Grandma By Vincent Hui
Wouldn't it be cool if you could watch your favorite artists start on something from scratch? To watch the mistakes, the edits and more importantly, to see the process? Well, now you can.
The good people over at Sketch Theatre do just that. The basic premise is to create a spot for other aspiring artists to watch streaming video of some of the most creative contemporary artists doing the thing that they first fell in love with... sketching. Featured artists include Corey Miller, Steven Daily, Gary Baseman, Cameron Davis, Vincent Hui and so many more.
But wait, there's more... Rifling through the website you'll find cool streaming music (from Mountain Goats to BRMC) to get you inspired, contests that you can enter in to win cool stuff and exclusive merch that will keep this site afloat.
For anyone that was ever put a pencil down to paper, I'll wrap this post up with Sketch Theatre's mission statement:
Sketch Theatre serves to motivate and inspire artists from all walks of life. Here, aspiring artists are exposed to contemporary artists and the various career paths taken by these like-minded individuals who all began their careers with the primary process of putting ideas and expressions down with a pencil & paper. The brilliant myriad of artists featured on Sketch Theatre strip down and expose raw sketches on camera, never failing to captivate and inspire. Enjoy the show.
