January 22, 30th Worldwide Sketchcrawl (first UAE)

January 22 was the 30th Worldwide Sketchcrawl. I have never been in one, So I organized one in Dubai, I guess is the fist one in the UAE too.
I had meet a few people in Dubai that also sketch and they were happy to join.
One of them was John Knight, an architect resident in Dubai, he has been sketching all his life, and has wonderful sketchbooks. I convinced him to open a flickr account to share his drawings but he still have to scan more. Please check his profile here and encourage him to share more sketches.
There were also many kids present. It was really a joy to see them sketch.
We met in the Dubai Creek and then we moved to Bastakiya (the old part of Dubai).
Here are John's two drawings followed by mines. Since most of the people left after lunch. I could not make pictures of the others work.
