Portland sketches

Urban Sketchers Symposium: Portland, OR USA - Correspondents

I finally managed to post some of my sketches from Portland! It was such an amazing experience to spend time with other sketchers, meet some of the fellow correspondents in real life, and explore the city. This was also an opportunity to try new materials thanks to our sponsors - I tried my hand at accordion-fold Moleskine: to be honest, I favor the watercolor papers a lot more, and I was struggling with this paper until I discovered that Faber-Castell Pitt pen glides well on its smooth surface. I did a line drawing of panoramic views I've seen from the riverfront, and did small portraits of fellow sketchers at dinner in the space underneath it: I was able to capture glimpses of Gerard, Ronnie, Kumi, Tia, Jason, Gabi, Frank, Matt, Lapin, and Isabel. More of my sketches are collected in my blog here.


  1. It was nice meeting you Shiho and thanks a lot for your help in many occasion. These portraits on the Moleskine is surely a nice memory and souvenir!

  2. Love this panoramic Shiho! And it was fun to see your other drawings on your blog. So nice meeting you and I hope I have the chance to see you again soon.
