Phew! A blog! Writing at The Drawing Club blog has given me a whetted appetite for blogging, so I just had to try it for myself. Who would have thought... I´ve been trying to make Blogger show this blog on my homepage instead, but it doesn´t work. Or, yes, I can make it publish the whole thing on my site, except for the images. They don´t show. I decided to simply keep my blog here at Blogger instead. At least until I find a better solution.
I´ll start this blog by showing my new sketchbooks. The small one is made from an old leather cover of a book ("Runebergs samlade verk") bound with new paper inside. It´s small enough to fit into a bag or a pocket so this one will go with me all the time. The big yellow one is made following a description at www.teeshamoore.com (great inspiration for art journals there, if you ask me). The size (A4) is bigger than I´m used to, and I can´t wait to start ruining the pages of these two. I still have a few pages left in my old sketchbooks, and I promised myself to fill those completely before indulging in my new books. I will post images here as I start working in them.
