Stories from Readers
Last week I invited readers to write tiny stories for the tiny people I found in New York:
Aarti is a friend, and this story is also me hearing from her after three years. Hello, old friend!
I loved this descriptive story by. So much said in so few words!
This haiku by Lisa perfectly describes the transient relationship of sharing a seat.
And the winning entry is:
For the Coltrane reference, for such a layered story, for incorporating the rhythm and sounds of the NYC subway, this week’s winner is. Please email me your mailing address!
How to Draw Tiny People
It has been 2 months since my last Zoom workshop and I am ready for another!
I do not do these workshops very often. The next one will be in July/August. So if you have been waiting to learn from me, this is your chance! (Participants will get access to the video afterwards.)
A limited number of discounted seats are available to Substack readers. Just use code [SNEAKYREADER] at checkout.
Reddit is Nice to Me
I posted my New York sketches on the r/travel subreddit and received many wholesome comments.
I am offering new prints on my webshop, including this 4-pack from New York.
Another new listing is this drawing at False Creek in Vancouver, which became a viral reel on IG. I am offering a limited edition of signed and numbered prints!
🌆 I will be in Seattle this weekend, drawing with USk Seattle on March 25th.
🖋️ This Sunday, I shared with Insiders my response to a fan who took screenshots to print my sketches.
💻 The next Insider’s Hangout is on April 2nd. I am showing my sketchbooks and doing a draw-along. To join, become an Insider.
📖 I am currently reading Olivia Laing’s “Lonely City”.
🎙 I recorded two new episodes of the SneakyArt Podcast. The show returns from hiatus this Friday!
Thank you for your time and attention, dear reader. See you next week!
The False Creek drawing is DIVINE. I was really impressed with that one.
Thanks for sharing my story, Nishant. Love your work and am enjoying following you here!
