There are so many styles of the moleskine books that I didn't know existed. I found one on the moleskin website for a wellness journal. I need this! Then I also saw one called a Japanese moleskine that folds out. Pretty cool if you want to have it like a book but yet you can open it up for one big scene. I think I need to fill up the one I bought before getting any new ones. :-)
The more and more I think about the sketchbook project, the more I think I might need to give it a try! It would be cool to have one of my sketchbooks travel the world. To bad I wasn't going with it! I went to Hobby Lobby today and bought me a book about drawing 3D. I liked doing perspective drawing in school but when it came to drawing a still life, it was a no go! When I looked at other drawing books, it seemed more for someone who already knew the basics. I thought I might check out the local library on some drawing books. I also found out when they have the drawing class at HL. I need to check my work schedule and then sign up for one! I think working with someone first hand will be helpful. The before and after pics of what the students can draw gives me hope! :-)
The one thing that bothers me about the sketchbook project is you don't get your book back. You can pay an extra $20 for them to digitize it and it might show up on the Brooklyn Art Library website. I thought I might try to scan or take pictures of my book myself. If I do this, I might just make it a feature on my blog of the trials and tribulations of making my first sketch book!
