As a kid, I spent hours drawing and sketching ideas that popped into my head.

Sketching: the Visual Thinking Power Tool

I used drawing as a primary language for capturing thoughts, exploring ideas, and then sharing those ideas. Teachers and mentors encouraged me, helping to sustain sketching as a key skill throughout school and into my professional career. Good fortune has ignited my passion to become a sketch advocate, helping others rediscover sketching as a powerful problem-solving and communication tool. I’m excited to share why sketching can be so beneficial, show samples of sketches, and provide helpful resources. My goal is to encourage you—whether you’re a designer, front-end developer, coder, writer or whatever you may be—to add sketching to your toolkit.

But I can’t sketch—I’m not an artist! When I suggest sketching as a visual thinking tool, I often I hear “I’m not an artist” or “I can’t draw.” When you feel inadequate in your sketching, pause and reconsider your perspective. Fig 1.

The sketchbook - a creative diary

Do not expect less. It might take some time until you notice it, but it will happen. Especially sketching outdoors from life has a strong influence on body and mind. It starts with simple physical effects. Getting out for a walk, moving around and getting exposed to light is very healthy especially also in winter. Be prepared that you will see things you have not noticed before at all and you will see your known surroundings from a different point of view. Also a kind of visual programming will start as drawing is not a one way action of putting something down on paper. Drawing sessions in combination with walking are a great way to get a clear and calm mind and to get your creative forces into work. Drawing gets the right side of the brain into work and relaxes the intellectual left side of the brain. Andrea joseph's sketchblog.

The great artist Leonardo da Vinci's notebooks probably started out as just a way for him to improve the quality of his paintings.

Leonardo's Sketch Books

He studied anatomy to portray the human body accurately. He studied plants and rocks to make them authentic for his paintings. Somewhere along the line, however, the books became more than that. They became a record of his life-long fascination with nature and his genius for invention. At the time of his death in 1519 Leonardo was known as a great artist, but his capabilities as an engineer, scientist and inventor were less appreciated. In 1630 Pompeo Leoni, a sculptor in the Court of the King of Spain, got a hold of much of the material and tried to organize it by subject. In many of his books Leonardo employed a backwards form of writing that could only be read with a mirror. Clearly the notebooks were written for his own personal use. Much of the books appear to be lab notes. Of particular interest are the pages on gliders and flying machines. The sketchbook's name is Homs. Sketchbook - The Bearskinrug Sketchbook.

A sketchbook is a research document, shoebox and a junk drawer. An artist’s sketchbook serves as chronicle and witness. Through sketchbook-journals, students begin to record their creative process in a way that leads to their own self-definition of creativity as well as to the discovery of internal and external creative development.

These days, I tend to write notes in multiple journals — keeping it casual — I’ll even use stapled books, or post-it books of the larger size. In the past, I’ve drawn journals that are gathering places for ideas, as well as project plans and notations. But in a manner, the idea of the journal is less about the actual professional work, and more about the personal work.

I singled out these sketchbooks because their work has been portrayed in interesting ways that make you want to read what they provided. I especially like all the illustrative work in these sketchbooks as I think a visual aid is much better than a stack of writing. I think that sketchbooks are more interesting when they have drawings and things stuck into them which provide more depth, such as leaflets or postcards. The photographs that I have posted below are a few of my favourites. Sketchbooks. Sketchbooks: Most artists keep sketchbooks in which they experiment with ideas and collect drawings of their environment.


The most famous artist sketchbooks are those of Leonardo da Vinci. His sketchbooks are filled with drawings, diagrams and written notes of things he saw and ideas he came up with. Picasso produced 178 sketchbooks in his life time. He often used his sketchbooks to explore themes and make compositional studies until he found the right idea and subject for a larger painting on canvas. If you want to be an artist, it's a good idea to start carrying a sketchbook around with you all the time. Real progress in developing yourself as an interactive designer will depend on you frequently and habitually sketching out your ideas and their variations, reflecting on your ideas, and then developing those that seem promising.

Sketchbooks are useful in many ways. It will serve as a way for you to refer back to your ideas over time. The sketchbook will help you learn the following. The Sketchbook Project - WE DESIGN STUDIOS. We recently heard about a really amazing art event that is currently traveling throughout the United States. The Sketchbook Project is displaying nearly 10,000 completed sketchbooks in nine major cities in the United States and is produced by Arthouse, a Brooklyn-based co-op with a goal to bring art to the masses. Arthouse began its project by sending out 28,839 blank sketchbooks to artists in 94 different countries. Almost one-third were mailed back to them, pages filled with wonderful expressions of creativity. We wish we had heard about this earlier so we could have sent in our own hand-drawn doodles and dreams! But thankfully we will have the opportunity to view the incredible works in April when the tour makes a stop in Atlanta.

The sketchbooks began their tour in Brooklyn in February.
