I admire people with beautiful journals, and sketchbooks. I often draw and sketch on paper taken right out of the printer. The only flat surface not covered with a project (at least most of the time) is the small space in front of my computer. It is also one of the only places to sit down.
I sit there and listen to podcasts or music, and write down ideas as they pop into my head.This is where I keep them.
When I work on something I check here first. I have been working this way for a long time. I even write my artist way pages out on notebook paper loose pages that I grab from a pile.
On upcoming page I will show how I turn a sketch into a paper doll.
