Rap, stick figures and watercolor: 5 YouTube channels worth watching in August 2022

What do animated videos explaining how machines work, miniature games, watercolor lessons, icebergs, and urban culture have in common? Our selection of YouTube channels for August 2022.

At Numerama we love videos. We also have channels on YouTube, Instagram, TikTok – you can find us there. But we are also happy to see content from other authors. Since 2016, we have been offering a monthly selection of YouTube channels. You want more ? So feel free to browse our archives!

Thomas Schwenke

Have you ever wondered how everything works? Automatic transmission? Clutch? Wind power plant? Disc brake? Fridge ? AK-47? Thomas Schwenke does too, but he doesn’t just do it: he also gives explanations through animated videos that are several minutes long. Enlightenment!

French War Games Studio

This is a channel that fans of miniature games like Warhammer will love. The French Wargame Studio channel provides battle reports, guides, and live streams of character paint. Obviously, it is better to know a little about this universe in order to take full advantage of the channel. But if you’ve read The White Dwarf before, you should be there.

Watercolor Shibasaki

We don’t often post non-French videos, but that doesn’t mean we have to deprive ourselves of a few nuggets. It is worth dwelling on Shibasaki watercolors in more detail: we are talking about Japanese art teacher Harumichi Shibasaki, who films himself giving watercolor lessons. So take your easel, canvas, brushes and paints, and go!


Do you know the concept of an iceberg in video games? It is a way to visualize the gossip, legends and secrets surrounding the piece. The deeper you go under the surface of the water, the more stories you come across… amazing. Farod offers various videos on his YouTube channel, but his dive into Super Mario 64 and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is surprising.

So how do we like fashion and urban culture? Daidi Toki too. On his YouTube channel Urban Bloc, the videographer shares chronicles from the world of rap and style – Nas, Aya Nakamura, DMX, Rihanna, Drake, Childish Gambino and others. The only pity is that the channel has not been updated for a long time. But the content is enough to keep you occupied!
