Review:
Well this is fun! Townscapes can be a hard sell, but this busy book records the city at work, at play and in all its moods. --Artbookreview.net

The book is actually arranged as a series of short lessons including composition, perspective, people and buildings, but you may never notice that, as every page is busy and intriguing in its vitality, interpretation and detail --The Artist
About the Author:
Thomas Thorspecken (AKA Thor) first studied art as a teenager in a sculptor's studio in his hometown. In exchange for sweeping the floors, he was offered his first life drawing lessons. After high school, he attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City studying animation and Illustration. He paid for school doing freelance illustration along with other art directing jobs. In his ten years in the city, one of his assignments was for the Daily News doing drawings of historic buildings for a weekly column called, "Undiscovered Manhattan." Thor relocated to Orlando, Florida, in 1993 to work for Walt Disney Feature Animation. After ten years at Disney, the studio closed and he continued to pursue his passion for art through teaching. He rediscovered his love of Urban sketching when he entered two sketches done on location for a show featuring works done of Orlando landmarks. After winning first place and selling both pieces in the show, he was reminded of his longtime passion for Urban sketching. On January first of 2009, Thor made a New Year's resolution to post one sketch a day, sharing it with an online community through his blog "Analog Artist Digital World". What started as a whim has now become a daily commitment that has lead to both self-discovery and exposure to Orlando's diverse arts community. As he states on the site, "This is my way to finally put down roots, to become part of the community, one sketch at a time."
