  • Drawing: Where the Rubber Hits the . . .

    Drawing: Where the Rubber Hits the . . .

    I’ve come across this video several times, but for some reason just never thought all that much about it. Until I realized that the artist is only using a piece of rubber. (I know that information is right there with the video, but . . . I’m looking at videos, not reading.)     I think the biggest thing I learned from this video — and I’m embarrassed to admit it — is that it’s too easy to dismiss the […]

    Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Happy Valentine’s Day!   I wanted to give you chocolates, but they’re really difficult to post. So . . . Thanks for supporting Best Drawing Videos!

  • Killing Time Artistically

    Killing Time Artistically

    How often do you find yourself having to kill time?  Like waiting in line or for water to boil? How often do you find yourself having to kill long periods of time?   Like in doctors’ offices or . . .  on airplanes? I don’t really travel that much, but I still feel as if I spend way too much time in airports and on planes. And I would never have thought of using that time to draw. But this artist […]

  • Espresso Yourself!

    Espresso Yourself!

    Back in October, I had a post on drawing on coffee.  It was pretty impressive, but . . . was it really all that difficult? Could a “regular” person learn to draw on coffee. Of course they could. I wouldn’t toy with future coffee artists. In fact, I even have two videos to get you started you. The first video is short and demonstrates how to draw a flower and hearts on lattes. If you want to try coffee art […]

  • If You Were a Sharpie . . .

    If You Were a Sharpie . . .

    Remember the posts “Generation Gap? What Generation Gap?” and “Can’t Afford a Lamborghini?”?  If you’re new here, they were about drawing with Sharpies. I love the idea of creating things (especially “artsy” things) with “ordinary” things, like Sharpies, And there are a surprising number of artists out there using Sharpies these days. In fact, Sharpies may have gone mainstream because what I have for you today is a mini-documentary on a Sharpie artist, Mark Rivard. Mark got his start drawing […]

  • Lagniappe


    A lagniappe (pron.: /ˈlænjæp/ LAN-yap) is a small gift given to a customer by a merchant at the time of a purchase (such as a 13th doughnut when buying a dozen), or more broadly, “something given or obtained gratuitously or by way of good measure.”    (Wikipedia)   I thought I’d take a break in the middle of the sketchbook mini-series and throw in some lagniappe art. If you’re new to this blog, you may have missed some of the posts […]

  • Two Hands Are Better Than One

    Two Hands Are Better Than One

    Xiaonan Sun is a talented portrait artist. You can tell that by looking at any of his many drawings. The video in today’s post, however,  shows something very interesting about Sun’s art that you can’ tell from the drawings themselves.  It  may, in fact, be the most interesting thing about some of his work. Sometimes he draws with both hands . . . at the same time. I don’t know what to say. His work is engaging enough on its […]

  • Sand Art That Can Move You To Tears

    Sand Art That Can Move You To Tears

    There have been a few posts here showing sand drawing. As it’s performance art, it’s a lot of fun to watch.  But even though this demonstration is wonderful to watch, I wouldn’t call it fun. In fact, it might move you to tears as it did some of the people in the audience. I’m always sort of dazzled by sand artists. I can’t imagine how they do a lot of what they do. . . while in front of an […]

  • Drawing in Water: The Transfer

    Drawing in Water: The Transfer

    Remember the drawing on water in yesterday’s post? I mentioned that sometimes the finished work — which is,  remember, all on water — is transferred to paper. I also mentioned that I’d show you a video of that being done, and I’ve got it for you today. How does he do that ? I can’t imagine making that transfer without ending up with a giant smeared mess. But . . . I guess when you know what you’re doing. I […]

  • The Exotic Art of Drawing on Water

    The Exotic Art of Drawing on Water

    The amount of artistic expression that can be found in the world, and that grows every day, is staggering. But almost as impressive is the number of ways of making that expression. I posted one of the more unusual means of expression, drawing on coffee, here, and I thought it was creative and fun and a “sign of the times” and all that. But it isn’t actually much different from a more traditional form of art: drawing on water (aka […]
