I have actually managed to fill all of my small sketchbooks! This is a great feat that I am very happy to have completed however it left me without a sketchbook...odd sensation. I was dappling in the unlucrative art of book making for awhile and decided to make myself a new one. After a battle of the sopo it is complete and here is its cover.
I have been feeling a little out of sort lately. I have been working on some projects and have been making me feel a little stale in the art department. I know this is silly because all my free time is taken up by art. I guess I am used to having some amazing breakthrough every couple months from school, but right now I feel a bit like I am in a couple of styles with no real new developments. This is fine, but I thought evolving as an artist meant some change. Anyway, I am going to take a class Tuesday evenings. It's just figure drawing, but I think I need a change of pace. I am putting too much pressure on myself to be creative, clever, and Milton Glaser. If I like the class I might see if I can find an illustration class somewhere in this big city. I want to get assignments and do weird exercises. Anyway, for now I am going to go work on the projects I do have and maybe cut some more paper.
ps- I am in the market for a sketchbook that has paper that can handle watercolors (because who can have too many sketchbooks!). I would prefer something cheaper than watercolor paper, but with the ability to hold color and not fall apart...and preferably at least 50 sheets. Any suggestions?
