Messy Sketches: 2-Minute Robots

9 (Very Quick) Pages.
Tools: fountain pens, markers
Paper: Moleskine Classic Notebook (5″x8.25″, 70gsm, Ivory)

This is my “Messbook,” a throw-away sketchbook that I use for demos and sketching experiments. It’s small and cheap(ish) so I never feel like I’m wasting a page, even when I’m completely reckless. Right now, I’m working on a 2-minute design exercise: create a quick, interesting silhouette with a medium gray marker, then rough in the details with a black pen. Each sketch should take 2 minutes or less. The goal is to generate lots of concepts without investing a lot of time, materials or emotions in each one.
