Or how I can't resist buying sketchbooks.
These are great! In 2020, I went all in on writing long hand and letting my mistake-ridden drawings live their free lives out in the world. I even did the inks for my upcoming graphic novels with a dip pen!
Great sketches! I've started drawing more often in my sketchbook but I haven't resumed taking it everywhere with me. I shall change that now! :)
Thank you so much for the peek into your sketchbooks, James! Love this post. Also, the "I'm not dead" speech bubble coming from the flat chipmunk made me laugh. :-D
I do the same thing, James. I LOVE sketchbooks. About a hundred years ago now I had an everyday sketchbook habit and filled about 10 books in a year. I gathered all of my favorite sketches and self published a book of them, which was funded on Kickstarter. I miss that, but I'm not sure why I can't find time to do it anymore. (Though I guess back then I didn't have many projects, either.) Where's the happy medium!!?
DON'T share on instagram!? But it will be like it never happened! No, I kid. I am super guilty of feeding the insta machine. Thank you for the reminder to keep some things special for me :)
This is wonderful to see! Thanks for showing it!
