  1. Great episode, James. Your emphasis on sketching a couple years ago changed my process for the better. I assume this episode was inspired by your missing sketchbook being found?

    By the way, I’ve heard you sell yourself short on your ability to “capture likenesses” a couple times, now… nonsense! Pure nonsense. If your aim was realism, then you’d have a point, but I don’t perceive that as your goal.

  2. I enjoyed episode 70. I have always fought with the idea of sketching, and my design process has always suffered because of it. There is just too much technology, software (tools) that just distracts me. Thank you for reiterating the importance of spending time in the conceptual (sketching phase) to save time later.

    One problem I may never overcome is my skill level/set being on par with the imagery in my mind. I struggle with harnessing over ambitious ideas. Oh well…. I am looking forward to the next episode.

    Thundercats HOOOO!

  3. Awesome cast. I think I speak for everyone when I say “Dude, finish that Rocketeer sketch. It looks bad-ass!”
