I used to doodle in sketchbooks obsessively. Once I started attending the Center For Cartoon Studies and began to take comics more seriously, I fell out of the practice. I started it up again last fall, and decided to motivate myself to sketch more often by giving completed sketchbooks out as gifts. The first one I completed was a gift to my boyfriend for his birthday. My last completed sketchbook was given to my mother for her birthday back in April. I am almost done with my third sketchbook, which will be a gift for my friend Christine. I plan to release some of the highlights of these for pay as you want in my Gumroad store. I'll update the blog when that happens.
Here are some photos of my fave pages from my mother's sketchbook.
