We love browsing through sketchbooks and often we find the sketch much more powerful than the polished, ‘cleared’ end result. That’s why at The Art Department we are devoting a part of the festival to this theme

This year you can be part of the prigram! If selected, your work will be shown during the free online livestream of the festival. In collaboration with ArtStation.

During the years we organized The Art Department we got the chance to not only meet you all but also browse through your sketch books and portfolio’s and discuss your work and process.

Since this year hybrids version of the festival only allows us to meet a limited number of artists and creatives, we thought of way that we can reach out to you and have a look at what you are up to.

We are looking for time-lapse video’s of you sketching. Because it is all about the process… We wanna see you finding that perfect line 🙂 It can be done with a time lapse of a digital image ór that you film yourself while sketching ‘old skool’. For this part of the expo we’ve teamed up with the good people of ArtStation! ArtStation is not only an amazing portfolio site, it also gives artists the opportunity to breakdown their process and gives room for not only the end results, but also the art of sketching and experiment. They have devoted one of their channels to sketching!
