The (Real) Saturday Night Sketchbook!

Forget digital, how’s about some real sketchbooks?! I’ve taken some photos of the sketchbooks I use day today, originally for a reddit thread on /r/notebooks (a good subreddit if you’re into notebooks by the way), but I figured I should also stick them up here! The REAL Sunday Night Sketchbook is coming back soon however, so don’t despair! Anyway, enjoy! You can also find more pictures of my notebooks at my instagram account if this wee photoset doesn’t appease your hunger for all things hand-drawn!

So many Moleskines! I swear I diversify! I don't often buy them anymore, It's just when people gift me notebooks it's usually moleskines because they are a pretty recognizable 'Quality' brand. These are the books I have started and finished since last year, I have about a dozen more at home. Top left are two stacked Moleskine notebooks. One a sketchbook and one a lined journal, I finished them years ago but I took them from home for reference (and safe keeping!). Top middle is my diary, left is mt stationary box. In the centre is my current sketchbook, as well as the field notes I keep in my pocket for notes. Bottom right is a small notebook I use for drawing cityscapes

A lot of gibberish. Top book is the sketchbook I used when doing radio interviews, as you can see I often let my mind wander. My stationary box is an old cigar case that I used to keep watches and clockwork stuff in. My favourite pens to use are Staedtler .3 &.005s, mainly a holdover from when I used to do a lot of technical & graph comm drawing. They probably aren't the best writing or artist pens, but I love them. You can see an example of the cityscapes in my wee moleskine below it.

This is what I carry in my bag when traveling or just day to day use. The fieldnotes are by my side 24 hours a day, and they tend to get a bit bashed, torn and, if I'm outdoors working or on the boat, wet. I usually go through one every month. Brilliant books though,  the paper is thick enough for even fountain pens so you don't have to be too careful with them. I'd recommend ducktaping the spine and edges as soon as you use them though if you do a lot of outdoorsy stuff like I do

Sunday Night Sketchbook 01/06/14- May bumper edition!

Greeeeetings true believers! I know, what a long time to have gone without posting on my flashy wee blog, but a multitude of events including exams, a marathon and a move home have meant I’ve had little or no time at all for internet duties! Which, honestly is pretty awesome. There’s nothing better than spending time outdoors on my home island, and I had a blast running the marathon so I’m certainly going to make the drive to do more outdoorsy stuff (in fact, keep an eye out here for some updates and what not)! Anyway, let’s get to the artwork! Again, not exactly a months worth of work, but plenty to keep you entertained. Hopefully I’ll be getting back on the drawing horse ASAP (or once the weather gets worse!)

Anyway, enjoy!

Sunday Night Sketchbook 27/04/14

Buckle up Bagginses! We have a Sketchbook so bursting full of drawings, I literally do no know how to format it! I’ve been making a series of Tumblr posts in which I answer questions submitted by the lovely folks over there. The questions have been silly answers full of gifs and other nonsense, and you can see parts one, two, three and four in their original glory here! Either way, let’s get to it- enjoy!

The Sunday Night Sketchbook 20/04/14

Hello! Welcome back to this weeks edition of “Stuff I gone done and drawn” (or Sunday Night Sketchbook to you fancy folks). Brilliantly, I actually have an excuse for being late this week! My computer has been in pieces while I give everything a well overdue clean, so apologies for this being a day over the deadline! This week encompasses a few doodles and stuff from the week of the 14th as well, however since I didn’t have much to show for it that week, between me and you, we’ll consider all this done from the past seven days.

Anyway, enough deceit enjoy!
