Easy as ABC... it has been a long time since I posted a video so here is a very quick 3 minute doodle with a Sharpie​ this morning before calling into a conference call. Turn on the sound to hear the markers squeaking on the page... if you are into that sort of thing :-)

I can't believe 2016 is just about over. I thought you all might like to see every fun free time sketch I did in 2016. There are about 250 sketches here. I wanted to put this together to show you just how many rapid visualization exercises I do in a year. Remember, these are just my for fun sketches. This doesn't include all of the sketches I do for new product development projects I'm working on at Sound United or with freelance clients. Obviously I can't show you those until those products launch! It is important to sketch at a high volume like this so your skills are sharp and you can freely express your ideas without hesitation. A great sketch is about three things, developing an idea, communicating the idea, and inspiring others to believe in that idea. A great sketch can be incredibly persuasive. So set yourself a goal to do just one fun sketch a day in the next year and you will see your skills dramatically improve. Happy 2017 everyone, now get sketching!

look forward to more of your work in 2017, yo!

to everyone else, i recommend watching this a .25 speed so you can look at the drawings a little longer. also, protip, if you pause the video you can use the period button to move forward frame by frame. comma button goes backwards by a frame.

Why is sketching still important? I'm really excited to be able to share this short video piece I did for Hector Silva, who founded Advanced Design Sketching. In this video I talk why I think sketching still so important in today's design world. there is also a bonus behind the scenes look at my home design studio ... can you have a bonus at the beginning of something? This bonus is. If you have watched any of my previous videos you have seen the sketch surface on my desk. Today I zoom out to show you what you don't see.

Loved the little video, explanation is pretty spot on and your place is shockingly similar to mine and other designers/architects I know, that is pretty cool : )

Yes, we are all trying to be different... in exactly the same way :-) Thanks Keno, I think sketching can be a very powerful tool but only when coupled with thought.

a couple of what I am calling "quick take" videos:

The next episode:



In my last video I sketched one of the most complex products you can represent on paper, a car. Lets take it down a notch. In this episode I’ll be sketching a front load washing machine. I wanted to draw something rather geometric to show you a particular technique of sketching with drawing tools. My very first boss out of design school, Aaron Szymanski at Evo Design, had this amazing technique where he could draw with straight edges and ellipse guides but still keep the sketch light and airy, not too tight. The way he showed me that he did this is by moving the drawing tool slightly as you go back and forth across your lines. This way the lines feel sketchier. So I’ve brought out my Rocky’s Modern Life ruler and an ellipse guide to show you how to work up a sketch with this method.

I'm very excited to be speaking at StrukturEvent during Design Week Portland on April 26th. I'll be speaking about design leadership and what it takes to elevate design in the decision making process in a corporation.... since the primary audience is outdoor designers, I couldn't resist sketching up an liner for my softgoods Saturday Sketch. For those of you who don't know, I'm trying to post a sketch every single day of 2017 on my instagram account... it has been a challenge some days, but they are starting to add up! https://www.instagram.com/d2lo/

Awesome!

I always struggle with adding grain. Are those prismacolour markers? The fine tip they have makes the grain look a lot more legitimate than the thicker ones I've tried.

Yes, those are prisma colors. Try working very lightly with your paper pressure. Just barely touch the paper.
