Sketchy Mondays

Heather Carr 2012 Art

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!

  1. 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

  2. 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
