I have just finished up filling my current sketchbook and wondered if you’d like a peep?

There is a trend for sketch booking at the moment, particularly doing something in it everyday.

I think sketchbooks can be a place to experiment, log thoughts and images and experiment without a necessary end. I don’t work in it consistently but have phases.

I feel like mine are an extension of my brain; a place to gather and record thoughts that I know will disappear in the busyness and constant flood of visual inspiration.

 I will often look back through one and pick up again on the way something was painted or a collage technique that I liked.

I’m a great magazine snipper too and can end up overwhelmed by bits of this and that lying around waiting to inspire me. Sometimes I’ll have a few hours really looking at them and asking myself what it is about the image that captures my interest and then trying to work that out in the sketchbook.

Often enough this kind of playing will result in a motif for a pattern too.

I began this book in September 2103 so it may be another two years before I can post like this again!
