All new doodle sketchbooks

So, here it goes I ditched the other sketchbook and started a new one - to be fair I have only done two pages of this sketchbook so far that are finished - there are another five started (got an idea for the next after starting previous - bad habit which must be controlled hehe)

Here is the first page - Emma will know my circle obsession too well  and probably understand the importance of this as a first page for me.

Sketchbook Update; it's nearly finished!

After that incident where a sketchbook was destroyed damaged, I started to collage the pages that I managed to save into a new book and draw on the remaining pages. 

You guessed it! This worked out in my favor as now there's only a handful of pages left!!

I'm already making plans for a new sketchbook, using this blog as a way to pressure me into working on something each week has been great at getting me motivated, but I felt that this book was/is going all over the place.  So I'm planning some ideas to get me trying out new ideas and materials too.

Goodbye old sketchbook *waves*

Right my last couple of weeks have been hard work - but no excuses for the lack of work I hold my hands up I have not done much at all *sad face* - except a tattoo design which has been occupying my attention.

Due to terrible motivation I have decided that you are about to see the final drawings for my current sketchbook as I started a new one today for a fresh start (by start I mean I located one in the mess that is my art piles). I will hopefully start drawing tomorrow *fingers crossed*

Hopefully where this one has come to a bit of a dead end and put a fair few of my other mini drawing projects to an end, the new one is for different things like a whole sketchbook of doodles maybe - using my new pens hehe.

Dilema! (sketchbook troubles)

My sketchbook had a rough time this week...

Long story short, the pages got crushed by my water bottle in my bag.  You know how all books have those amazing covers you know to 'protect' the pages, yeah that's were my water bottle snuggled itself into an optimized place of destruction.

I'd like to say that I'm devastated, but honestly I'd had enough of the paper quality of this sketchbook about three days after starting it.  I am sad to loose some of the drawings in there (I managed to save quite a few though) my plan now is to use a half use a new sketchbook* and collage into it the pages I managed to save, and start fresh!

Spirograph comes to my sketchbook

So the other week I won a spirograph set at a fair - being the child I am decided to relive my childhood and go spirograph crazy here are a few of the patterns I created that I fell in love with:
