I know artists that carry sketchbooks with them wherever they go. I am not such an artist. However, I have kept a few over the years, and throughout college it was the only way for me to flesh out a lot of my sculpture ideas (many of which never made it to "real life" and still remain trapped in 2-D). I think an artist's sketchbook is often more exciting and revealing than any of their finished work. There are no wrong or bad ideas in a sketchbook; there is no pressure on the image to look perfect or completed, it can simply be what it is. So, when I found the Sketchbook Series on Book By Its Cover I was thrilled to catch a glimpse into the sketchbooks of other artists. Take a look:
