Moleskine Doodle Work

“After all, reading is arguably a far more creative and imaginative process than writing; when the reader creates emotion in their head, or the colors of the sky during the setting sun, or the smell of a warm summer's breeze on their face, they should reserve as much praise for themselves as they do for the writer - perhaps more.”
Jasper Fforde


Couldn't wait to draw the first lines in this new 5x8" sketch moleskine with heavy cream colored paper. These pages mark about two weeks of drawing at night and drawing while waiting at carpool. Until now, I've only used moleskines with watercolor paper and thin writing paper. I don't know how I missed this moleskine with heavy drawing paper.

Inventing all sorts of new patterns and designs. 

Amazing how inspiring a fresh new journal can be.

This was started on New Years Eve, hence the reference to champagne.

{More moleskine work to be shared soon... lots of drawing and some unsuccessful watercoloring experiments in this journal.} 

Happy news! I'm one of the 12 artists doing the 2012 Rhodia Journal Swap. We'll each do the equivalent of an entire Rhodia journal filled to overflowing - that's 1/12 of each journal each month. Learn about the participants in Stephanie's post at Rhodia.
