Introducing the new issue of the Stylefile Blackbook Sessions series, there is once again an update from the most diverse sketchbooks and desks in the scene. From simple studies to detailed full-pagers, whether analogue or digital, everything is included on 160 pages. For some, sketches are merely a necessity and a means to an end, while for others, they are an independent discipline in the field of graffiti. What all of them have in common, however, is that you have to deal intensively with the process of sketching in order to develop your own style. How wide the range of approaches is can be studied in this book. It provides exciting insights into the approaches of the most diverse types of writers. Insights that would remain hidden from most people even in the age of social media.

Sketches in graffiti have always existed. A white sheet of paper and a marker have been the starting point of every good style for years. In the beginning, sketches were only done with normal pens, but soon professional layout markers were part of the writer‘s basic equipment. This was then the measure of all things for decades, but in recent years, new possibilities have helped this genre take another relevant leap: With acrylic markers, it is now finally possible to work with opaque colors and no longer have to use only white paper as a background. But the leap from analogue to digital has also been made by now in the field of sketching in graffiti: Tools like Procreate have recently formed a completely new basis for a whole generation of writers to create works of art with letters. You can notice that for many writers, sketching has established itself over the years as a discipline of its own within the field of graffiti. Due to the expanded technical possibilities, the question of when a work can still be declared a sketch and where a canvas begins can no longer be answered with a clear distinction. For another part of the scene, however, sketches are still a necessity and a means to an end: to further develop one‘s own style or to have something for the next production on the wall or train. What all of them have in common, is that you have to deal intensively with the process of sketching. How wide the range of approaches is can be studied in this book. It provides exciting insights into the approaches of the most diverse types of writers. Insights that would remain hidden to most, even in the age of social media, and that we can now show to a large audience!
