Sketchbook work is something that I have a renewed commitment to over the last year. Creating pieces in my sketchbook has really freed up my subject matter since I started working in it again. It has also been a great way to play with a wider variety of materials. I tend to use either a regular Moleskine, a watercolor Moleskine, or a paperblanks book.
Rather than sketching my surroundings, I draw inspiration from things around me but treat my sketchbook more as an incubator for ideas. I use these pages to develop characters, experiment with subject matter, and to use materials I don’t normally use in my larger works. I use it as a place where I can draw without fear that what I make will be too weird or a failure.
Selected sketchbook pages are available as fine art prints through my Society6 shop.
