Doodling in my new Moleskine




I was given a voucher for Gordon Harris, an art supplies store, I bought a Moleskine...finally...and some pens. I'd checked out sources for these beautiful journals in New Zealand and I'd only found them available at Christchurch Art Gallery, so I was thrilled to find a new stand at Gordon Harris in Hamilton. Extravagantly bought the larger one - 13 x 21cm. I'm just going to doodle in it. I've a few other visual diaries on the go - for painting, design/printmaking and drawing that are pretty messy, lots of scribbly writing, bits and pieces stuck in.

These are the first two pages that I've drawn on. Actually I'm starting from the back of the book. The first drawing was of the girl on the rocks. Next day I continued on the page above, trying to link it in some way.

Oooh, lovely work. I have a wee Moleskine and, stupidly, don't use it cos it's too nice. Like Sunday china LOL

And that's how I felt, which is why i started at the back! Decided to use pen and that's a confidence booster once you get going.

Squiggle Tops are fine if you are in the right company!

When are you going to give classes? I love the way you talk about oil sticks and moleskin and other adventures in the tools of art that I can't seem to navigate at the moment. I bought lovely sheets of coloured paua and maybe we could carve paua together at some stage. I want to do my heart and cross theme for St George's Chapel in Thames. Perhaps Green Dollars and Paua for a class.
