Sketchbook 1 by merkymerx Sketchbook 1 by merkymerx
I've done quite a lot of sketches in the past but I could never seem to keep them all in one sketchbook. They always end up in different pads, scraps of paper, boards...So I promised myself that this time I'd keep all of it in one book. I got myself a Moleskine last year. Still quite far from being full but it's getting there :)

***

I decided to draw Lady Gaga this one day. We were going to help some people out with a Lady Gaga themed costume so I decided to do this for a bit of inspiration. That particular outfit is my favorite look of hers. Screencapped a part from Bad Romance and used it for reference, trying to be very loose and free with my lines.

When I drew the little lightning bolt on the left page I was suddenly reminded of the houndstooth pattern. I always thought it looked rather pretty but I never examined how it exactly worked. More ideas for drawings and sketches ^^

This sketchbook of mine also serves as a very light journal. I just write down whatever I feel and what I'm going through with each drawing. :)

More to come!

I love people's personal journals/sketchbooks. Maybe one day when we're all famous artists they'll be worth something!

I find it really hard to find journal's to sketch in, especially plain pocket sized ones. I've just been checking out the Moleskine website and I think I might buy one for art-on-the-go and to banish my never ending pile of post-it notes! Thanks for the idea! :)

I looooove which bits you choose to render and which you don't. I don't know! It's probably random to you but damn. That's hot.
