Sketching Vancouver

It always seems so romantic: sitting on the crest of a hill, charcoal in hand, sketching the beach below and the mountains beyond. But, if everything you sketch looks like a puddle or an elf’s bonnet, the experience soon loses its lustre.

Thankfully, Michael H.X. Zhu has created a sketchbook stand-in for we the spatially challenged. In visiting local spots from Stanley Park to Robson Square, Chinatown, Commercial Drive and Grouse Mountain, this local artist has fully completed some sketches and left others in outline for us to adult-colour.

Visitors can follow his path from site to site, jotting down notes in the empty book spaces. Once you finish Vancouver, he offers some sketches of the Fraser Canyon, Banff and beyond.
