Just a note on this subject (ha). It wasn't that I hated
sketchbooks. I have a collection of the maroon cloth bound acid free
ones from college. It was just ever so hard for me to draw in a
book. I draw on everything. Unfortunately, although I'm disciplined
and draw everyday I am a scrap person. I use napkins, scrap computer
paper, business cards etc. I also turn my books around, and draw
back the other way, and find it hard to separate journal writing
with drawing. They are intertwined! Has anyone ever covered their
tables at school with white rolled paper and then kept them and made
a book of the drawings from kids? I always think of restaurants in
So you could have the classes of ? 2,000. Just a thought, might make
a nice time capsule from the art room.
