The first book was Play Pen, a really enjoyable book which we've all had a good thumb through, and found some new books to add on to our children's picture book wishlist.
Then I also found this one, which is a telephone-directory sized tome, jam-packed with images from graphic designers' sketchbooks. A thoroughly inspiring read - it's really interesting to see how different artists record their creative processes.
So I thought I'd open up a couple of pages from my sketch/note books. Sometimes I'm scribbling down an idea for a new design, or reworking an existing one, or taking notes, or just doodling.
My favourite place to sketch ideas is on train journeys. I often look forward to the journey more than the destination. I like small sketchbooks the best, A6 size with either plain or lined paper, I'm not fussy. I've really enjoyed these ones which I got for Christmas. I've filled up 2 of them already, just got the octopus one to go...
