Making Your Own Sketchbook
As you may know, I recently have been
involved in obsessed with regular daily sketching, doodling, and random mark making. The papers I’ve been using have been a variety of colors, textures and thicknesses. But I know I’m going to want to eventually bind them together for future reference. This instructional article make your own sketchbook is inspiration enough for me. I know I’ll want to do this. In the comments it was suggested that one could just take them to Kinkos or any print shop and have them spiral bound. That would be a great solution too. But for me, it would not be nearly as exciting or as personal as a completely hand bound book.
For those of you who like to watch over someone’s shoulder, here’s a really nice video. This link was sent to me by my friend Sue Cole, a reader of this blog.
Fun stuff to think about. Sue is a great resource for information on art projects, especially paper related projects.
I think this is definitely all due to spring fever. I’m not feeling very serious right now. I feel more like playing, and can do all this right outside on my screened porch while I listen to the birds.
