Sketchbook Skool Begins

Sketchbook Skool is the brainchild of Danny Gregory and Koosje Koene.  The first semester started on April 4, 2014.  I enthusiastically signed up as soon as I heard about it and it turns out hundreds of other students all over the world signed up too.  It's exciting to be able to learn from some of my favorite sketchbook artists and journalers. I've been an off-and-on art journaler for several years, but really wanted to make it a more consistent habit and to learn about techniques and materials that I've never tried before.  

Here's the schedule:

This blog is the best way for me to keep track of the work I do and to see my progress. I tend to work in several journals at once, but I can keep things in chronological order here.

Some of my favorite art supplies:

  • Moleskine Watercolor Journal
  • Yarka St Petersburg Pan Watercolors
  • M Graham Tube Watercolors
  • Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens
  • Pentel Pocket Brush Pen
  • Derwent Drawing Pencils
  • Derwent Coloursoft Pencils
  • Prismacolor Premium Colored Pencils
  • Niji Waterbrushes

My favorite books about art, sketching and journaling are in a list with links at the bottom of this page.
