I’ve never considered myself to be a particularly good drawer/sketcher/whatever. Ok, I can produce something that looks vaguely like what it’s supposed to be, but would never consider myself to be particularly good.
Once in a while I do get an urge to carry a sketchpad and pencils around with me, and have several lying around, but never actually get around to using it, and producing something.
Lynne Butt has written an article about using sketchbooks for her needlework, and how she can get more pleasure out of playing with the sketching than the actual finished item!
So what about you? Do you use sketchbooks, either for fun or as part of your creative cycle?
