Garis: An Anthology of Sketches by Johor Sketchers

Out Of Stock Garis: An Anthology of Sketches by Johor Sketchers

This sketch book project displays selected works from eight artists from Johor Sketchers with various career backgrounds. The project aims to raise the awareness on the importance of sketching in various things in life. It is crucial for those who are involved in arts to practice their skills in drawing and producing artworks. Sketching can also be practiced by non-artists as it helps one to visualize an idea better. Moreover, it is a form of therapy and self-meditation to express the inner feelings. 

The aim is also to acknowledge the people in general that the sketchers involved in this project come from different areas and backgrounds, and yet they are united in a group with the same interest – sketching. Some of them have been involved in the arts, and some have not. There are also some who have years of experience but have only recently started to sketch actively after joining Johor Sketchers. 

This book provides a medium for beginner artists or non-artists to observe and learn on how the artists take various subjects in their artworks and at the same time maintain their personal touch and trademarks.

Worry not if you are still trying to find your own style in artwork. It is never too late to start to sketch. Keep on sketching. It does not matter whether it turns out pretty or lousy – just keep on trying. It will only get better and better every time. Let’s sketch!  

"Sketching is the best tool to record space, time and incidents. This book is a collective visual diary of Johorean."

“Garis deserves to be one of the best artwork collections by a group of sketchers that should be the pride of Johor. Ever since they started sketching actively, they have managed to capture a number of interesting historical places, local cultures and folks stories through their works, which have become important and valuable Johor treasures.”
