VIDEO: Sketchbook Tour Flip Through (2013)

VIDEO: Today we’re gonna hitch a ride with H.G. Wells back in time to visit the Morlocks of the year 2013 and enlighten them with what is known today as a sketchbook tour flip through.

Just imagine: You have the incredibly amazing opportunity to look over my shoulder as I flip through an old sketchbook, make fun of my drawings and see some of the finished art the sketchbook ideas turned into. Sketches, pencil drawings, watercolor, ink drawings and comics– check out the good stuff and all the total screw-ups.

3 Things I learned from my sketchbook drawings in 2013: (1) Experiment more.  (2) Write down or draw your ideas or you will forget. (3) For drawing ideas, revisit the classics.

Video: BLACK SABBATH BAPTISM: The Riddle of Steel

VIDEO: *Best experienced with headphones*

Welcome back to Sketchbook Time Machine. Today I’m drawing the illustrated story for a sketchbook journal entry from June, 2017 called The Riddle of Steel. It’s the story of Kurt, a true bad ass and a good friend of mine in junior high, who introduced me to Black Sabbath. It was one of those brief but pivotal eras of youth that stay with you for the rest of your life.

VIDEO: 7 Drawing Idea Prompts (Expert Level)

VIDEO: Welcome back to Sketchbook Time Machine, I’m Harper and today I’m inviting you to draw with me so we can tune up our creative thinking, drawing and illustration skills. I’ve got 7 drawing idea prompts that are guaranteed to test your imagination, melt your mind and possibly even break your brain…

Now I know that may sound like bombastic click bait, but honestly…

These are just really hard– the seventh one I’m not even going to attempt.

Okay, so here’s a couple things to remember: Your finished image doesn’t have to be completely literal, it can be an extrapolation of the idea. The drawing prompts are meant to be a starting point– let your mind explore the idea and see what you come up with.

But be prepared to explain how you got to your idea. What are the relationships between the drawing prompt and your final image? How did you get from point A to point B?

And if you make it through the first three drawing prompts with me, I’ve got a set of three more that are even harder at the end of the video, plus a secret seventh prompt that’s so hard it’ll make most artists pee their pants and cry. But enough talking, let’s get to it.

VIDEO: Sketchbook Journaling: How I Got Hooked and Why I Haven’t Quit 23 Years Later

VIDEO:

Welcome back to Sketchbook Time Machine, I’m Harper and today we’re talking about sketchbook journals– how I got started and why I still keep one 23 years later. And, since this is a sketchbook story time video, I’m gonna be drawing and using water color to paint a page of at least 47 and a half characters of whatever magically pops into my head.

It was a battered old storage trunk held together with rotting leather straps that ran around the circumference and locked with flimsy metal fasteners. Not big, but a body could be folded into it and discreetly transported to the desert in a pinch.

It once belonged to my great Aunt So and So on my father’s side, and was now sitting in our carport flaking decades of decay onto the cement floor. Somebody else in the family had held on to it until they died and it was passed on to my dad.

We opened it with a skeleton key– it’s super hazy now– but I think there were some clothes, a few books of little interest,  a pair of shoes… and maybe a bible inside. They weren’t my memories, so I didn’t understand why anyone would keep them. But on the peeling, water damaged bottom of the trunk were two scrapbook journals.

I was in my late teens and didn’t care about old stuff from people I’d never met. I had always enjoyed the scrapbooks my mom made, but they were well crafted, good-looking collections of my immediate family in funny clothes and regrettable hairstyles.

These bound time capsules pulled from an otherwise collection of junk held photos, newspaper clippings, movie ticket stubs and hand written journal entries in the margins and open spaces of the weathered pages. A piece of a 45 record, a gumball machine ring, and a second place ribbon from the state fair were barely sticking to the pages with cracked yellow glue.

The first one was pretty full but the second went mysteriously blank about halfway through as if the author had said, “Ah, who cares” and quit. I wasn’t enamored or amazed, epiphany hadn’t touched me in the secret places, but I liked something about those books. And though I never found out who they belonged to, the idea of personal experience being recorded and available for future discovery was intriguing.

A few years later I started keeping a mini journal in the Ansel Adams monthly planner Mom gave me for Christmas every year. (I think today the style would be called a bullet journal.) Short weekly recaps with a handful of standout stories and mundane reminders. I kept these little reports for three or four years planning that I might move on to a full size journal at some point.

I think that early experience of  finding those old scrapbooks with part of a stranger’s life story locked in the time-worn pages stuck with me. In the summer of 1995, I moved a hundred miles from home to start my first big-time art job and a new chapter in life. Being in this exciting and inspirational place, it felt like the perfect time to start recording my experiences.

I’ve kept a sketchbook journal ever since.

Out of sheer embarrassment, there are plenty of entries that I would love to black out like a redacted government UFO report, but the good stuff and memories far outweigh the screw-ups and naivety.

So why write in a journal? Artists usually keep an ongoing sketchbook to practice drawing and try out new techniques, but why add words into the mix? I think the writer/artist Austin Kleon answered this question with a great 1,2,3 punch.

1. It helps me pay attention to my life
2. I have a terrible memory
3. It’s a good place to have bad ideas

I’ll add a fourth reason to the list:
It’s my therapy.

In addition to the ideas, drawings, writing scraps and small delusions, it’s a place to unload all the garbage in my head where the only opinions are mine. A self-sounding board. You can write ugly things and get stuff off your chest. It’s a steam vent for life’s hogwash so I don’t stab the next jerk I meet.

Writing is a great way to get your head right and get your stuff together– like a long drive on an open highway. A journal is the place for those secret project ideas, grand designs and thoughts you’re afraid to say out loud.

Bonus Value: It’s a great progress report that shows how you’ve improved your writing, drawing, and critical thinking skills over time. A personal inventory and life review. Meditation. Motivation.

Sounds great, right? Well here’s the catch:

Unfortunately, this time machine is only programmed to travel backward. You can only time-jump through history. It’s a great tool for plans, goals, and mind maps that project into the unknown, but the future is always a blank page of possibilities…

All right, hold on, that last part was super cheesy, I know… but the thing is, it’s also true.

(VIDEO) Deadly Class : Drawing Favorite Characters

VIDEO: Today I’m drawing my favorite character from the comic and now TV show, Deadly Class. And it’s probably not who you think it is. I know everyone loves the leading ladies– Saya is mysterious and lethal, Maria is dangerous and loyal – but the one I’m always rooting for is Billy. I just like that kid.

So for today’s sketchbook journal entry, let’s head way back to 1996. Just like in issue 9 of the comic when Saya and Marcus go to see The Adolescents at The Fillmore, this is the story of my first punk show.
