Front pages of my sketchbook. :)
The Mushrooms on the left are Jack O'Lanterns (they glow in the dark! Well, the real thing does.)

Inky doodle on the left. Unfortunately, this ink + moleskine paper = likes to soak in and spread. Going to try it with Dr. P.H. Martin's next time.

I love sketchbooks... Unfortunately I'm never happy about what I'm drawing on them, and there's never a happy result^^ yours makes one want to leaf it through, I'm admirative :)

Oh, thank you so much! :)
Though I think every artist feels that way about their sketchbook, since it's so personal. I end up feeling too protective of it as an object, and not getting as experimental as I wish I could... Trying to shake that up a little in this new sketchbook.

I understand perfectly, my sketchbooks look so... immaculate when I buy them, I'm terribly afraid of waisting them. I'd like them to be objects of art for themselves :)

It's tough! Those beautiful clean pages... Sometimes, I open into the book and start near the middle, so that I don't get quite as caught up on what the first page looks like. That's about all that helps, though. X) It's so easy to make it precious.
Maybe I'll try doing an ink wash on the first few pages next time, mess the book up a little before I even get to draw in it.

Start in the middle, that's an idea! You draw beautifully though, you shouldn't spoil anything. I feel that the quality of my art is something quite... random.

Thankee! :D I love working in black and white with ink. I hadn't in a while, so I think I poured a lot of that love straight into this piece.

Those are kick-ass (the mushrooms, I mean) ... I had never heard of them before.

I love them! :D Though they are poisonous, sadly.

lol, I know, I read up on them. My favourite part was "... which is further complicated by the fact that the aroma is rather appealing. So appealing, in fact, that various reports of second and even third poisonings have been recorded by individuals who were tempted to try them again" ... Made me lol so much!

I know! X) Plus they glow. Glowing and smelling good and *maybe* it won't kill me? It's good I've never found one, I might not be able to help myself! X)
