This is a podcast about drawing on location, with host Nishant Jain. Nishant speaks with other artists and urban-sketchers about the things that motivate them to draw their world, and the different ways that it enhances their lives.

In this episode, I speak with artist and educator Suhita Shirodkar (San Jose, California) about how she finds artistic opportunities in brief moments of calm during her day. From looking at her work, you can tell that Suhita is always working against time. Her sketches are driven by instinct and inspiration. By drawing quickly, her work captures a domestic life that is nonetheless dynamic, people who are doing things, and settings that are alive with activity and color. We talk about the importance of drawing regularly to “turn the page” as an artist, the idea of the sketchbook as art, and the interesting ways she is reaching out to students and followers during lockdown.

This show is sustained by the enthusiasm of listeners. I would love to here what you think of this episode, or other episodes on the SneakyArt Podcast. Send an email to
