One of the lessons I learned this year at San Diego was that I need to start carrying a sketchbook. I always knew that it was something I should do but I just never did it. I’ve decided to fix that and I’ve begun working really hard to keep a sketchbook and I love it. I figured I could solve another problem with the sketchbook as well, mainly my lack of updates to the gabeart section of the site. So I went ahead and redesigned gabeart to be a sketch dump site. I’ll still post finished illustrations in there when I do them, but I’m going to try and post a new sketch dump each week. I put the first batch up today if your interested in checking them out. A lot of it is just junk that most of you probably won’t care about. But I know as an artist I love looking at other artist’s sketchbooks and seeing how they work. I figure there might be a few of you out there who will find this stuff interesting. Doing the weekly sketch dumps should also keep me motivated to work in my sketchbook.
