The Urban Sketcher, Jaume Jané took back his pencils after a 7-month world tour
The Urban Sketchers Barcelona are back at the festival and among them we met Jaume Jané who resumed his taste for drawing after a 7-month world tour.
Why join the network of Urban Sketchers Barcelona?
I have been drawing since I was a child, but at the age of 10 I stopped. In 2015, I went around the world for 7 months. I only took notes in a notebook and then I regained my self-confidence and I started drawing again in this notebook. In 2016, when I returned home to Barcelona, I discovered this community of designers that I immediately loved.
What are you exhibiting at the festival?
Each cartoonist in the collective exhibits a drawing. My drawing represents a street in Barcelona: Carrer d’Aiguafreda that I drew during a drawing class. I chose this place because it is an old street.
What are your plans ?
We would like to create a book with a drawing of a hundred Urban Sketchers. We would like to publish it within a year.
If you could go anywhere, tomorrow, where would you go?
In China because there is a culture very different from ours and to see the statues of Chinese warriors Xian.
