Daily drawing/sketch for March 2nd.
I bought a new sketchbook while I was in Canada. I was going to invest in a new moleskine, but I found a new brand called “Ogami” which implements stone instead of trees to make their paper.
I’ve recently finished up my current moleskine sketchbook, so I cracked into my new Ogami sketchbook tonight… The pages are really soft, almost has a velvet texture to them. I’ve discovered, however, that the pages are extremely absorbent and it tends make any lines made in ink smudge and feather out… It’s kind of a shame because I was actually planning on using this sketchbook particularly for doing ink work in, but I guess it’s okay because although it doesn’t pair with ink too well, it takes graphite really nicely. With graphite, I’m able to make really crisp lines and get various shades out of one pencil.

I’ve arrived back in California last night from my trip to Canada! It feels good to come back to warm weather, but I’ve had such a good time in Canada, I will certainly miss it…
I’ve purchased this little treasure at an old book store along with an Edward Gorey book! At first, my friend and I thought it was in a different language, but it turns out that all of the letters in the book are encoded; the first page decodes all of the letters into english…. I think it might have been like a game book for kids back in the days?

Today was a good day! I wish I got to work on this more tho…let’s see if I could finish this little drawing up by Friday!
After this, I should really start trying to work on some bigger pieces and work around with some pastels and watercolor and shtuff. I mean, I’m really having a lot of fun with experimenting and just drawing without boxing in my imagination.
I might not be producing any real pieces right now, but I feel like I’m finally really getting to explore my style and options. It feels good. It feels right. It feels like progress.
YEAH. :- )
