Illustrated Journal

I have decided to call my sketchbook-with-drawings-and-writing an 'Illustrated Journal', which makes it more clear to me that it's not my Art Journal, even though it's art. I know it seems a bit confusing maybe, but it works in my head so I'll stick with it.

Annyyywayyy.... I've done some more pages that I'd like to share:

I don't think I'd ever done a drawing of my art supplies before, so it was about time. My Koh-i-Noor paints, a Pentel waterbrush and my Cotman Sketcher's set.

My clock and the tablets I take every day. I'm hoping to cut down this year. Fingers crossed!

My breakfast this morning. Because the Cotman Sketcher's Pocket set has a limited pallet, I had to be creative about my shadows. I really like the way this came out.

I'm really enjoying this new experience, finding little things to draw and using my watercolours to add more interest to the drawing. So far I've used my Micron 03 pen, but today I received the sillicone grease and syringes I ordered to fill my fountain pens with ink. I'll be playing with them for the next few days to see what I prefer using. Watch out for more Illustrated Journal pages.


  1. Great to hear you're having fun with the illustrated journaling. I settled on calling it that was either that or sketchbook journaling. Wonderful sketches!

    Since my health issues arose, I have found that I rely heavily on my pill dispenser box too. It makes life so much easier.

    Have a great day,
    Serena :)

  2. Thanks so much Serena. One of my tablets I have to take every other day. I'd be so confused if I did not have my trusty pillbox.

  3. Gorgeous drawings! You are soooooo creative!

    Nog een heel gelukkig 2012
