Creating an Urban Sketch Journal
An Interview with Designer Amin Zakaria
Designer Amin Zakaria shares his workflow and impressions on Urban Sketching.
The trick is to imagine that you are physically there, drawing how you feel it, not how you see it.
Amin Zakaria — I have loved to draw since I was young. My father’s constant quick sketches on the whiteboard inspired me. He drew very well despite being in the engineering field. I attended Architectural Design school and am currently working in an Architectural Consultancy office in Malaysia. I try my best to use my spare time to practice my drawing, be it between meetings, during lunch hour and at midnight before I head to sleep. Drawing helps me to meditate.
I’ve learned a lot about urban sketching from my girlfriend who is an urban sketcher, from basic color mixing theory to shadow rendering, workflow and composition, and I experiment with them in my digital sketching.
