Spring 2013. I have kept a "sketchbook" for my visual arts for five years now (16+ books). I put the word "sketchbook" in quotes because these books feature much more than sketches. I also paste experiments (like these test photos I did for a night assignment in advanced photography), document progress, and write reflective or idea passages. These books are really more of a journal of my growth, failures, successes, and ideas, as this spread from advanced photography demonstrates.
