I love sketchbooks. They comprise most of what I pick up at conventions. They're a glimpse past the finished pieces and into the actual inner workings of an artists brain. To me they're a record of where an artist has been over a given year.
That being said, I began to see a few themes or recurring imagery emerge over the course of the last year, namely, I drew a lot of princesses, a lot of monsters, and a lot of things flying.
Erin suggested the name Princesses, Monsters, and things that fly and it stuck.
My 2009 sketchbook is really more than a sketchbook, and that's why I believe I'm most proud of it and maybe that's why "sketchbook" isn't exactly the correct word for it.
Truthfully it's a collection of where I was from July 2008 to July 2009 -- it's finished drawings, scanned pages from my actual sketchbook, some finished paintings (small prints, really) and even a few storyboard-like sequences. 44 color pages, cover, paperback, saddle stitched.
More than any thing, I'm most proud of this little book. I hope you will like it too.
