Learning to sketch

I still remember how one of my sister’s friends had this incredible talent of drawing all sorts of things, from humans to dragons or from cars to robots. I also remember being so inspired by her ability that I immediately started drawing… and man, I was so terrible.

Fast-forward fifteen years, and here I am, trying my hand at sketching again. With more patience and proper expectations, I got along with my design colleagues at Advanced Installer. I started making one hour weekly sessions where we sketch random objects placed on the table in front of us.

It is a great reminder that with practice and a positive attitude, you can learn new stuff. As you’ll see in the timelapse videos below, my first try wasn’t that bright, but towards my 10th week, a difference can be seen.
