Artst Tlk Sketchnote with Karim Rashid and Kenny Scharf


I tried a new method for the Artst Tlk episode with Karim Rashid and Kenny Scharf, using color pencils and markers. It takes a lot longer than watercolours but it's more precise. I was getting a little impatient, but I guess it's a good way to work on that aspect. 

The interview is really interesting. I'm a huge fan of Karim Rashid. I've been following his work for a while and love the way he approaches design : It's modern, fun and comfortable. I even had the opportunity to purchase his Oh Chair for a design project a couple years ago and saw one of his bar design in Vegas. One of the main statement I retained from him is the fact that whatever he feels he wants to do, he tries whether he's good at it or not. Judging by his success, it's a great way to approach challenge and create a great body of work. 

I'd seen Kenny Scharf's work before but didn't know who he was until I saw the interview. It's interesting to see two different approach to improving our surroundings and the various objects we come in contact with. Kenny's driving force is elevation from the mundane and making the world less boring. I think a lot of public places would greatly benefit from some of his art and break the monotony a little.
