There's no right or wrong way to go about keeping a sketchbook. But I think when I was just starting out I had the idea that there was a "right way". Without an art background I didn't know how to work in this mysterious "right way" and so I didn't work in sketchbooks at all. That thinking held me back for a long time.
I don't want that sort of thinking to hold you back. It's one of the reasons I put together my first class on Skillshare (and why I'm working on more). And it's one of the reasons I'm hosting these Sketchbook Conversations. If you have the yearning to create, create. The world needs more art in it. Your life needs more art in it.
And now on to today's Sketchbook Conversation! Today we're chatting with Constanza Urdampilleta. Here's Constanza's story:
I am a 26 year old Argentinian living in Sydney. I am a passionate about drawings (mandalas and small things).
I like working in a sketchbook because it´s an easy way to always be prepared to put down some inspiration.
I am always looking around to see new things and find inspiration. I love Instagram and street art also inspires me.
I use markers, and pens to draw. These are the tools that I feel comfortable to work with, but I am trying to explore new ones such as watercolours.
I am a young creative woman trying to put together my work with my passion.
Thank you, Constanza, for sharing your sketchbook story with us today!
