I am constantly impressed by artists whose sketchbooks don't look at though their brain barfed all over their Moleskine pages. I just got a new one--keeping track of coasters and bits of Stonehedge paper was becoming too much of a hassle--and so far it's been addicting, but also very...messy. I know that's the point and all, but still I'm surprised at how often these drawings will to lead to more visual problems than they solve. Anyway, a few samples below. For inspiration I've been looking at the utterly fantastic sketchbooks of Juana Medina and Wendy MacNaughton and the folks at the Sketchnote Army to see if I can learn a thing or two.
I am glad that one my my favorite UK illustrators (not that I have a running list of admirable British illustrators or anything, but if I did, he'd be on it) is having a show at one of my favorite galleries in London (again, no list, but I did go there a few times, and met the owner, Andrew Coningsby, who was lovely).
