I love looking at the sketches and unfinished work of accomplished artists for three reasons First it helps to know that these people are human not everything they do is a finished masterpiece Second it helps me understand how they create their art A finished polished artwork is an impenetrable to a beginner I think as seeing the exterior of a building What's inside How did it come to be By seeing preliminary work we can see how it was constructed and that's immensely valuable to understanding how to make something like it Third I believe it's the easiest way to see the artist's raw talent and practiced ability Anyone can fiddle with a line long enough until it becomes the right shape But someone who can clearly put that same perfect line down in one fluid stroke on the first try that's a person with serious ability I admire that person I aspire to be that personSeeing the sketchbooks of artists is even better than just seeing in progress art intended to be a 'finished' work not only are we seeing the raw unpolished artwork itself we're also witnessing the germination of the ideas themselves at the very font of creativity I've been carrying a small notebook around with me for over a year now and I've come to treasure my little notes and thumbnail sketches When I'm facing a blank screen or blank piece of paper and I need an idea I no longer have to dream something up from thin air Now I can just look at my previous half formed ideas and let one of those tickle my fancy It doesn't matter that an idea comes to me in the car or when I'm getting out of bed in the morning I can capture it then and do it later Sometimes much later Before I was just letting all of those ideas and images disappear uickly forgetting them forever What a waste that wasIn reading the interviews with these artists I get the impression many of them use their sketchbooks for this purpose as wellIn addition many of them have kept sketchbooks as a discipline for so long that it has sharply honed their creative abilities as well as their artistic skill So what we're really seeing is pure powerful creative gold freshly dug still in the ore from people who have been doing that sort of thing for a long time I'm grateful to be able to see itThere is a pretty good mix of art styles represented in Drawn In Some of it I liked very very much All of it I appreciatedThe unexpected benefit of reading the interviews was getting the broad range of purpose the various artists had for keeping a sketchbook Many of their uses I'd never thought about before like the sketchbook itself being a handcrafted piece of bookbinding art in its own right It was very inspiringTags art artists drawing notes books as art panda bears typography creativity raw talent

As someone who has kept a sketchbook on and off for many years I've always been drawn to other people's sketchbooks what do they use them for How do they interact with the pages Do they have the same anxiety I do about that first blank page Do they ever tear pages out This lovely volume asks these sorts of uestions of 44 artists and reproduces images from their sketchbooks It's a gorgeous book and pawing through the pages reading all about how these artists feel about their sketchbooks is a delightful treat This is one I'll keep returning to and enjoying for ages
