A few experiments with red and blue pencil
GUESS WHAT DAY IT IS
I got a new pentel pocket brush pen and am re-learning how to use it so DOGS
Witch Houses and Snacks
Playing! Practicing. Learning?
Bunch of sketches that I made sitting around in airports and whenever there was a free moment last week.
I posted a bunch of sketchbook, pages, these are some of the better ones, really excited about this blue pen someone super super nice gave me for my birthday.

I bought two of these little sketchbook moleskines probably 2 years ago and never really got around to using them, this one has maybe the first 4 spreads filled over that time, so I finally decided to start using them and have actually been having a lot of fun.
Just made a blog post collecting the skateboarding warm-ups I’ve been posting on twitpic recently along with some other stuff I’ve drawn. Click-through and check it out.
I bought a new sketchbook today, and was thinking about how I’ve heard a lot of people say “draw something stupid or just scribble on the first page so you don’t feel anxious about having it be a perfect book because it doesn’t need to be” or something like that.
I just went straight into drawing with hardly a thought and this came out of the col-erase pencil I was using, turns out the book I bought was never meant to be a sketchbook because you can’t get to the next page very well without ripping out the one above, it’s a pad, who knew!
I haven’t had a real sketchbook in a couple years, I’ve just been using copy paper either folded in half and stapled (maybe 12 sheets per book) or just loose sheets of it so I forgot what it’s like to keep a sketchbook (and I guess I’m not about to find out)
What kind of sketchbook keeper are you? Do you try to make every page “finished” or do you just scribble on the first one and use the rest for practice/play/experimenting? Or are you like me and just use scrap paper for everything?
