the zebra square notebook

Text

gift from one of my longest friends, R. she lives mostly in London, and makes it a habit to buy me a notebook once a year or so. this one is from Artbox, made in England out of recycled paper and leather.

this was given to me before the redcat book, so I suspect a year or two before 2007. its unruled (just the way I like it) and I primarily use it for sketches.

I sketch with black ink pens, either

  • 0.25
  • 0.28
  • 0.3
  • 0.38
  • 0.4

without any pencils, and illustrations are usually based on something in my surroundings. I don’t know how to sketch off the top of my head, and I have no drawing experience or formal art training.

I don’t fill this book in sequentially, so its mainly haphazard blank pages and entries disregarding chronology.
