Flashback Friday

Today we’re diving into Sketchbook #7, which I worked on from November 2000 – September 2001.

(page 13)

Yes, it took me almost an entire year to fill this book. I think it took a long time for two reasons. First, it has brown paper, which allowed me to draw with a white out pen. Since I was drawing with black and white that means I spent more time per page than on my other sketchbooks that are mostly just black ink on white paper.

Second, I tried my best to make each page worthy enough to be framed. Of course, there are a few exceptions, but all in all I’d have to say that this is my best sketchbook because of those two reasons.

As you can see, all of these are “full spread” drawings, which is something I never seemed to do with my white paged books.

If you like drawing in sketchbooks and want to try some stuff with a similar effect here is what I used:
8.5″ x 11″ Recycled Sketchbook
Rapidograph Pen
Black Sharpie Fine Point Marker
Presto White Out Pen

Thanks for looking!
