Starting from Sketches

Inspiration is spontaneous. Whether or not the conditions for sparking inspiration are controlled, the arrival of an idea is unpredictable and not always certain. The transformation from idea to realized work can hinge on how an artist captures that moment of creative inception—and, subsequently, how that thought is developed beyond its original state.

Sketchwork lends a hand through this progression, be it through actual sketching or through other means of thought development. Watch as the artists in these films gather inspiration and progress through ideas en route to executing their visions.
