Sketchbook Pages

caricatures in an artist journal

I enjoy looking at other artist's sketchbooks so I thought I'd share a few pages out of my current book. I use the books to record random notes, doodles, things that caught my eye or sketches of things I plan to explore further.

I love to draw robots and monsters.

The small drawings are ACEO sized. I keep these sheets of paper in my purse along with a Micron pen for quick sketches when I have small spaces of time. I discovered at Blick yesterday aluminum ACEO paper cases, sure beats a zip lock bag.

Jamaica is my favorite Caribbean island. Parts are very dangerous and should be avoided, the vendors are outrageously aggressive but I love the way people sing at the resorts while they work.
