Illustration || Show and tell: Moleskine and a wood panel


I finally went into my Moleskine sketchbook. I was too afraid to draw in it because it was such a beautiful book with fresh, thick pages, I was too nervous I might ruin it and have to tear a page out.. which I do not want to do. I adore my Moleskines a little bit too much. I started with a sketch of a girl, then went in with some paints for the background. It's just the start but it's some progress. Here are two photos of that whole ordeal that took me forever to start:

I'm also staring at this wood panel. I sketched a face on it and I'm just staring at it, contemplating on what I'm doing next. Do I like the sketch? Am I doing mixed media? Acrylic paints? Oil paints? Geez this is hard work to figure out.. need coffee.



  1. It looks great! I am excited to see the outcome. :)

    1. Thanks Debie! I'll definitely share it when I'm done.

  2. I know exactly how you feel about messing up your beautiful new moleskin sketch book. Looks like you're off to a great start!


So happy you paid me a visit. Mahalo!
Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.
Proverbs 16:24

Hi there! Photography and art featured on this blog, unless where noted, came from my camera and were made or styled by my hands. You may not use my photos for profit or on commercial websites, but we might be able to work something out with a dozen chocolate macarons, and a juicy deal. Do not remove my watermarks or copyright markings from my photos (please see previous sentence). I won't bite, well unless you infringe on my copyright. But really, send me an email, I'm pretty nice. The snail mail on my blog includes my mail or the work from other artists and pen friends. I do my best to give everyone credit.

Speaking of links, I do on occasion link out to other sites, however I am not responsible for the content you find on those sites. Sometimes clicking on a link I’ve provided may be a link to a site that will give me a small commission if you buy something from them. Which means that I might get paid (hopefully not in gum) if you click on that link, whoo-hoo.
