More Sketch Journaling

More pages from my sketch journal. Can you tell I’m really enjoying this?

Here is the day I saw the red hourglass mark so clearly on a black widow spider. Which was also the same day my sister gave me a little blue and white sugar pot she made.

Or this page that records some gourds I bought as well as my son’s critique of yet another sketch of him. And yes, he reads at breakfast pretty often. Bonus point if you can guess what he’s reading here…

This spread records a current favorite book in our household: Jonathan Crow’s Veeptopus: Vice-Presidents with Octopuses on Their Heads.

Some journal pages are inspired by artists whose work I admire. I don’t set out to do them this way, it just works out like that. Like this sketch inspired by Cathy Johnson. My daughter sketched with me that day, which always doubles the fun.

And then there’s this spread which started out with a whole lot of separate pencil and pen sketches that didn’t really hold together… so I decided to tie them together in a wash inspired by the lovely work of Lynda Gray.

Here’s a piece about journaling that I read in the New York Times today. And while it doesn’t refer in particular to sketch journaling, I think it’s still relevant.

    I’m loving these pages – they’re so appealing. And I like the colour palette of most of them, nice organic choices, with a satisfying range of natural intensities. Keep ’em coming! :^)

    I’d like to be this talented! I like the idea of combining the sketching with the quotes – like a kind of journal/sketchpad hybrid. Nice to open my wordpress and see this work pop up. Avri.

  7. Nice journalling, I like the ones with the vegetables or gourds or whatever they are, as well as the mountain with the weeds.
