Scott Gwynn hurt his drawing hand so his left hand is picking up the slack.

Love the looseness of these drawings. Might be a good exercise to try switching hands every once and while. Forces you to think about shape and over all design rather than surfacey stuff like line and texture.

Hope your hand gets well soon, Scott!

More great work on Scott’s tumblr.

Get More: MTV Shows

I always like to watch people draw, but this is one better - the voice-over (read by Wil Wheaton, no less) is text from Warren Ellis's new novel, Gun Machine, which looks and sounds pretty good. The drawings are made by southpaw, Ben Templesmith, and the video is directed by Jim Batt.  Kudos to the entire team.

I love this preview of Jim Woodring’s new book of sketchbook drawings, Problematic, and not just for a peek at the contents, but also for the chance to listen to Jim talk about the very act of keeping a small sketchbook. He uses small Moleskine sketchbooks and says this of them:

I really like these little books. They’re perfect for capturing fleeting impressions and they’re so small that they inspire a real economy of mischief that keeps the process straightforward and vital.

This is great: ten drawing tips from Gary Panter, including such gems as:

Most people (even your favorite artists) don’t like their drawings as much as they want to. Why? Because it is easy to imagine something better. This is only ambition, which is not a bad thing — but if you can accept what you are doing, of course you will progress quicker to a more satisfying level and also accidentally make perfectly charming drawings even if they embarrass you.

And:

Don’t worry about a style. It will creep up on you and eventually you will have to undo it in order to go further. Be like a river and accept everything.
