I'd love to teach people how to sketch if the opportunity ever happens. Wish had known 30 years ago what I know now about concept sketching.

The Art of Concept Sketching
I occasionally get to work on lettering for book and magazine covers. I enjoy this as I get to create elegant letterforms and they all start with very rough quick sketches. It has taken a lifetime to learn how to sketch in the practical manner of jotting down ideas. Everything gets refined in vector format and there is no need to spend hours on a sketch to exchange ideas with a client. This is one of the best forms of direct client communication in the daily business of lettering.
