i hate, i mean hate, the first page of a sketchbook. the pressure seems to much to bear. how can i make the first page good so when someone asks, “can i see your book!” i am not embarrassed? the first page is a first-impression, the first-glance, the introduction. so i just skip it.
so on this first page of a new sketchbook i sketched my tools. i’ve seen other artists do it and i wanted to give it a try. plus i swap inks so often i forget which is which!
