About

My name is Luis E. Aparicio.  Born and raised in San Juan, I currently live with my wife and son in Florida, Puerto Rico.  I have a Bachelors Degree in Environmental Design and a Masters degree in Architecture, both from the University of Puerto Rico.

Right now I work as part-time faculty, teaching two courses at the Graduate School of Landscape Architecture, “Representation: Tools and Techniques” and Computer Representation for Landscape Architects.  I also teach at the School of Fine Arts of Puerto Rico as part-time faculty, teaching two undergraduate courses at the Industrial Design department, “Introduction to Digital Design 2D” and “Introduction to Digital Design 3D”.  I also have my little online store at Etsy in which I sell both original sketches and reproductions, so if you like my work I invite you to drop by, http://www.etsy.com/shop/Garabateando

I will devote this blog to one of my passions: sketching.  With it I expect to keep honing my skills, as well as sharing whatever knowledge I have with my visitors.  I believe that sketching is the way designers create a bond with their creations, something that can not and will never be replaced by any computer software.

I hope you can join me and experience the same joy I feel when sketching.  I have been learning a lot and getting tons of inspiration from several fellow bloggers.  Please feel free to ask me any questions and of course, give me any pointers you care to share.

¡Gracias y hasta luego!

    Greetings.
    I am also in the building business as a renovation contractor doing some design work.
    You seem a natural for UrbanSketchers.org. Are you familiar with this sketching community?

    I agree with you about the disconcerting perspective of the Google Street View camera when virtually painting out. (I have been known to “readjust” the perspective in PhotoShop Elements before starting to sketch!)
