Mike Yoshiaki Daikubara
The author of two books in The Urban Sketching Handbooks series—Sketch Now, Think Later and Color First, Ink Later—Mike Daikubara began carrying a sketchbook in 2000 so he could communicate better and faster at his design day job. Now he sketches daily to see, understand, and enjoy! A Japanese-American, Mike grew up between Tokyo and New York City, attending an international school with kids from all over the world. He currently lives in Charlotte, North Carolina.
