I recently finished these two sketchbooks, the first one was offered to me by Paperblanks. You can see here the article I made for them at the time, I had another sketchbook by the same brand. It is such lovely sketchbook, I just love drawing in it. But starting the begining of the year I also had the wish to learn watercolor more seriously and needed a sketchbook with real watercolor paper.
Unable to find a fitting sketchbook I decided to make my own ! I even made a video about it ( here ).
Let’s see what is inside these sketchbooks
My Paperblanks sketchbook is more about doing researches and having fun with drawing that are not supposed to be pretty but more functionnal.
And most of all, this sketchbook hold memories of what happenened during that time. For exemple this one was with me for 8 month, so I had time to reccord a few memories in it. Memories of projects, like blue beard, and also memories of days passed like these drawings done on a sunny day by the bicycle road.
The watercolor sketchbook was more about experimentations, trying to get the hang of some watercolor techniques and make my style evolve.
