Verry big love and sketches

A Creative Life, commonplace book, ebook, public art, sketchbook

As I mentioned in this post here the executive director came to my studio, saw the “Verry Big Project” and approved! “I love it!” the exec said. “Whew!” I said. Then we discussed installation and other nitty-gritty details. The next day I started varnishing the finished (and approved! yippeee!) artwork! The organization will do publicity regarding this public art project at the appropriate time. So for a while we’ll need to talk about something other than my Verry Big Project.

How about those sketchbooks? Have you got one? Is it a “sketchbook”, a “commonplace book” a “writer’s notebook” some combo of the above? I do a combo and jokingly call it a “Commonsketchplacebook”.

Here is a photo of my 2015 sketchbook which I just finished – and my new 2016 sketchbook (the one with the coffee beans on it).


And yes, that’s a fountain pen in the photo!

You can see some of my sketchbook pages here on my blog at or collected in my ebooks:

“Coffee, Table, Book”

“Dr. Bob’s Emotional Repair Program First Aid Kit”

  1. I’m so glad you got the final approval on the verry big project! (As if there was any doubt…) Love the notebooks, by the way. You continue to amaze me, my friend! 🙂

    1. Awwww thanks!!! And there was some “pins-and-needles” of doubt about final approval on my part…the head honcho could have said I’d gotten the wrong number of whiskers or something. (I could tell you tales of some things I’ve heard…) Lol 😉 At any rate – I deliver on Tuesday! Wish me luck! And I’m glad to hear you like seeing my sketchbooks!

Thank you for reading and sharing encouragements!
