Why do I sketch

Why do I sketch ?

Well I sketch to really see the world, one sight and one view, each time. Even the views that are around me all the time, became new , when I take my time to sketch them. Why don’t I take a photo and move on? Because sketching it’s different from taking a photo, the photo doesn’t show what you are really looking at, it shows everything on a wide frame, instead,a sketch shows what really took your attention and takes inside it a world of sensations, smells, conversations around you , sounds and even the light on that day, each time you open your sketchbook and see that sketch again.

I get more aware of my surroundings but at same time, When I’m sketching, I go myself to a place where I’m not judging and I have no prejudices, I feel like a child discovering little important things, feeling the wonder of seeing for the first time hold views that were there for me all the time. A sketch it’s also a way to rebuilt your world, to stop time and focus on yourself and each little part of the world each time.

For me it’s a happy place to be when I’m upset or annoyed or have time to spent. I sketch to myself even thought I share later them on my blog, on Facebook and Instagram, I do it in the hope to inspire others to sketch too and feel the joy of being free to see the world on their own way.
