One of the best places for a shy person to meet people
One of the best places for a shy person to meet people is in a coffee shop. If you are a reader, bring a book and read it there – that gives a guy something to ask you about. Same goes for sketching, writing, or any hobby you can take with you.

Laurie Helgoe
Sketching is almost everything. It is the painter’s identity, his style, his conviction, and then color is just a gift to the drawing.

Fernando Botero
My job ranges from creating the initial overall theme of the season, to developing fabrics and sketching to sampling and fitting.

Nicole Richie
Few people know that I am also an artist; I truly enjoy sketching and drawing.

John Katzman
I spend a lot of time in a sort of free state when I’m writing in the beginning and sketching.

I always carry a sketchbook around with me, and I sketch whenever I can… I might be in a financial review and be sketching because I find that I actually listen better when I sketch. Truth be told, there are probably more sketches in my books than there are written notes.

Mark Parker
I never look at my watch when I’m sketching!

Karl Lagerfeld
Electric Gypsy’ was really raw. I was literally sketching out the lyrics as they walked in the door. I jumped up and had a sheet of paper and I showed them the chords, which are simple. We counted it off, I got the lyrics off the sheet into the song and played a solo at the end – done!

Mike Campbell
Sketching is like dancing. It’s process as much as product. You can turn your head off and just sort of dissolve into the now. Doing a giant, super thought-out painting is the opposite of that.

Molly Crabapple
I became interested in photography when I found my own sketching was inadequate.

Ben Shahn

Siegfried Woldhek
I was born in 1935, and as far back as I can remember, I was sketching designs. My first subject was an aircraft, which I imagined myself piloting.

Drawing is the only thing I’ve found in which I can lose myself completely. I love it. It started as something that relaxed me, but now it’s a struggle because I’m pushing myself. The day-to-day sketching is fraught.

I’m born with a pencil in my hand. I did lots of sketching.
