I thought I would show some more journal covers that I had decorated this and the previous year
This one is from the beginning of this year, I had divided into sections with some beautiful patterned papers I had purchased from Coppenrath; for – lines and textures, shapes and forms, abstract and graphics, decoration, notan and value plans, comps and color notes, ideas and designs and notes. A page from this book:
It’s almost over, I have another one now which I am intimidated to start even after keeping so many sketchbooks , this one I am hoping will be more put together, with my thoughts and ideas more synthesised, that’s why the name ‘network’..
Another one is a Leuchturm diary, a day a page, it’s huge , some 400 pages A4 master (the others are of 234), I love it, I do whatever I feel like first thing in the morning, journal, draw, sketch, take notes, color notes of the changing light in the day etc., it’s only 100gsm but it takes markers and pens well, practically no bleedthrough at all. These past two years have been tough for me and I am glad I could channel some of my energies this way, by journalling. The cover which is inspired from butterflies and moths and two pages from this book, I like the second one, it looks complex but I haven’t ‘thought’ about it, it just came about: particularly the past year I think I have become a lot better at compositions:
The one above, is inspired from a piece of beautiful Arabic calligraphy, I use for writing, analysis of master artist’s works , a project list , what works I want to paint and how etc
This one (above , cover is impromptou) was also good, one from the previous year, just jotting down random ideas, inspirations, meditations see what I am really excited about and what I want to really, really paint and do, we have only so many years to live!
The beginning of last year, part diary part notes, part sketches and ideas.
This year I got two paperblank calender weeklies, I am using one as a tracker , the other one which has a vertical layout I don’t like so much. For the last two years I found I didn’t like the unstructurality of the bullet journal for routine tasks.
Also, I have a couple of smaller moleskine A5 size ones , collage sketchbook, I will post a few pages from those and the above ones in the coming few weeks. Hope you like them!
Got some moleskine sketchbooks the other day, love the pages! Here is my first entry, felt inspired to make some textures to get the look of a jungle. This is with a pigma brush pen, love the fuzzy edges it makes.
I was doing yoga when I saw this pattern of light and shade made by the tree on the wooden floor. As I was staring at it there started to appear the most beautiful glittering colors in the light areas. I ran to get my sketchbook and some faber castell metallic pens, here’s the result:
