A Drawing as Long as Me! || Accordion Style Sketchbook

This video is sponsored by Skillshare. Okay. Hey everyone. How’s it
going? My name’s Peter here we have a sketchbook that I’ve been
working on for a while. We’re about, well just over halfway through right now
and today in this video we’re going to put about 15 hours more worth of
drawing into another page spread of it. And then at the end I’ll do another
even slower flip through so we can see everything we’ve accomplished so far. Oh, uh, by the way, before
we get started here, I do want to thank Skillshare
for sponsoring this video. Uh, they make it possible for me to keep
doing art like this. They’re kind of like, they’re kind of like the Pope and
I’m kind of like Michelangelo. If the Pope was a website with thousands
of high quality instructional videos, and if Michelangelo was like some guy
sitting in his apartment doodling on long scraps of paper. So if you’re interested in those
high quality instructional videos, if you want to learn how to
illustrate whether it’s digitally, traditionally landscapes,
portraits, typography, they’ve got other stuff too check it out
and get two months premium content free with a little link in the description
and it’ll help me out. Thank you. All right. All right, let’s get down
to this. All right. So as I mentioned before, this page spread here did
take me about 15 hours. I know that only because I recorded the
whole thing that that’s about how much recorded footage I had. Uh, obviously I wasn’t drawing
nonstop that whole time, but I think it’s safe
to count in, you know, bathroom breaks, stopping,
stretching, you know, blinking things like
that into the total time. Because if it was a real
job, if I clocked in, I wouldn’t clock out to go to the bathroom
or to blink or stretch or anything like that. So, um, yeah, 15
hours is about right, obviously that is a long time. I didn’t
do at all 15 hours in one day. Now, I might, I could maybe if I planned it outright, if I had my food ready and uh, I’ve got to say I’ve had a bucket there,
but no going to the bathroom counts. I think I’m definitely capable
of drawing for 15 hours if I, if I really get into it cause I’m
definitely capable of getting into that. There’s different things people call
it, right? The flow state or the or the, you know, getting into the zone, kind of
losing yourself to the art to drawing. And it’s not only art that you
can lose yourself to. Um, in fact, I think if you’ve ever driven
somewhere before, especially if it’s a, a drive that you do fairly often, have you ever left the house and then
driven to work or to school or something and then you pulling into the parking
lot and you’re like, wait a second. How did I get here? Did
I run any red lights? Did I run over any people? It’s a little bit different when it comes
to drawing because I remember all the lines I draw, but what I don’t remember
is all the time passing. Sometimes I can sit there for hours
and if I think back it will feel like just half an hour or 20 minutes, which is a great thing for
me because sometimes, well, sometimes the days feel too long
and sometimes they feel too short, like I have too many things I want to get done too many lines to
draw too many errands to run too many, too many of this to any of that, and there’s only ever 24 hours in the
day and of course I have to spend some of it eating some of it, sleeping, some of it in the bathroom, you know, it’s 2019 and I feel like we should have
figured out how to eliminate some of these necessities from our lives. Right. I guess that’s why people invented things
like Soylent to try to minimize the whole eating thing, but just the fact that that hasn’t
caught on more than it has just I guess it speaks for itself. Right. There’s some people out there who like
have a Soylent for lunch or anything, but there’s not a lot of people who exclusively drink Soylent unless
they’re doing some weird, you know, challenge to try to prove it
to themselves or everyone else, how cool they are or how much they
don’t need food or, I don’t know. It’s kind of expensive
to compared to right now this is what I do actually.
I’ve recently changed it, but for a while I was
eating veggie burgers, two veggie burgers every
day for breakfast. Um, I started trying to switch to cereal, but cereal doesn’t sit as easy on my
