Putting ink on paper

I’m trying to get back into the habit of drawing every day, even if it is small. I’ve realized now that some skills are not like riding a bike. They are more like riding a bike with no hands and then trying to replicate that trick in your 40s; you will have a bad time.

A while ago, I bought a Canvas phone mount intending to use it to stream drawing. Attempting to stream wasn’t working all that great so I have now been using it to record drawing sessions and make that footage into timelapse videos.

I have used some of these dirty vhs effects and sounds before. It turns the videos into some found footage of someone drawing super fast. This vertical format means I can make one video and upload it to YouTube Shorts, Instagram Reels, Twitter, and TikTok very easily.

It took me a little while to develop this concept, but now that I have a rough template in After Effects, I can put them together fairly quickly. I don’t feel like I’ll make these every day, maybe 1-2 a week. Which means I need to get going on this week’s video!

Here are the final drawings, both Ed. 25, 1 tez (if you’re into that thing).
