I have to admit that this my New Years resolution this year was to develop the discipline of carrying a sketchbook again, that intimate collection of my thoughts, ideas and inspirations. To that end I actually bought a new sketchbook and carried it around for a few weeks with my laptop before abandoning it unused beneath a stack of unread art magazines.
So to inspire me today to renew my commitment I did a search of some sketchbook pages here on DA and was incredibly impressed. I realized that it is an art form in itself.. the sketchbook page a wonderful insight into the working mind of the artist that creates and nurtures it. What a great window into the creative process, inspiration, insight and technical skill of the artist who develops it. The beauty of the simple sketchbook is it is a record of your daily life, travels, experiences, thoughts, etc. What a wonderful record of your journey as an artist.. a great place to experiment with new concepts, ideas an techniques in safety.. t
