I heart notebooks!!

In 2009 I treated myself to a concertina notebook, and challenged myself to fill it. Each page spilled onto the next so no picture actually finished and none started.

I found at the time that I couldn't work with colour - i wanted to concentrate on line, concept and focus on draftsmanship, so I limited myself to graphite, pen and ink. I completed it and the entire notebook stretched to around 12ft long. I always wanted to do the other side in a coloured story - it may be my next project!


Inside this notebook was one of the first drawings I did of my lady - Inspired by a good friends heartache..... she turned out to be a keeper!! Below is a larger piece based on the drawing.
