My internet went down today, bloody Virgin. 7am - 8pm I was sat in that corner, distraught and shaking, like a heroin addict being starved of their addiction... Finally, at 8pm when it got back on, colour seemed to return to the world
Anyway... there is a point to this, honest. I was forced to work on a couple of projects that I hadn't intended to do for a little while yet, one of which is a re-brand of a successful WordPress/WooCommerce plug-in. I found myself whizzing through, just like Aaron in the video!
Scotty, I use cheap stuff too. Most of my sketching is done in an A4 notepad, I just get annoyed with anything smaller. Anyone else think Mole Skin's are a waste of money?
Moleskins - stupid waste of money although I will admit I do like the feel/look of the soft touch cover on a notebook, just seems a little more 'classy'.....so I just buy a cheaper version which isn't labelled moleskin lol. Picked up a load of 'end of line' a5 ones from Sainsbury's for about a quid each.... they're a more tan/brown shade of cover hence end of line, not a popular colour but seeing as I usually use a brown ink in my pen they seem to work fine for my needs
Why do I use brown ink....it's not a common colour etc when you sign things so it's harder to 'fake'. I also like the look of brown ink on paper because to me it kind of straddles that line of 'business' and 'casual' if you get me, it's a bit less clinical. Not to mention it brings back images of the historical artwork of people like da vinci.
I once bought a Moleskine and was frightened to use it and ended up losing it anyway.
I used to make myself little field note books from copy paper just to carry in my back pocket incase I had any ideas on the hoof.
I'm always jotting things down on copy paper so I can add them to the pile which I occasionally filter out.
Best thing I use are layout pads. They're cheap and I use them to refine my sketches. Love em!
