Rakan Muda - Sketching Workshop

USk Kuching was invited by Rakan Muda, under the Ministry of Youth and Sports, to host a sketching workshop at UNIMAS.  We had fun sharing what urban sketching is about and had some participants and visitors tried urban sketching for the first time.  It was a fun afternoon for us and hopefully for everyone else.

Sketching at ChinaHouse at the old Courthouse

ChinaHouse from Penang recently opened up in Kuching at the historic Kuching Old Courthouse Complex.  It is quite nice to see the place coming alive with people and activities.

Sketchcrawl - April 2016

Good-bye Star Cineplex!

Star Cineplex reminded us of Old Rex Cinema, where this multi-storey carpark called Medan Pelita now sits.  It was on the top floor Medan Pelita, with fantastic view, where I have already done multiple aerial views of Kuching from its balcony.

April will be Star Cineplex's last operating month before closing for good.  So with the permission from the cinema operators, we recorded their scenes and memories.

Sketchcrawl - March 2016

Kenyalang Park is one of the oldest neighbourhood in Kuching.  For March we went and relive our childhood memories in one of their neighbourhood green lungs which has a concrete dinosaur that most of us remember climbing up on.