stomach as veggie burgers for some reason. I just feel great after having two veggie
burgers for breakfast and I don’t know why it’s so good for me. I mean, I don’t know if it’s actually
good for me because I, you know, that’s also four pieces of bread, right?
Tell me, is two veggie burgers a good, is that healthy for me
two veggie burger patties? Obviously I’m not telling
you the nutritional
information, right? You’re not, you’re not reading the
back of the package. And then there’s two whole grain buns, which has four pieces of
bread cut in. You know, cause it’s two buns cut
in half. And then I put, I liberally apply a real
Mayonnaise and Dijon mustard. I feel like if anything that really
the mayonnaise is setting it off, that stuff has got to
be fatty or something. But I eat those and
then I’ve, I’ve kind of, I bought some like honey
bunches of oats with almonds, honey roasted or something. And I’ve been eating that
with almond milk. Right. So it’s like extra almondy
and it’s just like, even just like an hour later,
I’m already hungry again. Getting like some weird kind of heartburn
or acid reflux or just some sort of kind of digestive feedback. I don’t really not really know
what all that kind of stuff is, but I just don’t have as
good of a morning as when I
eat the veggie burgers and obviously can we all agree that the
idea of breakfast foods is a farce? It’s a, it’s a myth, right? Why? Why can we eat sausages for
breakfast and not eat hamburgers? They’re almost the same thing. They
just taste slightly different don’t you think? You can’t say because one is more dense
or something. We eat breakfast for dinner, why can’t we eat dinner
for breakfast? It’s just a, it’s a cultural, you know, trend.
But you can do whatever you want. I may or may not continue eating cereal
or I may or may not continue eating the veggie burgers. I kind
of go through phases. For a while I was getting lots of lots
of brussels sprouts with my veggie burgers later in the day
or chicken tenderloins. Uh, I wouldn’t eat chicken tenderloins with the
veggie burgers but I don’t know why I’m telling
you so much about my diet. I’ve already told you all this by
the way. I don’t remember. Anyways, I switched from the brussel
sprouts just to broccoli also I heard that I read somewhere
that broccoli was something
we recently invented. Maybe not as recently as edamame, but like, it’s not like, it’s not like a naturally occurring
thing that’s been around for a long time. I casually heard that somewhere and
didn’t follow, I didn’t bother to look it up any further. So someone should just go ahead
and confirm or deny that for me. Or you can say, you can say, I cannot confirm or deny
the origin of broccoli. Well, that statement doesn’t make much
sense, but you know what I mean. Anyways, I’m pretty happy with how
his drawing turned out. I usually say that at some point in the
video I say a bunch of stuff and then I go like, yeah, I don’t know what else
to say. I should talk about the drawing. And then I say I’m pretty
happy with how it turned out. I am. Got some more bulbous
people in there, uh, different postures. I could add some with multiple arms. I think maybe I need to change up the
number of limbs on these bulbous people. That’s an option. Well, look, I just want to keep my diet simple
and healthy and I don’t know. I’m sure. Look, some of you are dying
to give me diet tips right now. Hey, go ahead. Fire away.
Give me diet tips. Um, I know that a good important
part of a diet is variety, but that’s the part that
discourages me the most. Cause then that’s what makes
grocery shopping a huge chore. Right. I like to be on
a good grocery shopping, just buy a lot of a couple
things and buy those a lot of couple things the
same every time. That’s all. That’s all. Cause every time I go, I just
grab a bunch of veggie burger patties, the same buns, the same
Dijon mustard, grey Poupon, the same Mayonnaise and then some, some chicken tenderloins and some
of this, some of that, you know, it’s just like pretty straight forward.
But should I just grow up? Should I just grow up and learn to
grocery shop like a real person? Get some variety in my diet? Is that the healthiest? Is that the real
answer? Or am I just running away from the truth? I dunno. Anyways, goodbye
everyone. Have a good day. Thanks for watching. Okay.
Alright. Goodbye. Goodbye.

