Some Old Sketchbook Pages





As usual I can't remember drawing any of these.

Sigh.... I know just what you mean about not remembering drawing work..I also am amazed how how good some of sketches I have drawn are too and wonder if I would be able to do that again.....

Totally! The one thing I am sure about looking through old sketches is that at the time I definitely didn't think "Hey, this is a good drawing". - Makes me feel kind of good though because whenever I think I am drawing total rubbish I remind myself that once I've forgotten about drawing it I'll most likely think 'Hey... where did THAT come from? I LIKE it!' :)

Oh yes-- these comments-- so true! It's as if we get visual fatigue or something with our own work.

Love the sketchbooks. :-)

:) Thank you!

I wish there was some sort of vault you could rent cheaply as an artist to keep all the old sketchbooks, I sometimes get a bit sad because after ten, fifteen years I always end up ripping the best pages out and storing them in boxes under the bed and putting the rest in the recycling :S I wonder if I should re-bind the good pages somehow, might be a good project!
