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.

What are you drawing?

These are my absolute favorites to have in my purse. I love them for ink, gel pens and water color pencil. I love the thickness and creamy color of the paper. I have about a dozen full ones and another handful waiting in the wings. I love your doodles!

I love the inclusion and contrast of all the curves, angles, words and little drawings. What fun!

Your art seems to bring life itself into perspective, somehow, drawing attention as it does to things that are so often overlooked (and should not be) and lending a sharper focus to things that so frequently go unnoticed (and thus not appreciated) by non-artists like myself.

Lovely doodles as always . Regular watercolor doesn't work so well on the moleskine sketchbook but gouache works great
