Like many artists, i’m heavily reliant on my sketchbook. I was in 3rd grade when I started my 1st sketchbook. Back then, I strictly used them as a book of drawings. I was very keen on only using it for illustrating, and these illustrations had to be complete and perfect. As I got older, I became less rigid about this device and now I use my sketchbook for just about everything. Within the pages you’ll find poorly handwritten notes, ideas, sketches, plans, etc. All of these elements are conductive to my process and serve as a transparent form of record keeping that I can accurately reflect back on.
