Sketchbook: A Year in Jerusalem

Sketchbook: A Year in Jerusalem | Doodlers Anonymous


Ever feel homesick for a place you're not even from? I never visited Jerusalem, but these drawings feel like old memories of somewhere I haven't been yet. The artist is Vincent Mahé, a Parisian who spent a year in Jerusalem and brought it back with him in a sketchbook. His sketches include the big touristy sites everyone knows, but also the empty streetsides and tops of buildings that you don't normally see in photos. There's something captivating about the simple lines—-the way he creates shadows with them, the way the drawing seamlessly becomes less detailed the further away from the focus point.
