Something that is sketchy can also be described as incomplete, fragmentary, vague, imprecise, imperfect, hurried, and hasty. All those things could describe my various sketchbooks too. I often draw when I’m half asleep and totally depleted from my day.
I love looking at artists’ sketchbooks, even when they aren’t fancy, but just fragments of ideas captured on paper. So, I’ve decided to try, once a week, to share some sketches from my books. I hope you enjoy them!
If you are looking for an interesting book on artists and their sketchbooks, check out An Illustrated Life: Drawing Inspiration from the Private Sketchbooks of Artists, Illustrators and Designers by Danny Gregory. Love this book!
Thanks for stopping by!
You know what book I totally love? Street Sketchbook by Tristan Manco. It is art from the sketchbooks of street artists from around the world. I have An illustrated Life, as well but I don’t love it as much because most things in it are so “normal” and I am so NOT! LOL
Oooh, I love street art. I’ll check it out. Sounds like a book that needs to be added to my art library! Thanks, Sunny. And thanks for stopping by.
I’m enjoying your sketch blog… a reflection of the joys/frustrations of daily life along with the escape into the fantastical! More, please! Diane
Thanks! You should see the really frustrated illustrations… 😉
