Sketchbook-Dec. 2016

Try to sketch every day even just a few seconds.

One day, I was tiding my drawing table and around this room. I noticed I have acquired so many sketching books.


4 books of A3: A couple of pages had been used(when I was doing Illustration course) and they were at the bottom of the drawer.

4 books of A4: A ring bound, a double clip folder and 2 of single clip folder.

1 book of 25.6cm*18.3cm recycle paper(再生紙): I bought it from Muji shop and I have finished another one (size:36.4cm*25.7cm). They are not regular size and same as thin kraft. I quite like this kind of paper and you can control your pressure on the biro and get special vivid outlines and effects. But I can’t put them in my handbag that is shame.

1 book of 19.5cm*13.7cm recycle paper(the first one in the picture above, from Muji): This one has smooth surface and 184 pages which I prepared for my handbag but unfortunately I  only put it in my bag about 2 days. Because it hasn’t  got  hard covers and should be used for a half year so I have to keep it neat in house for my off work day.

3 books of A5: A black hard cover with ring band, 160 gsm which is good for sketch by watercolour and dip pens etc. 2 single clip folder, one each in my two more usually using handbags. Then I divide A4 normal loose papers in 2 parts and clip them on my single clip folders and this is the best way and more useful for me.

Sometime I go to work by train and will be 15 minutes earlier so I use 10 minutes to do my sketch every time. But sometimes my time is taken by talking with colleague so I try to  recuperate when I get home. I did once done a little bit on the train but unfortunately then miss the station and lost much time for home.

Most time I just grab a biro even I put a small box of mini colourful fine line pens. So I am trying to get more medias for my sketching and try my best way and time.
