I’m having issues with my sketchbook! Well, I have a few of them, but I always carry one in my purse, which of course makes my purse extremely heavy, but what if there’s a chance of a few minutes, waiting for a friend, drinking coffee, or what not, and being able to sketch an idea that comes to me? Thus lugging around what feels like bricks! I know what your thinking, totally worth it!
I’m working on a huge art piece that’s taking a lot longer then I thought, but as detailed as it is, I would rather take my time, then work on something that looks like I didn’t take the time it needed. I look at my sketchbooks and feel like I need to be filling them up. That the pages should be filled with incredible pieces of work. The sketchbook in my purse is empty. It’s a new sketchbook, but there’s only maybe a page or two of work, and the pages aren’t even filled with much. It’s like I have this fear of creating something that isn’t good in my eyes, even if it’s in a sketchbook. The name says it all… ‘Sketch’, it shouldn’t be perfect. It should simply be where I can put down ideas for work I will do in the future, or simply to put down ideas that keep floating in my mind and a way of shutting my mind off. So, why do I feel so guilty?
Do any of you guys have that issue?
