on the way to santo domingo
I was selected to be the official correspondent from the 3rd international urban sketching symposium next 12, 13 and 14 of july.
here an extract from the press release:
"Lapin was selected by the Urban Sketchers board of directors from a total of 33 candidates who submitted applications. Regular contributors of Urban Sketchers blogs were eligible for this award, which covers round trip airfare and accommodation for the winning candidate.
The Symposium Correspondent is expected to document the Symposium experience in sketches and share regular reports of the event at the urbansketchers.org and the Symposium blog site.
Upon receiving the news, Lapin said he was already dancing the Merengue to celebrate such an opportunity. “I’m so honoured to be the eyes of the Urban Sketchers blog readers, telling them through my sketches all that will happen during the three intense days of the Symposium,” he said.
Lapin has been a regular contributor of the Urban Sketchers online community from its very beginning. In November of 2008, he inaugurated the Urban Sketchers group blog with a sketch of Barcelona’s Casa Batlló. Since then, he has published more than 200 entries with over a thousand sketches drawn in Barcelona and other cities around the world such as Tokyo, Istanbul, Paris and New York. Lapin also served as a board member of the Urban Sketchers nonprofit from its launch in 2009 until 2011, when he decided to step aside to meet the new demands of being a father. He was also an instructor at the 2010 Symposium in Portland, Oregon."
I'm leaving tomorrow morning, I can't wait to meet urban sketchers and friends there!
