my green & stone sketchbook } the first seventeen pages
On my last trip to London I bought a new sketchbook from Green and Stone’s, no surprise. It has been rather difficult to find a sketchbook with the right degree of soft- to roughness ratio and absorption. When I bought this one, I felt I’d found the one. As lovely as the paper is, it still doesn’t measure up to the paper in my marble sketchbook, which was so conducive to that perfect sketch.
Anyway. I wasn’t planning on documenting the pages in this book because frankly I felt my sketches were boring and somewhat perfunctory. But as I went deeper into it, and discovered how to work with the paper, it started to make more sense to me visually. I realized that this sketchbook should be viewed as an evolutionary progression rather than a series of individual drawings. So here are the first seventeen pages of my new sketchbook.
