I am such a sucker for beautiful sketchbooks - I love these combined with the results of those initial sketches. Mmmmmmmm....

Tara, aren't they wonderfu;. i am always intrigues to see the sketchbook pages of artists & designers i admire, these are works of art in themselves, full of detail, just as i like it.

I found your page by chance, and I was delighted to meet you, because I am an artist and I saw a blog really inspiring. A greeting from Spain.

Jasmine said...

So beautiful. I think this is one of the greatest treasures you have shared. I love these pages :)

Noelia - thank you, lovely to "meet" you, so good to hear that you are inspired by things you find here x

Thanks Jasmine, i was blown away when i found these, ony problem is i go back to my own work sometimes quite disillusioned!!! mmmm
