I was recently invited to join Sketch Theatre which was such a huge honor for me. In case you’re not familiar with them I implore you to check out their website. It’s full of incredibly inspiring time lapsed videos of some of the most amazing artists sketching, drawing, painting and just doing their thing!
I must admit I was a bit nervous about doing this. I tend to be my own worst critic, as I’m sure most of us are, but I couldn’t pass up this kind of opportunity! When I arrived at the studio I was greeted by the executive producer of Sketch Theatre, Lily, (who is as sweet and kind as she is gorgeous!) and she really made me feel welcome! I sat at a large desk with a huge camera hanging just overhead and a monitor to my right. I threw on my iPod and went to work.
I sketched from start to finish for one hour which was a little strange for me as I tend to work on multiple projects at the same time switching back and forth. But once I got in the zone it was easier than I had originally thought. Watching myself draw in the monitor was kind of fun but after a while I completely forgot it was there.
When the video was finished it was even cooler than I thought it would be. Lily set the video to an awesome track by the Crocodiles which went so well with my drawing and she had such wonderful things to say about my work! I can’t express enough gratitude to Lily and everyone at Sketch Theatre for including me in this amazing art experience and I can’t wait to do it again!
I hope you guys enjoy my sketch! Watch the video here: Glenn Arthur 01
