Moleskine Traveler

So I'm just back from a few days in Ireland. Thanks to blogger drafts you wouldn't even know I was gone. Haha.
I finally got a small Moleskine sketch book for myself. It was more out of necessity than anything else. A quick preflight trip to the artstore and hey presto, new sketch book.
I never bothered with them before 'cos most of my sketches are done on cheapo copy paper. And then there's that thing about drawing on something which may restrain you for fear of sketching something crap. Well I saw it, and it fit in my pocket, so what the hell. As long as I promised myself just to think of it as copy paper and not have a burden of "oooooohhhh, it's a Moleskine. I'd better be careful." Anyway, the next few posts will have images and thoughts from the new sketchbook and my trusty brush pen.

This girl was waiting to board the plane.

I just bought my first Moleskine sketchbook within the last month.

I'm with you, never kept a sketchbook, but until recently I started carrying them everywhere. It's actually a good thing to practice.

This drawing, is exceptional. Very nice brush work.
