A Familiar Face

Found this – dah lama, tapi still relevant – dari The Star;

A stickler for detail


Wandering the heritage streets of the Old Town of Edinburgh, a Malaysian artist decided to record its splendour on paper.

A collection of black-and-white sketches is spread out in front of me, with every little detail painstakingly recorded. The artist must have had so much patience to attempt such a feat.

Ruzaimi Mat Rani, 33, has laboriously sketched 500 pictures of Edinburgh Old Town which, when put together, represent the entire town. He carried out this project when he was given a scholarship by the Government to do his Masters in Landscape Architecture at Edinburgh College of Art from 2000 to 2002.
