I grew up watching my oldest brother draw — he always always had a pen and notebook in-hand and if I was lucky, he would draw something for me during church services. A picture of me in my bulky bifocal glasses, my favorite blankie, a mystical creature. Now I’m married to a designer and wherever he goes, he carries a notebook. It’s like second nature for me to double check that we have his notebook when we’ll be on the subway, flying, or sitting in a pew. It’s an extension and an outlet.
Do you use a writer’s notebook or sketchbook? Or are you print-free and use your smart phone to record moments and thoughts?
