Meet the sketcher: FAIRFAX, VA > Guido C. Seoanes Perla

I spent my childhood in the Colombian northern Coastal Caribbean city of Barranquilla. Since I was a kid I was always involved in drawing competitions and in designing many different things. Currently I am a master student of Architecture at the University of Michigan Taubman College and I am planing to work in this wonderful field. I began my architectural education at the University of Washington in Seattle where I was a student of Master Frank Ching who started my passion for urban sketching. Everyone can use a simple camera in order to take a picture of a place and move on without understanding or caring a bout it.....The importance of sketching is that a person can appreciate the details of a place and he or she will began to understand it by just drawing which it helps the individual to preserve the memory for many years to come.

  1. Great description of why drawing isn't the same as taking a photograph of anything.
