Best Urban Sketcher 

Thomas Thorspecken

When former Disney animator Thomas Thorspecken started blogging daily sketches of Orlando’s arts scene back in 2009, it was a lark that looked to last for a year at most. Half a decade later, “Thor” and his watercolor kit are fixtures at every important area entertainment event, and his renderings have reached beyond the Internet with a well-received exhibition at Snap Space in March and a fast-selling instructional book explaining the essentials of urban sketching. Thorspecken’s prints now sell for hundreds of dollars, so snag one while you can still afford it.
