Sketchbooking Demo: Young Female

Have you been waiting for another long form video of art making?  The process can be mysterious for many, and for creators, it can go by quickly.  Thirty minutes later something is there that wasn't there before.  Mistakes and all! Sketchbooking with Johnny takes you on one such journey.  There is no plan when sketching, just choices made along the way.  I find it interesting to be able to look back on those choices and see where alternate routes could've taken, or see how unknowingly the product can come together despite seemingly random paths.   It can be meditative at times.  If you're looking to see how my process looks while I'm in the throws of creativity, then check this video out! Its about 25 minutes and features some of my Garage Band music mixing. 


My materials list for this video include:

  • 2mm Lead Sketching Pencil (this one by Prismacolor Turquoise)
  • Mircron Pens (sized 02 and 05)
  • Pentel Pocket Brush Pen
  • Tombow Dual Tip Markers (water-soluble)
  • Marvy Le Plume II Markers (water-soluble)
  • Pentel Aquabrush (water brush)


Is there something you'd like to see me paint or draw? Let me know in the comments!  Are you struggling with a particular technique or tool?  Let me know maybe I can help!  Thanks for watching and check out some of my other videos and demos!

About the Artist

 I would call myself a Jack of all Trades, but mostly because I'm interested in many areas of art if not all!  I graduated with a BFA in Fine Art from the University of North Texas with a focus on Watercolor.   I always had dreams of creative writing, and in 5th grade I wasn't too bad!  Art clearly won out for my attention, but writing will always have a place in my heart!

What better way to write, I say,  than to share a blog, and practice my second love while talking about my first! With that said, I hope you all enjoy my ramblings and please hit me up with any questions.  :D  Contact me!
