Hi everyone, Dion Dior here. What a wonderful theme for the Sketchbook Challenge this month. Words are such an important part of my own sketching process, particularly in my illustrated journals.
Since I was a child I've been keeping a journal, and as I grew, so did my desire to introduce pictures and color onto the pages. But words were first.
These days my focus is well and truly on the art, but I always, always, always, include words in my journals. Sometimes they're my own, and other times they are quotes and inspiration.
When I'm working on a fine art piece, I use words in my sketchbook to describe color and form. I make notes about mixes, and my approach. Using words is a very important way to develop your journaling and sketchbook habit.
How do you use words in your sketchbook?
Thanks for checking in. xx