  1. I've been watching you for awhile, I just wanted to say that your work is incredible. The fact that it's all 'stream of consciousness' is very impressive and your style is wholly original to boot.

  2. evry time this dude just starts to talk and talk about nothintg and everything at the same time i just feel like i get him and he gets me, is weird but i love it

  3. I sometimes have vegi burgers for breakfast too. Homemade soup is also lovely for breakfast though it can be a bit of a faff having to heat it up. Serial tastes like sugary cardboard and most toast doesn't taste much better.

  4. I don't like cooking much. So my usual breakfast involves some raw stuff. Something like this.
    A pepper, a cucumber, a tomato, a couple slices of toast, olives, cheese.
    If I feel like preparing a breakfast cooking things it would be like the same thing and also an omelette or boiled eggs.

    Anything else like cereal or an apple and a slice of cake or name anything would make me feel hungry within an hour. It's definitely about culture and habits.

  5. Blown away. Incredible. Bellissimo…
    yes… yes you should grow up a bit. How about a steak? Fish? Shrimp? Oysters? Crab… try a protein that isn’t prepackaged in almost ready meal form? Yet broiling a steak or cooking it in butter is quite easy.

    If you can draw those refined details. You can certainly cook those things above. Mmhmm.

  6. hey peter im not a nutritionist or anything bu your breakfast sounds fine, unhealthiest part about it is the mayonnaise, depending on how much you use.

    as far as i know variety is less important than just eating healthy, for example eating the same bread, fruits and veggies each day is better than eating different fast/junk food each day.

    also almost everyone with a regular diet lacks certain vitamins, minerals and such so you may want to supplement that,
    i take a pill every day that has almost everything you need,
    however i still try to get as much as i can out of regular food since vitamins from actual vegetables is better than a pill.

    sorry for the long comment and thank you for the great video and commentary

  7. I want to like have a picnic with you and like 3 others where we just share what food we like with eachother and just draw underneither shaded trees
    That's the vibe I got from this video

  8. You should go for the world record of the biggest drawing. Some girl did it. And barely put any detail into it. And it took her like 12 hours and you easily have double if not triple or more than that in this.

  9. My diet plan for lazy.
    Egg with rice. Egg with bread/toast. Egg with bacon. Hard boiled egg. Egg –> Omelette. omelette with an infinite variety of toppings.
    And thats my attempt at have varied diet.

  10. I love how your brain flows, it does not rest when thinking. It moves. You accentuate momentum my friend. Keep up being you

  11. Love your drawing! You’re amazing! Veggie burgers—or in my case hamburgers—with mayo and mustard and any sort of greens is great for breakfast! I’d eliminate the buns, and minimize the cereal. If you eat what’s in season you get enough variety, no need to change it up just cuz it sounds mature. Yum! 👍😊🌈

  12. The secret with cereals is to prepare them and keep them in the fridge over night(s) before eating. That way they become much more wholesome. Search for "Bircher muesli" to find good instructions of how to do that. It has a fantastic taste and is filled with all the good stuff. I also use plant based milk for that. I personally wouldn't eat/drink/slurp soilent. These are assembled nutritions without any heart and soul – overpriced and convinient.

  13. This drawing and this video were so good at helping me calm down and stay grounded. Thanks Peter! You have an amazing talent

  14. The burgers are fine since you're using whole grain/whole wheat bread. The mayo is fine but I would cut out the cereal. Carbs affect your hormones more than any other food, they're the most addictive, and that is the reason you are still hungry afterwards. So when you do eat carbs you only want slow digesting carbs (whole wheat/grain) and unrefined carbs like fruit. These are good for your heart too. Ultimately don't eat white bread, sugar, and anything processed and replace more carbs with fat and protein. You'll feel better, satiated, and it's probably the best way to lose weight. Your cravings will vanish if you stay the path for at least a week.

    Awesome work btw!

  15. how about,you try something new every time you go grocery shopping?like buying a lot of a couple different things one week,a lot of a couple different things the next,and so on.

