I bought a square of printed burlap (hessian?) because it seemed to me like something other people might like. It wasn’t the nicest material to work with, especially since I had to use a paper underlayer because the holes are so see-through. However, now that it’s finished, I do like the look of this! The strap is a wonderfully simple device that I’ll definitely use again.
I used to be very diligent in keeping a sketchbook, especially in the summer. However, there is so much life outside a sketchbook! My current best used book has been in use since 2001. It might be about one quarter filled… But if I ever lost it I’d be sorry, so here are some of my digitized doodles.
