I latched onto this sketchbook habit on August 21, 2006. I guess that means next Wednesday is my 7th Anniversary and after filling 37 sketchbooks, I'm still going strong. Pretty amazing for someone who didn't see the point in sketchbooks prior to that – even though every art teacher I've ever had has encouraged me to keep one.
The last nine months have reinforced the importance of drawing and journaling in my life. It's given me someplace to vent my frustrations and worries, but it's also reminded me that there is a lot more good than bad going on in my life.
