I really love speed drawing. Especially when it's done incognito, in a public space like a cafeteria, beach or a bus stop. Capturing the moment in 5-15 seconds with essential gestures, moves and light wipes the mindfulness and is really amazing for me. I particularly like drawing with a black marker because it's bold and distinctly draws what's lightened and what's shady (like in this post). Not always my sketches are good enough to share them (honestly, majority of them is simply ugly) because I treat them as an exercise, not a final drawing, final product to be proud of. But I've chosen a few of my latest sketches which I find quite cool. Each of them was drawn in less than 2 minutes with a stopwatch in hand. How do you like them?
