Because of popular demand

So these are 2 pages facing each other from the beginning of my sketchbook. This current incarnation of book isn't as interesting as others, and if i find THOSE i'll definitely scan them in for all to see. 

I've come to realize that i've taken to sketching way too seriously. I mean yes its a means of keeping you loose and fluid. a way to have your skills stay up to muster. and a way for you to figure images out, either for a client or for a larger piece for yourself. But sketchbooking used to also be a place to explore the use of line and color. a place to just follow strange train of thought either through images or words or both. I used to cary a small stick of glue and scissors, in case i found an image that inspired me. My books began to fall apart from all the crap i'd keep in them, and the pages i'd glue in them and all the places that they were taken. 

I don't necessarily want them to fall apart anymore, but i would like to feel the freedom that it created.  Once i finish this book, maybe with the next one i'll be able to recapture that feeling. Or maybe i'm just trying to recapture a past that can never be redone and its all an act of futility. What do you think?
