changing urban fabric captured in pen and ink, watercolors, mixed media, and digital art.

Delve into London’s rich history and modernity, explore its vibrant cultural scene with museums and galleries, unwind in cozy pubs and cafes, and witness the city’s dynamic spirit through demonstrations and construction sites. Our sketches also touch upon pressing issues such as the challenges of homelessness and knife crime, reflecting the multifaceted nature of London life.

The stories behind these drawings are as captivating as the images themselves. Drawing on the street is not just about capturing scenes but also about forging connections—with fellow sketchers, with passers-by who stop to chat, and with the city itself. It’s a testament to the power of art to bring people together and to tell stories that resonate.

Our selection process was meticulous, aiming to showcase the breadth and depth of London’s allure. While we couldn’t include every submission, each chosen sketch offers a unique perspective on the city, inspiring us to see London with fresh eyes.

We’re grateful for the generous support of Da Vinci, Derwent, and Hahnemühle, whose sponsorship helped bring this book to life.
