#22 - Sketch Book Mechanics

The Archispeak Podcast becomes “The Cormac Show” as we revisit the art of sketching in Episode 22. This time around we converse about the tools. We review what makes a good sketch book and talk about the merits of using pens, pencils plus paper and trace. 

CorrectionCormac was right, the Blue Snowball doesn’t have a mute button.
