Paperage is a fan of all things sketchbooks: doodles, hand lettering, art journaling. We’ve recently discovered the idea of sketching your day or drawing your life as a mindful meditation practice or a way to document memories.
Sometimes the pressure to “make art” in a sketch book can seem overwhelming and brings out the perfectionist in all of us. But what about taking off some of the pressure and simply drawing what’s around you, at the moment?
A great way to start this practice is by picking up a two pack of Paperage sketchbooks and one of these inspiring books on drawing your day:
- 50 Ways to Draw Your Beautiful, Ordinary Life: Practical Lessons in Pencil and Paper
- Draw Your Day: An Inspiring Guide to Keeping a Sketch Journal
- Bonus! - Watch this Youtube interview with author of Draw Your Day, Samantha Dion Baker
