How to Have an Awesome Sketchbook

During the month of February I've decided to run a new series on this blog, my Tumblr page, and all my social media sites under the heading of "How to Have an Awesome Sketchbook." I've been keeping a pretty consistent sketchbook since I was barely old enough to hold a pencil. Sketching kept me quiet and busy on nights and weekends, so my parents supported my habit by keeping me stocked with cheap paper and pencils, folders and coloring books. I had large and small sketchbooks all throughout college that I'd carry to class to take notes in and into the studio to sketch out new ideas. 

Over the years I've collected countless sketchbooks of all kinds and acquired a knack for knowing just how to fill them. This habit has changed over the years from drawing pictures out of my coloring books to cutting and pasting pictures from my mom's magazines to writing stories and developing new ideas. Still to this day keeping a sketchbook is a daily practice.

So for the month of February I've decided to share a plethora of tips and techniques about how to keep an awesome sketchbook with you. Whether you're a beginner who's never used one before or a trained artist, I hope this series will help! I'll share my list of tools and supplies as well as links to resources and supply stores so you can start your own awesome sketchbook today!
