Description

This is a fun and easy journey through an artist's sketchbooks, looking at different sizes and paper quality. We review pocket pads, journal-sized, illustration size, and even digital options. By the end, students will have a better idea of the type of sketchbook that they want to keep, what mediums they want to work in, and what types of subjects they may want to draw. Afterward, there's an odd/fun story about the instructor's experience with old sketchbooks. So don't miss that! And happy sketching!

Who this course is for:
  • Beginner or experienced artists that are curious about the type of sketchbooks that other artists keep.

Pocket pads are sketchbooks that can easily fit in your back pocket. They are mostly used for quick note-taking and doodles on the go.

Pocket Pads

This lecture covers standard-sized sketchbooks and journals (6"x9") and what they are used for, showing the forms they come in and the mediums that you can draw on them with. This size is easy to carry with you in a book bag or even in your hand, with a pen or pencil, everywhere you go. Additionally, a newsprint sketchbook is shown, with examples of life drawings in pencil, conte, and pen.

Illustration pads come in a larger format and feature paper that can take various media, such as markers and even watercolour paint. Illustration pads can be used to develop finished pieces. These are less handy for taking outside but can be taken now and again to a museum, zoo, or life drawing session. The work can be cleaned-up and painted later at home.

And of course, we talk a bit about digital sketchbooks. (The app used in the video samples is ProCreate.) When traveling light or wanting to have options for finalizing drawings, a digital tablet may be a good option. The best ones on the market simulate the application of pencil to paper pretty closely -not exactly, but closely. It's a fun contemporary option with lots of capabilities.
