    Over the last few weeks, I've found myself spending a lot less of my free time on the computer and as a result, getting a lot more sketchbook pages done. These are scans of some of last week's pages, along with a few miscellaneous bits at the bottom.

    Everything is done in ink directly and is a combination of rough drawings from reference materials (the top row in particular), further doodles based on these, random letter/word sketches, messing around with some wood type, etc.

    (Much) bigger version attached.

    Love love love it. My sketchbook pages are filled with ambigrams and some lettering. In fact, I bought a sketchbook JUST for lettering and made a promise not to have a single ambigram there. We'll see how long that lasts. ;)

    I don't believe you did these last week. These must be from 20 years ago when you actually had time to draw.

    @Sean McCabe Ha, good to know! Not using an eraser has been tough.. (there is unfortunately also a lack of Microns and precision-inking.)

    @Jason Carne Thanks! I liked where that row of 'L's was going, but the less said about some of those 'H's the better.. Haha.

    @Neil Tasker Ahaha no surprises there, it's probably your 10th book by now. Thanks for the kind words!

    @Nikita Prokhorov Ah great idea, pretty impressive undertaking too! (...I give it a week until an ambigram crops up in the corner of one of the pages).

    @Jeff Jenkins Thanks! And no problem of course, glad you like it!

    @Nick Slater Haha thanks! Hope things are good with you.

    @Bob Ewing /// creative WHAT! Cheers Bob! Yeah rough sketches are so useful to practice, especially based on reference materials.

    @Christopher Burton Haha I know, it's amazing the time you can free up when you abandon everything.

    Sorry to double comment, it won't let me edit my last one.
    I absolutely love the "Forever Never nope" sketch haha, especially the little "nope" on the side. and the "CC111" is super cool too!

    @Jackie Tran & @Jed Bridges Thanks guys! (and Jed, I'll take that as the good kind of maniac).

    @Adam Trageser Haha yeah I was just testing out a pen for the "nope" and just sort of ended up writing that word for no reason. The C and 1 are some awesome wood type blocks I got as a gift a few weeks ago, really fun to play with. Thanks a lot for your thoughtful comments!
