Sketchbooking is like facebooking but you actually create something. Loads of schools used to have it as part of an artistic curriculum but nowadays its more emphasis on the technical side of design and not so much on being able to actually draw. Drawing is something i am a big believer in, drawing is the best way of being able to visualise what you are trying to portray quickly and easily.

As you may or may not know I am currently on a Motion Graphics and Animation University course, and with animation you would think that it would involve a lot of this drawing melarkey. But yet again drawing is becoming less of a necessity and its all about using the technical tools.

Because that is all Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects and Maya are, tools, and a lot of people first learn how to use them, then think they can be creative with it. Creative people take what they have in their head, look at the material and see what tool will be the best way to accomplish this.

With the rant out the way, i thought i would share some of my sketchbooking...
