The life of a sketchbook
Each sketchbook is special, but there are a lot of things they have in common.
Always included are its date of birth and death and a list of its greatest achievements.
It’s also a nice place to be messy and ugly.
Below, I was struggling with drawing dogs, deciding what stars looked better, and what people should be doing in a forest.
There’s also bound to be math. Making books is as much a creative effort as it is making economical use of paper. I also make little mockups for cuteness and to ensure it feels good to use.
Not such a bad life for a sketchbook. :)
