Andreas Uebele's Sketchbook

Drawing is not an unreflective, casual activity. It is a controlled process— full of attentiveness, with a concrete intention.

The hand guides the pencil, discovers how its pressure on the paper changes the line. It feels the paper’s resistance, senses if it is rough or smooth. It notices that the pencil responds like a musical instrument when you change angle and speed. It understands: drawing is not an unreflective, casual activity. It is a controlled process—full of attentiveness, with a concrete intention.

The eye sees the line, sends a signal to the hand. A closed loop is created, generating understanding: now the hand knows if the line is straight or curved, heavy or weak.

Drawing by hand is an unmediated physical experience, a craft. It sharpens the feeling for form, it refines the judgement. Drawing is a beautiful discipline and a precise language for the designer.
