The first page
Updated: Sep 8, 2019
The first page of your sketchbook can be a little intimidating. Especially if you’re starting a new format or new paper type.
To break into your new sketchbook with ease, here are a few suggestions:
Draw your tools
This is what I do in all my sketchbooks. On the first page, I draw the tools that I will be using or taking along with me.
Create an opening page
An opening page that defines the style, purpose, or topic of that sketchbook.
Leave it blank
Yup, just leave it black and start on the next pays. You can either leave it blank and fill it in later, quick sketch or once you know what to draw. Inspiration may take time.
I know these ideas aren’t rocket science. But, they have helped me before. I have tried all three, and nothing works better than drawing your tools.
