If you follow me on social media, you know that I’ve been road-testing a lot of streaming/video options over the last month or so. Streaming itself seems like a good idea, but I think my teacher brain turns on a bit too much and I end up talking and sharing and digging out visual examples rather than drawing, which––while informative, perhaps––doesn’t actually showcase as much drawing as I would like. I’m not saying I’m going to stop, but I really need to figure out what to stream before actually jumping on and doing it.

However, editing and compiling pre-recorded video is a much safer option for me. It also lets me control the speed at which I draw, so instead of watching me contemplate an artistic decision for fifteen minutes, the viewer can simply watch the drawing come to life in a sped-up fashion. I’ll probably bounce between live-streams (I need to figure out when people are online and willing to watch when that happens) and these pre-recorded and edited versions until I find the right balance and style.
