" Speed of exploration over the quality of line work is my maxim."

Earlier in the day, I was asked to submit images from my sketchbook. I thought: How did they know sketchbooks mean so much to me? Did I say something? Perhaps it was an uncanny coincidence. Only hours earlier I remarked on a student’s sketchbook and their progress exploring and collecting ideas. Maybe it was leaving the house sans keys and wallet, yet with sketchbook in hand?

Little bits of paper, stickers and ephemera that would have otherwise been lost, have a home in the journal.

I have been keeping journals since college and found it to be a perfect vault for my ideas and record of inspirations. I’m always surprised by how well the journal process (when reviewed at a later time) takes me back to exactly what I was thinking and what I was inspired by. Little bits of paper, stickers and ephemera that would have otherwise been lost, have a home in the journal.

As part of a generation that left college without touching a computer, perhaps I am different… There is a computer on my desk, but I mainly use it for e-mail. My key tools remain a box of pens/pencils and a roll of tracing paper. For me, sketching is free thinking. It doesn’t have to look great, it doesn’t have to be anything, it just becomes a visual stream of thoughts.
