The Potato Binder! Part 1
So the Potatoes and I wanted to show you all how we keep everything organized! When creating so many Potatoes, it’s important to have a safe and organized way to keep them all together! This is a little tour on how we do just that!
So we don’t use anything fancy to keep everything organized. It’s a simple Mead Five Star zipper binder! The same kind you’d use for school, except instead of it being crammed with old home work assignments, it houses a system which keeps everything in one place for the Potatoes!
And here they are! Each batch of Potatoes rests inside of 4x6 Photo Pages, since that’s just about as big as they get! From this point of view, you can spot everything I use to get the Potatoes drawn. I use Artwin double sided markers for the marker work, and Noor Hardtmuth Polycolor pencils! You can also spot precision scissors, Faber Castell eraser, a pencil sharpener, and Scotch double sided tape! Everything is used in the process of bringing out Potatoes!
Oh hello Lil’Peeper! He’s gonna accompany us through the rest of the tour!
There’s a flap on the inside of the binder that houses some of the other things that we use to get things going!
Lil’Peeper here shows us the contents inside! You can spot some additional binder clips! I have a bag of bigger ones as well. These are used to help keep Peepers in place, especially in windy situations! Next to them you can see a zip bag with paper scraps. I collect these every time I create a Potato, just in case we need some additional paper in the future to create more support systems for the Peepers. Below that is the sketch book used to pop Potatoes out from the Potato realm, some sticky labels, and an extra 10 sheets of 4x6 photo pages!
The front of the binder has a convenient zipper to store a ready amount of binder clippers, both large and small!
Stay tuned for Part 2 of the tour!
