Which best describes you?
- I only write in my journal.
- I write and sometimes sketch/doodle in my journal.
- I extensively use my journals to create art
For the longest time I would only write in my journals and was pretty adamant about keeping a separate sketchbook, but now I use them for both writing and sketching. Despite keeping at least a dozen sketchbooks in a variety of sizes and paper options going at any one time, it seems easier to sketch an idea where I’m writing. If it warrants further exploration, I reach for a sketchpad.
The sketches in my journals are usually either quick conceptual studies, or of one my ubiquitous mandala meditation doodles.
