these are some of my past sketchbooks. i am posting them to remind me that i haven't been very good about producing them for a while. it used to be that i worked in my sketchbook every single day. and now i can't remember the last time i did more than jot down some quick ideas. we just got a shipment of recycled sketchbooks in the shop at sk3tchbook! they are from ecojot, a canadian company, and have nice kraft paper covers. i think while i am at the store today i will start one. i usually have the policy that i start one on a date, and must end it one year later. that way, it stays at least a little fresh. i don't allow myself to work on it after the one year mark, and that keeps me from over thinking an changing stuff too much. a little more authentic.
we also changed out the floor plan at the shop. now tom has a space to work on watercolors. it looks really nice. i always like to do a floor move. it makes everything seem all new and different. i used to do this with my room growing up. and it was so cool to sleep in that new room for the first few weeks. maybe i need to not only work on sketchbooks. maybe i need to also move the furniture around in my house. shake things up a bit, get the groove on.
