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!)
