I'm a constant carry creator. Always with my sketchbook and supplies. These days it generally consists of water soluble pencils, Microns, a Derwent waterbrush, and two types of Pentel brush pens. I'm in a constant state of learning, whether it be a new product or medium, new means of execution or plain old research. I have a whole room with various supplies and tools dedicated to art and I'm fortunate enough to have found a husband that supports me and has at times been integral in helping spark an idea. I'll usually have multiple pieces working at the same time, it's a mix of still in active process, absolutely hate it-but can't burn it cause it's a part of me, circle back at a later date and see how and if it still needs more, and or re-do completely. Of course I also have finished pieces, but I tend to overthink and overwork, so i'm in a constant state of thought as to whether my work will ever really be done. Who knows, at the very least I was doing something that ultimately made me happy-Art!
As this is my first sketchbook project, I must admit it was nerve wracking-but only because i'm the one that made it so. I didn't like the paper for the medium I intended to use, so I ripped it out and rebound it (first time binding) with 90lb mixed media vellum, but got a bit big in the britches due to the quantity of pages. I originally had a game plan with plotted out pages and thumbnails- then I scrapped those and attacked my book the way I normally art in my daily life. By that, I mean utterly annoying my husband...love ya babe...by casting aside my plans and blindly opening my book with no regard to front or back and finding the next blank page to spew my weirdness onto.
Can't wait for the next project! Thanks for making this a real thing that anyone can take part in!
