Streetside Sketches with Imagination

This artist's sketchbook makes me feel as if I am looking at a cross between urban sketching and the funnies section of the paper. His street views make it seems as though he'd been drawing something that was right in front of him... except now there are animals in people clothes running amuck all over the place. He goes by the Sketch Maverick (or _bad_octopus on Instagram) and seems to almost always follow the same formula of Moleskine + fountain pens + color pencils, and the results are incredible every time.

Sometimes my jaw drops when artists are way too casual about their talent and downplay how good they actually are. Intricate full page drawings of bustling city life and lively animal characters pour out of this guy constantly and he makes it seem so easy. I mean, his caption on the first photo above was "Lazy quick sketch." Seriously?!

My only wish would be if I could view his drawings outside of the low-res Instagram filter environment.
