this past week I spent some time in a well known copy & print shop that I do not really like so I will not give them ad space here. I live close to 3 colleges and there were a few students in and out while I was there. There happened to be a few art students with their sketchbooks and it reminded me that I haven’t kept a proper sketchbook since college. Of course I jot things down and draw here and there, but I have not put in the time and effort I did when I was in school. Here are some examples of what I used to do::
the whole thing got me to thinking, are blogs the new sketchbook? I do spend a lot of time on my blog and other blogs and it is a venue for expressing thoughts, ideas and creative juices, just like a sketchbook. Here are a few images from one of my favorite blogs, heysusy. She has designs she is working on, sketches, and inspirations images. All things integral to a sketchbook.
now, I do want to concentrate on getting my sketchbook back up and running because I think that there is nothing better than putting pen to paper or paint to paper. But I’m, going to give myself a break because I have a blog and it’s the sketchbook for the internet age.
