Studio Series: Sketchbook drawings

Now that I have a little breathing room in my studio practice, I've returned to feeding my sketchbook with new interest and a new approach. Normally I have separate spaces for journalling, goal-setting, quotes, and usual visual sketchbook stuff. Yes, that's at least 5 different books on the go. Now, I'm mixing it up and I'm just pouring it all into one sketchbook. It's an interesting experiment and I'll see if it works well enough to continue.

The combo of sketching and writing is very different for me. It feels deeper, more meditative, and strange in a good way.
