Giving a talk to the Society of Graphic Fine Artists

I was recently invited by Lyndsey Smith and Les Williams to give a short talk at the Society of Graphic Fine Artists (SGFA) AGM. The venue was the Conway Hall, situated in the corner of Red Lion Square and my topic was Urban Sketchers (USk).

I showed a PowerPoint presentation which featured some of my sketches and work by some of the international USk community. There was also a short video showing Gabi Campanario, the USk founder, at work on the streets of Seattle. I took along some of my own sketchbooks too, plus artists books which I have collected over the past few years.

The SGFA have been going for over one hundred years and value drawing, so it was an honour to be asked to come along and speak. It seemed to go well, with interesting questions and discussion at the end.

The SGFA hold regular exhibitions and drawing events and you can find out more on their website -

I had a chance to peek into some of the SGFA members sketchbooks too!
