My sketchbook is my practice pad. I draw, paint, write, take notes and refer back to those pages when I’m working on other projects. I also use the sketchbook as a springboard for my creativity. I discovered that drawing and painting jump-start writing engine. I access words more readily after playing with pen and ink, line and shadow, color and tone.
I don’t claim that these are masterpieces in any stage of the making. They inspire me. I hope they inspire you too. Art for its own sake is art, for, well, its own sake. But it’s for ours, too.
