Learn how to use your sketchbook as a tool of communication and exploration.
- [Instructor] Sketching is so important…to your development.…Nowadays everyone has access…to digital sketching programs and software.…Although it's super convenient…putting in the work with traditional pen and paper…will help you gain more confidence in your abilities…to design and visualize.…Let's revisit the coffee label I designed for Mostra,…which was 99% drawn traditionally with pen and ink.…I started this design not with pencil…but with a light marker underlay.…I then drew directly on top of the marker with pen.…Being able to go into a sketch using just a pen…is not magic…but a skill developed with a lot of practice and mileage.…
I rehearsed this drawing quite a few times,…so when it came to the final…it was about muscle memory and control.…Speed and accuracy was achieved over time via practice…and studying my sketchbook.…Most of the drawings you see in my sketchbook…are demonstrations for my students…or just for fun in my free time.…I try to draw different things…and study animals, plants, mechanics,…and a lot of everyday events…