  16. broccoli resulted from breeding cultivated brassica crops, and comes from italy more than 2000 years ago (roughly the sixth century bc. apparently 🙂

  17. I love this guys process, but I'm curious what he uses for references, and how he builds compositions from various sources. I can't believe there's no references at all! I've seen great artists showing us candidly how much their art improves with a reference vs without one, and there's too much detail in anatomy, mechanical structure, and shading to be completely without reference!

  18. If you want less mayo then maybe you can try avocado. It tastes pretty good on a veggie burger. My current diet is basically the nutritarian diet.

  19. He was talking about having variety in his diet and I was sitting here like "yeah maybe" as if I don't live off of spaghetti and pineapple most of the time

  20. I eat tortillas filled with greens, different veggies, beans with tacospices and guacamole most days. Because thats easiest to me and contains alot of different things.

  21. I don't think eating anything everyday is good no matter what it is. A varied diet with as many different natural colours in it as possible, is best. If your plate of food is all natural and brightly coloured, it's probably healthy. Maybe you can try one of those mealpack services, or do your shopping online and get it delivered. Where I live supermarkets offer menu packs where with one click you can add all ingredients for a meal to your basket.

  22. This one looks like Gahan Wilson meets Jim Woodring meets Maurice Sendak. Brilliant work. Already mind-blowing but I'm imagining it in color on my bookshelf.

  23. I've never really found someone who eats regular foods for breakfast. I, for the strangest reason, very much dislike eating eggs and pancakes and such in the mornings and it usually upsets my stomach if I think about it too much, but I eat stuff like lasagna and chicken patties for breakfast all the time.

  24. First of all Peter you're so good at drawing it's incredible. now the whole thing about breakfast food, same thing happens to me when I eat cereal I find it's not really filling. I would try oatmeal, I find that it's a lot better then cereal. Eating veggie burgers for breakfast is a lot better than eating regular so you got that!

  25. I think Steve Jobs was one of the most determined, driven people on this planet. He lived off of apples (no joke) for large stretches. I've heard you mention a love for apples. I, too, love apples. Diet greatly impacts the ease of achieving a flow state imo

  26. this accordion sketch book is coming along nicely! IDK about two veggie burgers for breakfast, thats living dangerously. You keep this up and you might need to get on the Gerson Diet. It involves lots of organic fruits and vegetables, and maybe but chugging some coffee? I guess its a thing.

  27. Honeslty the veggies burgers are proly better for both digestion and satiety then cereal..
    Cereal is basically just carbs which your body breaks down really fast whereas the burgers have more fat and/ or protein which breaks down slower and keeps you feeling more full longer.
    And it's better to eat high protein and fat in the morning to kick start the day and then carbs closer to bed so it doenst upset your sleep.

  28. Dont grow up. I wish l you didnt post content.

    Thank you for your reference to Michelangelo and the Sistine Chapel the Pope. The history there. Such a great story.

    And Solent.
    This must be my favorite episode.
    If your bowls can handle the veggie burger do it. Agreed dinner for breakfast.

    I like oatmeal, almond milk, small amount of coconut sugar. (Oatmeal has naturally occurring melatonin to help me sleep)

  29. Late comment here:
    We don't eat big foods like lunch or dinner for breakfast, mainly because our stomach is conditioned to need something small. Stuff like pizza or hamburgers for breakfast can do a number on the stomach.

  30. Were food is concerned someone in history has had to try it to know if is edible or not, some have even died in the process. What is good for one isn't good for another. Enjoy eating the food you like, because what's the point in buying food you don't like when it would be wasted. I never understood who created the set meals either. I say eat what you want when you want x

  31. my parents sit down every saturday morning and make a plan of what we are to eat for the following week, starting with that saturday. and then they make a grocery list with that meal plan. this minimizes the amount of time you spend thinking about what you're gonna eat. and it makes grocery shopping easier. or so I've been told. I've never been able to do it, as I am incapable of planning the next ten minutes of my life, let alone a whole week.
