I Can’t Draw

“I cannot draw”, many people tell me. And I don’t believe them. What they probably mean is, “I cannot draw well.”

I’m very happy with my latest experiment: my first sketchkeynote on YouTube. If you think I did well, please like, tweet, and plus the hell out of it. 🙂

    Totally correct Jurgen! I started to draw a few clouds and some people a few years ago and now I draw every time I present something, like what we do as a company – we learn all the time, don’t we?

    @ 1.38, you said something very fundamental.
    Its a matter of organizing thoughts using an illustration.
    I like it.
    In fact this has been my problem too, till I saw your video.

    Hi. My drawings could easily outperformed by my One Year Old daughter. But i really want to improve myself. Love your presentations. Sorry for my stupid question but which tools do you use for your drawings?

    Thanks! I use my hands, a scanner, and Paint.NET (free).

    Nice drawing and presentation Jurgen. I use Paper http://www.fiftythree.com/paper and sometime Adobe Ideas https://itunes.apple.com/nl/app/adobe-ideas-vector-drawing/id364617858?mt=8 Since the iPad I’ve discovered that I can actually draw 🙂

    Jurgen, your video was one of the inspirations that encouraged me to try my first drawing video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Smbhnmue7Y
    My impression: drawing was the easy part, even for a not-usually-drawing person like me. The harder part was to structure the idea. Thank you for the inspiration!
