As usual, when going on a sketching adventure I am making a new sketchbook. I typically use colorful fabric prints or old maps for my covers and commercial book cloth for the spines. For this book about a very special place I decided to try out new material– leather. A friend of mine is a shoe maker and I am heading to his shop to rummage through a pile of leather scraps that might work.
|A new sketchbook is in progress. The signatures are sewn together and ready for the next step|
|Elastic holder/organizer is easy to make on your own fitting precisely the size of your book and the shape of your tools|
|Makeup artists use this belt for painting faces–I think it makes for a perfect sketcher's belt|
|I am only hoping this would not look too much like a dreadful fanny pack when I travel|
