Sketching is more popular than ever, but busy lives leave almost no room for sitting down with a pad and pen, and practicing. Many people give up on their potential hobby (and artistic outlet) because they feel they just don't have the time to lay the groundwork. Here's a secret though: you do have time each day to practice, you just need to incorporate sketching into your daily life. Sketch Now, Think Later covers the tools, techniques and tips that author and Urban Sketching Correspondent of Boston Mike Daikubara has developed in his more than 15 years as a practicing artist, and will show you how to fully dive into any sketching situation with limited time and tools, and still be able to produce memorable, great looking, fun sketches!

I have purchased many art books over the years and this is my all-time favourite. I refer back to it often. It rightly advises that the best way to enjoy sketching and get good at it is to get out there and do it. It begins with excellent advice about a simple and portable set of tools to use and get to know very well. It also recognizes that sketching a living and moving world rewards quickness, which also helps fit sketching into a busy life.

The book is very informative and holds nothing back in terms of specific suggestions for materials, subjects and techniques. Yet it is also very well organized and avoids overwhelming the reader.

The author's tone is friendly and encouraging. He is a superb sketcher and the book contains many examples of his work that are well connected to the text. More examples of his work and other information are to be found on his website. My favourite quote from the book encourages sketchers to dive in, trusting to instinct and experience and the feeling of the moment: "Don't overthink; you know what to do."
