Well it’s been a while but I’m back again. I thought I would start with a few little graphite sketches so I nipped out to get a cheap little sketchbook. I’ve always fancied a nice tiny book so I bought this A5 sketchbook for mucking about with. Anyone in the UK may have heard of The Works – they sell cheap books and art equipment – that’s where I got this book. Very cheap and as I have a hard cover book from the same place and the paper in that is awful (but OK for what I wanted it for), I had my doubts about this even cheaper book. Not the best paper you can buy but not bad either – and for 99p, well you just can’t go wrong. You know that feeling when you have expensive paper and you are so scared of making a mistake? Cheap paper frees you up a bit – so what if you ruin a sheet – so what if you ruin the whole book!
