Happy Labor Day!  How about some killer speed-art to inspire you today?

Graphic designer and creator of GOLEM, artist LRNZ (aka Lorenzo Ceccotti) has been hard at work making amazing waves with his work in all sorts of illustrative fields lately, but even a proven talent needs to practice to keep those creative muscles limber.

A while back, he posted a series of 1-hour “warmup sketches” on his Youtube channel, in which he set a time limit to finish an original piece of art from scratch, most digital though a few on paper, which he would capture and condense into short time-lapse videos.  And they are fascinating to watch!

There are 30 of these exercises posted to date, and perhaps when he finishes his current massive project (more on that soon), he’ll post some more!
