Another One Bites the Dust

I finally finished off the juvenile sketchbook that I hoped would have the same magic as the Sketchbook from Heaven, but sadly, it did not. It wasn’t the worst sketchbook I ever carried, but at $3.00 for 150 sheets, you get what you pay for. The paper was thinner than some of the other cheap sketchbooks I’ve used up, and pages started to fall out towards the end of it’s use. Markers bled like crazy, and the water soluble ink wash pencils just were not going to happen.

BUT it was the right size for having close at hand to jot down some notes or scribble out a doodle. It wasn’t magical, but it did what it was manufactured to do.

My Sketch Book was bought for me from a department store as a Christmas gift in 2017. I cracked open the book and starting drawing in it on September 30, 2018 and finished it off May 8, 2019.

    It’s weird. I know what constitutes a good sketching surface having worked in art supplies for a number of years and having shopped them even longer, but I don’t know if it’s a good sketchbook until I’ve sketched in it. I’ve had expensive sketchbooks that I should burn and cheap ones that make me feel like a genius. I’ll have a couple of the same make and model in a row, and one is great and the other uninspired. Must be me.

    The search continues.
