I originally posted this on my MySpace blog a while ago (Saturday, June 02, 2007). Reposting here for your enjoyment, and to kind of explain the next post!
In my last entry (** Ignore that! -CK **) I mentioned that I never have time to draw. It’s still true, but I remembered what I do have time to do. SKETCHBOOKS!! Cyrus Highsmith (my independent Type Design teacher) loves sketchbooks, and, since he’s kind of famous and awesome, I thought I’d give them a whirl.
My sketchbooks turned out to be more of a collection of things that I, uh, collect. I collect things that I think are visually interesting or funny or weird or stuff that I just like. Realizing I needed a place for all this random inspiration, I started taping this stuff into my sketchbooks.
So really my Sketchbooks are Things That Inspire Me Plus Some Ideas That I Have.
Here are some pages from my first, and most complete, sketchbook!
