Sketching is fun, but at Sketchbook Skool, we also approach keeping sketchbooks as a way to document your life. Artists throughout time have drawn what they witnessed, and when drawing, they imbued their artwork with their own emotions. Art is as powerful as a photograph to share aspects of life, and our shared human experience.

In this SketchBook Club, Danny shows you sketches made during times of war. There’s no doubt they’ll stir a range of emotions within you—and that’s the power of art.

Some of the books Danny discusses are available here:

Ronald Searle: A Biography

September 11 2001: Words and Pictures by Veronica Lawlor
