moleskin sketchbook

Page one ..... drawing in my new moleskin sketchbook [ the one that Lynne Hoppe gave me ]

I'm thinking I will draw in this everyday
a drawing every day .... or so .... [ ha ha ]

This is an old lady
the words are taken from an old book [ title of book is called Dreams ]
I like the words even though I don't know what the heck it means

drawing > I used pencil , ball point pen and colored pencil .

It is so freakin' hot ....... I am NOT happy about this
I know you probably like this .... NOT ME ...... it's too hot already !!!!!
too sunny hot and cheerful for me
oh gee ....
enjoy your happy sunny day tomorrow !!!!!

I too love Moleskins. Can't seem to stop buying the smaller ones that I tote around so that when I perch to have some coffee at a cafe, I can write to my heart's desire.
I love the idea of a picture per day. You know I'm crazy about your creations.

Great assignment. If not a tall order. I don't know art moleskin, but think I can imagine it knowing the textile version. Think it would be a nice sensory feeling to draw/write on, but is it the same thing as the textile?

Oh, yay! "ma la skeen-ah", I was just pondering this same book yesterday and wanted to learn the Italian pronunciation. I was probably considering this purchase while you were creating this lovely lady. I've never used one, are they truly as wonderful as everyone says? Inquiring minds...

Great sketch! I love Moleskins, too, but haven't been good about sketching in mine lately. You've inspired me! Have a great weekend!

Lovely! I have so many moleskines, but I start and never seem to finish. I will... one day. I think I actually do have one or two completed. :)
