 Topic: "Pages From Your Sketchbook"
Share a page or two from your sketchbook.
Tell us about the piece(s) or idea(s).
Have you started the piece? Did the finished piece change from the original sketch? 

I have always kept a sketchbook, somewhere to put down ideas before I forget them. Some ideas eventually get made, some are jumping off points and get resolved at the bench, in process....I will look at things even years later and still find ideas that are relevant.

 With every new sketchbook that I buy, I always start with the best of intentions, that I will record ideas meticulously and thoroughly. In the end, they become a combination of sketchbook, shopping list, to-do list, price formulas, phone book, scrapbook and diary. This is fine by me, it suits my random and disorganized nature. There is no rhyme or reason, but at least it is all in one place.
