For many sketchbook artists Danny Gregory has been a major inspiration. I found Danny's book, Everyday Matters, several years ago and was intrigued with the idea of using an art journal to record daily happenings, etc. I was so excited to hear about Sketchbook Skool and signed up right away. Danny's class in the first week was a wonderful kick off. He has a sense of humor that comes out in all his work, but his videos are especially wonderful. You can even watch some for free, so check them out! I dare you to not be inspired to draw!
As you can see above, I am still figuring out my style and the sort of book I want to use. I'm sure it will keep on evolving for a while. The three above are in a 5 x 8 Moleskine watercolor journal. I have lots of small sketchbooks that I'm working in concurrently now. Maybe I'll decide on a favorite some day! I really like the Moleskine watercolor journal paper in the small size and this one. I'm not such a fan of the format. I wish they had a vertical format with the watercolor paper.
The above is a square HandBook Artist Journal. The paper in this one is not a favorite, but I am doing a daily calendar sort of thing in it, so I'll use it up.
PS- The actual ceramic bunny that I've depicted in the first photo is not blue at all. This is a take off completely from the lesson that Danny did. He drew his son's old paint spattered shoes that were black and painted them blue like this. I have wanted to experiment with using alternative colors on things like animals and people, so this is a start.
