I have started a sketchbook!
Just recently I came to realisation that the last time I use a sketchbook seriously is when I went to university. I remember that I did take a sketchbook out and tried to get into it several of times but lost interest in the end.
With my three years old business, I have forgotten to paint or draw for myself and for the sake of fun. I only sketch when I have ideas or need new designs for my products, I actually use rough papers or battered sketchbook and bury them in the drawers when they are not needed anymore. I am a bad bad artist. So I popped in Paperchase on the other day and got myself a Moleskine sketchbook. I want to fill it with delightful drawings that are purely for me. If it gives me ideas or could turn in one of my greeting cards, then cool!
I have decided that I am going to share pictures of every page on my Instagram, even if I don’t like what I’ve drawn. It would be interesting to see how it turns out and whether I will be sticking with it or not! I really hope I will as I know it is a healthy practice for artists.
Do you sketch religiously or will you join in getting a new sketchbook and start drawing for yourself?
