Awhile back Susan gave me a sketchbook she made. It was nice to have a sturdy "manly" looking sketchbook. I've actually done a number of sketches in it as I planned some clay pieces and some jewelry pieces. She suggested I try some color and gave me some cheap watercolors, just like that plastic box you had you had in grade school. After seeing the 1000 Journals documentary I was more open to using other media into the sketchbook. I don't know if I'll ever make these clay pieces but I liked adding the color to the sketches.
