Whiteboard Video Scribing with Cartoons and Illustrations by Ian D. Marsden

Whiteboard Video Scribing with Cartoons and Illustrations by Ian D. Marsden

Do you have a product or a concept that you would like to explain in a visually interesting and memorable way? I can write, storyboard and illustrate a custom made presentation for you, which can be displayed on your home page, YouTube, Facebook, TV and at seminars, exhibitions and trade shows. Video scribing is the hot new marketing tool.

Whiteboard Videoscribing Videos

While the narrator talks, a live hand draws images to underline and highlight the points that are being made. Because the hand is always moving and the images are expanding and changing, the viewer stays interested.

Concepts that might seem a little dry, technical or complicated on paper or in powerpoint text blockscan be interpreted in a new and visually appealing but also easily understandable and highly memorable way.

The illustration style can vary GREATLY. From humorous and cartoonish, to clean and elegant line art. Please see Ian D. Marsden’s on-line portfolio for various art styles and a PDF Portfolio for download.

Whiteboard Animation Videos

You know those really cool marketing videos you have seen on YouTube and at trade shows and in commercials? The ones with the hand that draws while the voice talks?
Drawings appear and continue on and lead to the next drawing and they explain your product or your concept in a way that would be very hard to do, even using much more complicated and expensive methods. These videos are called ‘whiteboard animations’ and they have been proven to be very popular and also very effective in grabbing and keeping the viewer’s attention.

I can help you with and create everything for you, from: Concept/Idea, Storyboard, Illustrations (in various styles), Sound and final HD Video with moving drawing hand.

My name is Ian Marsden and I am an internationally published illustrator and cartoonist and I have had the great pleasure to work on some high profile projects (About Me) and create artwork for some big name clients. Please have a look at the many different art styles I work in, each one could be applied to a white board animation as well. The range could be from serious and classy to funny and silly, depending on your needs and desired mood of the video.

For the elements that are not created in house I work with industry leading partners whose work samples will blow your socks off.

Pirate and Parrot: Realtime Cartoon Tutorial YouTube Video

Pirate and Parrot: Realtime Cartoon Tutorial YouTube Video
Artist: Ian David Marsden

In this brief video I am doing a rough freehand sketch of a pirate with a parrot on his shoulder. Hard to tell from the drawing which one of the two has a higher I.Q. I have to admit. Safe to assume that together they might not quite make it to 100, but that doesn’t matter. They are lovely individuals and they have hearts of gold. The parrot however is slightly distressed, because he misplaced a winning Euro Millions ticket, but that is another matter entirely.

I hope you enjoy watching the video of their creation. :)


The final result. Watch the Youtube video below to watch this drawing in real time.
I am working in SketchBook Pro software on a Wacom Cintiq 21UX screen.

By the way I am also a featured artist and Wacom evangelist on the official Wacom website.

And I have a bunch more tutorial videos if you are interested. You can view them here.

Character Designs and Storyboard Illustrations for Commercial

Character Designs and Storyboard Illustrations for
“Super Reed”
Commercial and Website


Some examples of character designs and rough concept sketches and layouts for a TV commercial. Artwork is created based on the agencies’, client’s and art director’s briefing and the characters are developed in a process of multiple design phases.

This project was a lot of fun to work on as I could play with the character ‘Super Reed’ who is already outrageous and funny and I could also live out my personal fondness for 00 and Bond villains as well as creating some other ridiculous super heroes.

It’s great when your ‘job’ is what you love doing anyway. :D
