Sketching and writing any time, any where. Even at home.

Sketching and writing any time, any where. Even at home.

Sketching and writing any time, any where. Even at home. I think the title is self-explanatory. I really don’t know if sometimes sketching is something different from writing or writing is just wording some crazy lines but I like often to integrate them.
It is really important to me to make everything is worth to be sketched and to write as soon I have the ideas, the spark, the flint. I so empty my mind for the next task…

Even if it’s something unuseful. I can say that I live in an eternal state of brain storming, so sketching first, second the writing and reading a lot, are my cures. THen there are my other hobby that I’m something like obsessed. To think, to sketch, to realize something for fun or as a cure is very important to me. Now I have also my son with me everything is going to be even more exciting… I can’t wait to see him with crayons in its tiny puffy hands! 🙂

So far so good I’d like to share how I am putting on paper, sketching, scribbling and writing some of leather ideas, ideas, or just to color the paper with lines. I’d like to have with me always more than one notebook and I found my heaven for all my ideas in making my own leather notebook and sketchbook covers and filling them with several (actually only four…) recycled hand-made notebooks.
I need to go on three small notebooks maximum but actually I’m making some sketching about how to make some furniture in the baby room by hacking some Ikea shelves… and some more.
No matter if they I made them from recycled paper, wrapping paper, watercolor paper or photocopy paper, whatever paper or are from different sizes. I made them I’m sketching and writing on them. Sometimes I deserve the same treatment on that not cheap Moleskine Cahiers. I mix everything under one cover.

And obviously I use any kind of pen regardless of the paper… So far so good. Here some ideas taken from artistic needs, so any leather pencil-case, pen cases. I will realize them? How to find this time? My goodness…

Even making some project for the outside of my balcony, shelves for storage that in these days is never enough.sketching and writing 06

But also I,m sketching and writing on my everyday agenda, where I make all the “to do”.
It’s the classic Moleskine plain paper, but next time I will go on Rhodia side because more fountain pen friendly, and here again I mix my leather ideas here with all the duties of a new dad. It’s like a brainstorming on paper and I hope some of these projects will take life.

I know I’m crazy… Even my wife told me that.
I simply just can’t stop doing. Doing something.

  1. You are obviously a very visual person and like to keep a visual record of what you are doing. Nice!!! I love the parcel that you got in your swap below.

  2. It is great to see what you have been up to. Your blog has been so quiet but not your mind or hands…I also wondered about your writing in English. Interesting!! I can see you attaining anything you want. Best of success.

    1. Thanks Beth. As soon as I can I post on my blog, and in these days even for me it’s not that easy. But I still hold tight! 🙂

  3. Fun and fascinating to peek in your creative notebooks! 🙂 But I’m surprised to see that you sometimes write your notes in English??! I can’t imagine writing in anything but my native language for notes like these!

    1. Tina,
      Most of my creative language is English. This just because I read a lot of English. It’s like my mother tongue for my creativity.

Please leave a comment! I like to see what you think about!
