Throwback Thursday on Tuesday Tips
Drawing with PEN, from Dynamic Sketching week 1Dynamic Sketching is definitely a very popular Art Center class. It was first introduced by Norm Schureman and now Peter Han is the man who continues Norm’s awesome legacy. This is the one class that taught me to be a designer and a thinker. Having a good drawing skill is a must, but you must also be a problem solver, smart and have good ideas. One way to convey your idea effectively is through sketches. And you can do this quickly if you train yourself to sketch with pen.
Pros of using pen:
1. faster (no noodling or erasing)
2. more confident sketches
3. it looks cool
1. can’t erase! (which force you to learn to be more confident)
*yep, only one con!!!
This is the first week exercise from Dynamic Sketching — learning how to create texture. The idea is to create value from 100 to 0 (black to white). Do as many different texture as you like. It does take a lot time at first. And like all basic things, it can be tideous but very important to learn.Try it out and have fun.
ps. I use Sharpie Ultra Fine Point permanent marker. I like how the ink flow. It’s also very cheap. Double win!

I love the part of Singapore where I’m not surrounded by intimidating high-rise buildings.
