Sketchbooks


I've been keeping these little red moleskin datebooks as sketchbooks for the last several months, after getting one for Christmas last year. They're nice because they fit in my back pocket. Easy and unobtrusive. I've posted drawings and strips from them at the Holy Consumption for several of my most recent installments of Sunday Services, including the upcoming one. I recently did a mini interview about my sketchbooks and my work generally with Julia Rothman for her blog Book By Its Cover...which is worth a spot on pretty much anyone's bookmark list. You can see the interview and some other images here. The image above is a drawing I did of a nice girl I know named Heather. The one below is an audience member at a panel on comics criticism at SPX in Bethesda last October.

I'm a huge fan of sketchbooks that fit in the back pocket. I used to love Apica but the shop that sold 'em here in Milwaukee stopped carrying them. I'm going to have to check out that datebook. Beautiful work.

i bought my first moleskin sketchbook a few months ago and have gone through 2 already. the pocket fitting feature is a huge selling point. it's just so damn convenient.
