Inside My Sketchbook + An Architect’s Sketching Tools

A look inside my sketchbook as I start a new project and review my current favorite sketching tools. See my go-to paper, pens, pencils, markers; everything you need to build an everyday carry kit for sketching.
Instead of the chronological approach I’ve used in the past, I now dedicate entire sketchbooks to individual projects, tasks, or idea categories. This helps me to organize information and find it quickly when I’m searching for it later.

Topics discussed:
* Sketchbooks: what to look for in a good one
* Drawing Implements: pens, pencils (graphite + colored), + markers
* Accessories: cases, sharpeners, + erasers
And…a few ‘nice-to-haves’…

Nice pano on colors and materials. Yes Precise pens are great. I have an old Koh-i-nor mechanical pencil I love, but they don’t make them anymore I believe. I will have to try the one you use.

Just checked, no A5 dot available on the Muji site per your link , only A6. And yes, Amazon’s price of $17.80 is obscene! Will check later – perhaps you caused a mini-run on the product! :)

What are your thoughts on landscape architecture??

Fariha Feroze says:

hi Eric! though I finished arc school, my sketches are really bad. My teacher sarcastically compared it with Picasso sketching as it made no sense. do you have any suggestion for me ?

Scott Emmons says:

sweet!! stuff . .. . i asked about this dot flossed sketch paper in another video of yours — and here is the answer & many others just as desirable. i am not an achitect but a machinist teaching myself how to “sketch” and i think your videos are filled with wonderful teaching moments across many layers. thank you for these efforts & considerations to your complex audience.

Felix de Rijk says:

Love the video, in earlier videos I have always wondered which exact tools you were using… looking it up – without result. Thx! (btw the wooden blocks in the beginning, what are they called, you also showed them in your studio tour video)

Swarnava Banerjee says:

I use the Pilot V7 too…i feel it’s perfect for all kinds of work…I keep a V5 too just to do finer lines. But my drawback is that i don’t use any colours at all because I’m too lazy for that…!!! I have to correct this… Great video though…high quality as always…!!! Thank you…!!!

“wax poetic about erasers…”. I guarantee these exact words have never been spoken before.

Theodore Roosevelt says:

I wish you the best!

Fredrick Muthama says:

Nice work, really inspiring in this field of Architecture.
