I thought I was being quite clever when I came up with the idea for replacing my favorite but sadly exhausted Sketchbook from Heaven. My idea was to get a larger sketchbook and chop it in half so it more … Continue reading
Usually when I finish off a sketchbook, I have either a feeling of accomplishment because I’ve managed a few competent scribbles within or relief in that I finally put an especially irritating pad that I made the mistake of purchasing … Continue reading
