SKETCHBOOKS! … what are they? What are they used for? Who Can use them?
Sketchbooks can be a great thing to work in, especially if you happen to be a visual thinker. It’s a great space for you to scribble down ideas or even collect images or write notes. I think the best thing about having a sketchbook is when you finish it. The feeling you get when you look back through it and see how expressive you can be. The sketchbook in itself becomes somewhat a work of art. The nice thing about working in a sketchbook is that they don’t need to be neat or perfect… you can practically do whatever you want to do! No drawing skills necessary. 😉 …Working in sketchbooks for me is quite therapeutic at times when i just wanna be by myself and can in fact help ,me de-stress. All sorts of people use sketchbooks as a way of thinking and working out ideas, from artists and designers right up to architects but the truth is… anyone can start their own sketchbooks.
Now, as an avid user of Pinterest, I’m always collecting images of other sketchbook examples that I can use to help inspire me and spark new ideas for my own sketchbooks and actual artworks.
I hope you find these examples somewhat helpful in beginning your sketchbook 🙂
