Over the years, I’ve always had a pile of half-empty sketchbooks to work in, with various types of paper, sizes or formats.
Over the years, whenever I needed to, I’d pull a sketchbook out from my pile, and draw in it for a page or two to help solidify an idea, play with a new pen or less often, sketch some person, scene or object in front of me. Sometimes I’ve kept a sketchbook in my desk at work, to help me work out a visual design idea.
But in recent years, I haven’t sketched nearly as much as I used to back when I was an art student, or back in the early days of my career.
Recently, I’ve felt the need, and have begun sketching again. This time though, in addition to pens and pencils, my sketching media include smart phones and tablet computers.
