Thank you for visiting my website! The blog is updated most days with new sketches. Here however you may be interested in seeing some of my many sketchbooks from over the years. I have typically used a landscape sketchbook of roughly 8×5″ size (or thereabouts), watercolour Moleskine, Seawhite of Brighton or Stillman and Birn (Alpha), but I have a few others. I do plan to re-organize and re-name the sketchbooks so they are not categorized by brand. In November 2016, I had a retrospective exhibition of ten years of my sketchbooks at the UC Davis Design Museum called ‘Conversations With the City.’ That was fun! Please note, these link to the folders on Flickr where I store the images.
