I have plenty of grease pencil sketches in my blend file. Is it possible to remove all of them very fast?

Short answer: Yes!

Press N, go to Grease Pencil and uncheck the checkbox:

This will hide all grease pencil sketches, while retaining the information in case you want your sketches back at a later time.

Long answer: In the Viewport press N and go to the Grease Pencil portion of the menu on the right.

There are several ways to remove a grease pencil sketch, you can just hide the grease pencil (the checkbox), you can delete a frame, you can delete a layer (the "X"), or you can hide a layer (the eye). You can use the RMB or use Shift+D to get the grease eraser. Use the LMB (or RMB depending on the method) to erase, and the MMB to change the size of the brush.

    $\begingroup$ Uncheck the 'check box'. Simple and effective :). Thanks a lot NoviceInDisguise Graphics! $\endgroup$ – Paul Gonet Nov 23 '14 at 19:24

You could also run a script to remove the layers after saving the .blend the sketches should be removed.

import bpy

for g in bpy.data.grease_pencil:
    for l in g.layers:
        g.layers.remove(l)

  • $\begingroup$ this seems to wreck the grease pencil for futrher drawing on the same blender session (not even opening another file will restore the funcitonality) $\endgroup$ – jsbueno Dec 7 '18 at 17:43
