A little while ago I came across a class over at Creative Bug that really inspired me to get back into playing in my sketchbook! I was looking for a fun art project that my daughter and I could work on together and discovered Lisa Congdon’s wonderful Sketchbook Explorations courses. They have really inspired both of us to start playing in our sketchbooks, in fact my daughter has nearly filled hers with doodles, patterns and drawings over the past month!
After being laid off from his job in April 2011, Kolby Kirk (The Hike Guy) decided he would attempt to complete as much as he could of the 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail. In that time, Kolby wrote 850 pages in his journals, a few of which he has scanned for a major dose of visual stimulation. The pages are filled with charts, receipts, beer labels, stamps, dried botanicals, & sketches. See his Flickr photostream ~ https://www.flickr.com/photos/kahunna/
