My Sketchbook Shame.
For those interested, here’s a snapshot of what my sketch books look like.
I draw on 11 x 15 Strathmore Premium Recycled pads. I kinda have nightmares that one day they will stop making them, and black Pilot Precise Extra Fine Pens.
Anyway these are what my sketchbooks have evolved into. I very rarely use the page to do a complete anything. Its just a mass of scribbles and ideas, usually with notes. I’ve taken to writing “use this’ on a arrow pointing to something worth while at a later date.
This is almost always done with the pen mentioned above, a pencil, and a sharpie for blacks. Sometimes I’ll whip or a prismacolor gray.
Learning how to be un-precocious about my sketchbooks has helped me immeasurably. My advice— keep you sketchbooks messy.
