9 December, 2018. Gesture sketching is fun, fast, and immediate. They work or they suck. Period. When they work, things feel great. Lines just seem to lay down on the page in exactly the right way, exactly the right place.
And when they don’t work… well, those pages never see the light of day ever again.
I think gesture sketches are a way of learning, of studying the world around you. They’re a kind of shorthand.
