It's been a while since I've posted any sketchbook sneak peeks and I know that I always dig catching glances at other artists' roughs, so lets remedy that, stat!
First off, I realized just the other night that I've really gone through quite the sketchbook evolution. I remember back in college I used big 8.5x11" books or larger (I should pull some of those out for you guys to see--god awful drawings in those beasts). And then I got addicted to smaller books, probably because the pressure was off to completely cover a blank page in mindless drawings.
And now, I've discovered the wonders of the panoramic/landscape sketchbook. I'm in heaven. I like that the pages aren't so small that I have to constantly worry about space issues and yet aren't so large as to make me feel like I need to use the entire page. And because the pages are in a long format, I can get some lovely compositions--sometimes without really meaning to do so. I highly recommend picking one up the next time you see one at the art supply store.
Button mushrooms a'plenty... Sea anemones are so beautiful...yet just a hair creepy. All those wiggling arms....luring little fish in... And a life-size anemone? Yeah. I'm not so certain I'd like to encounter *THAT*. A tranquil octopus maiden...Giant beetles...
Good day, my friends! I hope it's filled with creativity and merriment!
