My creative intuitions have been in a rut for the last year. When I was still in school I'd draw at least once a day, but without class time to doodle and my art classes for my major I just haven't been able to build up the courage to produce anything worthwhile recently. Despite the fact that I've invested in several moleskines and sketchbooks to get my juices flowing, they've been filled to the brim with To Do lists and work notes and void of any interesting drawings. Sad panda, indeed.
Thankfully, Crap Artist's last pen pal package included a tiny, slim-paged sketchbook (the Caderno in the photo). One evening a few weeks ago I decided to try it out. Page by page I started to play around with ballpoint, my prismacolor markers, and other experiments. This sketchbook has something magical about it, and in turn i've been able to make a few drawings that I'm proud of again. Here are a few of the pages, all of which are being kept track of in my Caderno Flickr set:
