What is your creative process? How do you decide what to draw and paint?

It’s natural. I paint, sketch and draw urban views all of my life. About 5 years ago I became very interested in‘Carnet de Voyage’ or the Travel Sketches genre. The Art of Carnets de Voyage is a very unique art niche. I create my artwork in situ as well as in my artistic studio. The sketches are accompanied by written comments, which become a part of the art. Those written observations help me to share some interesting facts I have learned while painting and sketching. Eventually those sketches will be combined into the completed project that consist of drawings, watercolors, sketches and prints, as well as mixed media pieces such as collages with newspaper clips and tickets, all rearranged into an intrinsic structure of an artist’s bookwork, like, for example, ‘Toronto Graffiti’book which is on showcase at my Etsy shop‘Toronto Graffiti’ is also available in a French version. This book is a cross-art object, since it combines two genres in one – sketchbook and a comic book.


The best urban sketching spot ever!

It’s cold now already. But just about 20 days ago it was perfect urban sketching weather! And fantastic afternoon light. Today, in a beginning of November I have to invent some beter solution for sketching shores.

Love the recent holiday idea of decoration

Lunchtime sketching

Leave a comment


This summer I found the way to keep myself sketching when I actually have no more time for that. It happens during the lunch time in downtown Toronto. I just take 30 minutes to go outside sketching instead of browsing internet. Imagine how easy!

I hope it’d considered as if we still working on our long awaited project “Toronto Graffiti”.
