Here are some behind the scenes photos. My sketch books are some of my best friends, I love them and always carry one about with me. Every year I get a new one, so the pile is steadily growing. It a great way to look back on the year before and see all the work you’ve done, perhaps to remind your self in a “down” moment that it’s all worth while in the end.
I love filling the pages with bright colour (yes I know I must sound like a small child 🙂 and I am almost afraid to count how many packs of pens I get through. I draw everything is these, custom order designs, new ideas, ancient art studies, flower studies or just plain doodles – I often draw whilst watching a film after diner. Most don’t get as far as the silk scarves or notebook covers but they’re there waiting for something one day – even if it’s just to give me a pick me up or dash of inspiration.
In way I think sketch books (and notebooks for that matter) can be very personal, as I know I often draw without a purpose, just letting the pen trail over the paper. I know that means that my head is full of spills and odd shapes, but that’s not too bad. Do you have a sketch book? What sort of things do you draw?
Have a creative day!
