The Sketchbook that I Kept

I haven't kept any sketchbook before when I was in my elementary years. I used to draw anything I can think of at the back pages my notebooks. And it made my mother angry at me every time she saw it, when she checked my school bag at home. But that's who I am. You can't stop me doing it, most often when I am bored or even when I am excited, or even when I am with somebody on the phone. 

Only one thing can stop me – "Hey! Where's my pencil?"

When I was in high school, I spend much of my money buying art materials and yes! of course – sketchbook. I can't recall how many sketchbook I've used and wasted. Some of it were forgotten and misplaced, sometimes stolen or borrowed and never returned.

I envy others which still now been keeping their sketchbooks. 
I have a friend before who still had her sketchbook since preschool and another one when she had taken a fashion designers course, she used it as her illustration for fashion references. Sometimes, I got to thinking, if I keep my sketchbooks before maybe I have a dozen of it now and a lot of sketches I might shared with you. 

And so I decided to get a sketchbook and a sketchpad now and promise to keep it for life. lol!

Here are few sketches I've done on my new mini-sketchpad.



according to Wikipedia

is a rapidly executed freehand drawing that is not usually intended as a finished work. A sketch may serve a number of purposes: it might record something that the artist sees, it might record or develop an idea for later use or it might be used as a quick way of graphically demonstrating an image, idea or principal. Sketching is generally a prescribed part of the studies of art students.

And it is often applied to graphic works done by dry media such as graphite pencil, charcoal or pastel. It may also refers to drawings done in pen and ink, ballpoint pen, water color and oil paint. A sculptor might model 3D sketches in clay or plasticine.

is "a book or pad with blank pages for sketching," and is frequently used by artists for drawing or painting as a part of their creative process.

  2. @T.R.Aurelius: Thank you for appreciating my works. Doodling is also a powerful kind of art. According to a study published in the scientific journal Applied Cognitive Psychology, doodling can aid a person's memory by expending just enough energy to keep one from daydreaming, which demands a lot of the brain's processing power, as well as from not paying attention. Thus, it acts as a mediator between the spectrum of thinking too much or thinking too little and helps focus on the current situation. Be proud of it, man. ^^
