Hi! I'm Alena Kudriashova, an architect and an urban sketcher from Russia, currently based in Singapore. I bring my sketchbook wherever I travel, documenting places and things happening to me. In the modern world where we are overwhelmed by vast amount of information, where snapping a picture became so easy (and so meaningless), that I felt the necessity to create something that will help me remember things that happened to me.
A sketchbook provides exactly that, keeping record of places, events, people, and even weather and smells. All of it is woven into the lines of every sketch, making it the most secure place for keeping memories.
