I thought in this post I’d share some of the places that I find inspiration. This is me, right before I get new glasses.
Plus, I’m waiting to receive my sketchbook for the World Sketchbook Tour 2012. I feel as if I might have put myself in the path of a bus with this kind of commitment but I think that might start me running again, you know? But how will I ever give it up!!!!?
So, a first link. They Draw and cook. Who wouldn’t want to look at lovely drawings of FOOD!!!
When I need to think about new fonts, I am inspired by Carolyn Sewell’s lovely and funny hand-drawn text postcards.
David Sibbet’s sketchnotes on an ipad showed me a new way to order and organize my page. Straight rectangles! Who’d a thunk it?
Mike Rodhe’s collection of Sketchnotes from many sources give me many ideas for how to doodle fancy my notes.
Need new symbols? Try Ed Emberley. I just got the Halloween book and now I can’t wait to hear a lecture that allows me to add a skeleton or two to my sketchnotes.
I find that I am more inspired by simple drawings than the more complex ones. Maybe that’s ’cause I can’t even pretend to hijack the complex ones.
