Sketchbook series v2

As mentioned in my first “Sketchbook series” post I said that I should probably share some pages of my sketchbooks seeing as I am a fond advocate of sketch books and peering into others sketches and pages. It’s a little scary seeing as this sketchbook is actually a few years old now, and you can really tell. My style has changed and developed and turned into something else entirely. Such as a journal or a diary these pages make me a little squeamish, I want to look at them from behind my hands. I feel pretty exposed by sharing these pages as they are in their rawest form without trying to do or be anything.
However it is also interesting and inspiring to take a look into where my head was at whilst creating these pages. It also is a nice reminder of ideas that have laid dormant and are now pleading to be made into better sketches and patterns and the like.

I have been thinking about starting the #100dayproject partly because it forces me to do something everyday, even if it seems silly and scribbly at the time. I want to be more consistent with my work and I also want to stretch my drawing muscle and allow my self to work more freely and not to try so hard to be and draw in a certain way. I can’t promise that it will be 100 consecutive days but I will try my hardest too. I have been posting loads of sketchbook peeks over on instagram using the hashtag #sariesketchbook.

I present you my 2013 self, in sketchbook form. (EEK!)

  1. I LOVE your sketchbooks. Even though your style may have evolved slightly – i think these are still amazing and still look very you! You’re really good at them. I’m useless at sketchbooks. As for the 100 day project… hahaha. I bailed on that one after a month 🙁 It was so hard to keep up with work and holidays! Oh dear. Maybe i’ll get back on it. You’ve inspired me with your beaut sketchbooks xx

    1. Oh Hannah! Thank you so much for your nice comment on my sketchbooks. They really are like diary entries though and look so clumsy and bad haha! I LOVE your sketchbook stuff you were doing. I totally think you should try and pick it up again (it doesn’t need to be consecutive days!) as your sketches have such charm and style. Thank you again xx
