I realized that I've been doing these sketch books for over ten years now. Why not show some of the old stuff?
I call these Red Book sketches because the cover of the notebook says The Red Book and has Russian words. My wife gave me the sketchbook which she found in a nice gift shop. This was also from a period where I still used both sides of the pages. I have since starting drawing on only one side because the ink has a tendency to bleed through. However, the Red Book's pages were a good heavy stock, so I was able to draw on both sides without bleed through and now am able to show two pages at once. I like how the two sides interact with each other.
I am also reminded of a comment from a fellow artist when I showed him one of my sketchbooks. "I notice that none of the lines are scratched through," he said. "You don't worry about mistakes." I was surprised. Sketches aren't supposed to be perfect. They're supposed to be fast and dirty. There are no mistakes in rough sketches. It's all good.
