Are they themed, or do you randomly select which one you will work in? I never used to collect sketchbooks because I just didn't use them, but lately I've been going a little nuts with the ones I have. I've got three going (which is a lot for me) and ideas for a fourth. :)
I have a weakness for sketchbooks too! I love the wonderful varieties that are out now. And I love filling them up with ideas and inspiration. I noticed one of your sketchbooks at Barnes & Noble yesterday - so cool to see your artwork in person! Thanks for sharing sneak peaks into your sketchbooks.
I'm the same way! I have a million sketchbooks and each one is used for something different. Some are for planning, one for collaging, some for little series that I'm working on. Some are actually used for finished pieces. And then I just keep buying more.
Inspiring! What a good idea to look at the big picture made from small pictures across space and time. Do you finish one book before starting another? Sometimes, I come across a new book and can't resist beginning anew with pages left blank in the old.
I was once told in order to draw, you must draw, in order to paint you must paint and in order to write you must write. Do what you love and do it often. It is evident in your sketchbooks that you are doing just this. Thank you so much for sharing these.
There is a saying "there is a method to this madness" only those understand artists would not say MADNESS but SANITY!@!! It's kind of like a walk down memory lane, like your dad's trinket box. Thanks for sharing!
sooo incredibly inspiring! this makes me so happy to see these pages filled to the brim with goodness. (and glad to know i am not the only one who has a weakness for keeping many many art journals!) xxo
I always thought I had a good imagination, but I find myself lacking in so many ways now I am looking at peoples blogs. I could never see any point in drawing just for the sake of drawing. I always felt I had to have an end result. I now have found that I have my sketch book going and I have had it for so many years barely touched. Now I am enjoying it. Thank you and so many other wonderful bloggers for waking me up Janice
