Maxwell Tilse is an Australian illustrator now living in London currently backpacking and keeping a comic diary of my travels.
On his current trip he has mostly done quick pencil sketches outside. After, he finds a warm cozy place to finish the drawing with a hot meal and a cold beer. Here are a few of the finished postcard sketches of the cities he has visited.

Frank Lloyd Wright was one of the most prolific and renowned architects of the 20th century, a radical designer and intellectual who embraced new technologies and materials, pioneered do-it-yourself construction systems as well as avant-garde experimentation, and advanced original theories with regards to nature, urban planning, and social politics. Marking the 150th anniversary of the American architect’s birth on June 8, 1867, MoMA presents Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: Unpacking the Archive, a major exhibition that critically engages his multifaceted practice.
The exhibition comprises approximately 450 works made from the 1890s through the 1950s, including architectural drawings, models, building fragments, films, television broadcasts, print media, furniture, tableware, textiles, paintings, photographs, and scrapbooks, along with a number of works that have rarely or never been publicly exhibited. Structured as an anthology rather than a comprehensive, monographic presentation of Wright’s work, the exhibition is divided into 12 sections, each of which investigates a key object or cluster of objects from the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation Archives, interpreting and contextualizing it, and juxtaposing it with other works from the Archives, from MoMA, or from outside collections. The exhibition seeks to open up Wright’s work to critical inquiry and debate, and to introduce experts and general audiences alike to new angles and interpretations of this extraordinary architect.
Go out and sketch, all you need is pen and paper (or pencil depending on your preference). It does not matter how crude or developed are the drawings, practice is what matters. Maybe there is an urban sketchers group on a city near to you, there is no substitute to sharing tips and techniques with a group of sketchers. Here is an article with some basic information about urban sketching.
