I am a illustrator who has always drawn. I’ve been keeping a sketchbook since I was about 10 years old and can’t imagine the thousands of pages I have filled. Lately I have been working in a new sketch book book, a brown toned hardcover book produced by Strathmore. I’ve been searching for months for a hard cover sketch book that is not white paper, I need something with a binding so I am not tempted to rip out a drawing and forget a failure. It’s important to keep all the drawings to show the progression to a liked drawing. The nice thing about sketchbooks is its an exploration and doesn’t have to be ‘finished’ like an illustration. It’s about problem solving and not creating perfect images. So I’ve decided to share some pages of my sketchbook in hope to get others to fill some sketchbooks of there own.
Incase anyone was wondering I draw with a simple pen and use a white gel pen for the white ink.
