I keep sketchbooks quite religiously – I try and keep one on me at all times to record fleeting thoughts or ideas, to fill a gap in time or to record something I’ve seen. To write down new story ideas…I also use them as a way of trying new things out and learning through drawing. I’ve always thought that its important to keep drawing whether you are working on specific projects or not. Its important to keep drawing for yourself. So you can develop you way of working and push yourself. I have to draw or write something every day otherwise I don’t feel myself.
I’ve always been quite secretive about the contents of my sketchbooks but a good friend and fellow illustrator encouraged me to share them more this week.
So heres a few pages from my most recent sketchbook.
