Pardon Me, Am I Personaly Identifiable?

I thought it might be fun to post some of my favorite pages from sketchbooks. I only buy Bee Paper Company Super Deluxe sketchbooks, I got one for a class a year or so ago and was immediately sold on the product. The paper used is 91 lb. paper, much thicker than a lot of sketchbooks I've had or seen. The heavyweight paper is great for working in wet media when in the mood for such an affair. I also like utilizing the "front" and "back" of sketchbook pages as seen below.

I love to mess with the covers of my sketchbooks! It's my favorite thing about starting a new sketchbook. Just make it all messy and screwy and add to it until it feels "done".

Somewhere along the line I started pasting images from my stash into my sketchbooks. I think it was recommended by a drawing teacher. I like how a pasted image may (or may not) relate to a drawing on the opposing page.

Captain Oswald Boelcke! From a brief period of fascination with attractive WWI pilots.

I'm not sure if I like writing thoughts and feelings (oh - my precious feelings!) into sketchbooks but I'm beginning to jot things down in them with more regularity.

I'll upload some more sketchbook pages from time to time. I'm trying to get into the habit of drawing a page daily, or if not drawing a page daily, at least making up for missed days by drawing several pages in one day. It's fun to try to find ways to make things interesting.
