Sketchy Saturday |038


This week’s Sketchy Saturday top 10. Welcome to the internet’s biggest melting pot of sketchy talent. Each week you guys send us in your best handy work and the LA Team go through it, carefully selecting who should make it into the top 10. It’s no easy task, for two main reasons; one it’s hard to establish a criteria for selection when there are such a diversity of styles on display. Secondly a lot of you are so enthusiastic about Sketchy Saturday that you send in several sketches and as a Sketchy Saturday policy we only select a maximum of one sketch per artist to be featured, this does make things fair but it also means a lot if incredible work does not get featured. Enjoy this week’s Sketchy Saturday top 10! 10. by Kyle Schellhorn, Student at Iowa State University, United States

“On a field day, while studying abroad in Rome, Italy, my classmates and I visited Campo Ciesto. Campo Ciesto is an overwhelming cemetery with lush vegetation. After taking some time to get acquainted with this fascinating place, we were suggested to sketch a collage of what caught our eye. In this case, it was the diagonal walking paths against the personable headstone that caught my eye. Every headstone had a story to tell that could not be read through a photo”. 9. by Eric Arneson, BFA student of Landscape Architecture at the Academy of Art in San Francisco, CA, USA

“This sketch was an experiential montage to aid in the development and execution of a final photoshopped presentation image. A very quick and relaxed drawing helps express the design with minimal time invested”. 8. by Pete Bonette

“The drawing was created to show a client how to complement the architecture of their home through a new planting design. The private residence is of a contemporary style of architecture and called for a contemporary planting design. The use of a stacked Pennsylvania Fieldstone boulder fountain draws the material from the façade into the landscape. This drawing was created on trace paper over a photo of the existing structure”. 5. by  Chester Arante Atienza, Architecture Student/Artist from FEATI-University, Philippines

“This piece was actually a course work for my Landscape Architecture class in college, and it’s more than that. I like breathing life into every sketch I make. In this free-hand drawing I made, I left the main structure (a beach house) white; in order to emphasize the life that surrounds it. I used a variety of markers, a technical pen, the ever reliable HB pencil, and, of course, the imagination”. 4. by Nuntiwa Waiyasith, final year student of the Landscape Architecture department in Thammasat Design School, Thailand. “The sketch is a part of my urban design studio. Site design location is Lumpini, Bangkok. This sketch is the home office zone in my master plan. My design is to create the plaza to be the gathering space, for events and linking to other spaces, as well as including art to show the identity of this space. My sketch technique is pencil and pen drawing and colored pencil drawing”. Drawing Related Articles:
