In today’s technologically advanced world, sketching is still the best way to bring an idea to life. Artists draw what their minds see, whether it’s solving a design problem or communicating how they perceive the world around them. The process of drawing allows an artist to develop an idea, freely with no fear, since there are no rules. A sketch may take one minute to complete, while a drawing is usually a more complex approach. Drawing is the most helpful and fundamental approach to thinking and expressing oneself visually. It reveals an artist’s thought process and provides the opportunity to endless possibilities.
