Drawing has always been an important part of what I do — whether snatched sketches on the bus in the morning, or long considered poses at a life drawing class. There are many times when it makes sense to push the keyboard aside and get to work with a pencil and paper, if only to see where it takes you. In the agency world Mac visuals are slowly killing the art of the scamp — a great shame as a simple scamp can take a client through the broad strokes of an concept better than any Mac visual.
Regular life-drawing classes keep my drawing skills honed and remind me of where I started this journey. They’ve also provided me with a large amount of inspiration and and a renewed love of the black chinagraph pencil.
