Sketchcasting

Blogging is one way to express oneself. You write you thoughts down for the rest of the internet community to see. I found this nifty site that offers a new way to express yourself creatively. Forget podcasting, videocasting and screencasting alike and pave way for Skecthcast.

What is Sketchcasting?

Sketchcasting is a new way to communicate something online by recording a sketch, optionally with your voice speaking. Any sketch can then be embedded on your blog/ homepage for people to play-back, and you can also point people to your sketchcast channel here (or let them subscribe to your sketchcast RSS feed).

Sketchcasting is new but it's based on an old principle: the whiteboard (or the napkin in a bar) on which you sketch something to get a concept across... or to just have some fun. Sketchasting was invented by Richard Ziade on July 23rd, 2007


What can I use sketchcasting for?

You can just let your ideas flow. Here are some examples, but don't let them restrict your creativity!

  • Create a tutorial explaining how boomerangs work (and why they don't always return)
  • Draw a doodle of your ex
  • Explain a math formula
  • Create a cartoon (you can use the eraser tool to make place for several panels of the cartoon)
  • Get a partner and explain a concept together... voice recording doesn't have to be used by only one person!
  • Write a love letter with lots of sketching inbetween
  • Create an online Chinese course and explain Pinyin writing
  • Create a masterpiece and show others how to draw
  • Explain baseball to Europeans... or explain soccer to Americans!
  • Create a riddle for kids: draw something and the kid has to guess while you're drawing
  • Draw a manga action scene
  • and much more...
So enough already, here's the link and start sketchcasting now!
