Carrying a sketchbook with me is a great way to jot down ideas for use later on. The only problem is there’s not many out there that are to my liking without paying a hefty price for it.
When I’m almost finish with a sketchbook, I tend to make them instead nowadays.
A) It’s cheaper than buying pre-made.
B) I get full control on materials I like.
C) I get to make it in arbitrary sizes that they might not carry in stores.
I’m kind of glad the Thanksgiving/Black friday thing is off the table. No more cooking, and no more shopping for computer parts that will be allocated towards my super computer (which will be showcased on a blog entry along with a blog-house warming of my little 7.5 ft X7.5 ft workspace on a future date)
I finally got some time to work on The Sketchbook Project.
the picture is taken on my crappy cell phone camera…why you say? because I want you to go see the real book when it’s done : ). Trust me, It looks a lot better than this image here. Until then, 3 pages down 26 more to go.
silly me. i was going through the oodles of sketchbooks that i have to work up on some sketches for homework and i found some drawings i did for Drink and Draw event at 3rdward.com that i never posted.
The Drink and Draw event was fun. I didn’t go overboard on the drinking though. i wonder how my drawings would look if i really pushed myself a little more. Anyone want to join me next time?
i knew i was somewhat productive, but not having anything to show for it made me feel empty. Looking back at all my sketchbooks proves me wrong at times. They may not be finished pieces, but there’s so much rich information in there that i knew if i didn’t jot it down at the time, i would have forgotten it all together on what could have been an amazing future piece. you can say they are the keys to my mind.
speaking of sketchbooks. i made one recently! more to come about that on the next entry to come.
