what would michelangelo do?
So I spent the afternoon looking for a new sketchbook…geeeeez, do you know how hard it is to find the ‘perfect’ sketchbook for all occasions? I’ve been searching for days on end, scouring shelves and shelves stacked with an endless variety of sketchbooks. You’d think I’d find something.
And it’s also kind of silly, considering I’ve already more than one sketchbook (although, they do serve different purposes):
- one intimate bedside/dream journal for end-of-the-day reflections and rants and for quick morning sketches of ethereal dreams remembered upon waking
- a medium-sized sketchbook for lesson planning/prepping for art classes and other random design projects
- a perfectly-petite travel/pocket sketchbook to catch random creative spurts that stream out of my brain case. You can find it laying around in random places, like on the coffee table, on the kitchen table, in the office…(not the bathroom, though).
- and then there’s the random loose-leaf sketches: perhaps on a scratch piece of paper; on a crinkled napkin, or two; or from a spiral-torn, colleged-ruled notebook. All, of course, loosely stuffed into any of the above-mentioned journals…
