1998 Sketchbook

For organization and excavation purposes only and of no interest to anyone but me.
I wanted to have old sketchbooks at my finger tips because this blog is a working tool. I consider drawing to be a skill, and for my drawings to enter into the realm of art, I would have had to do a lot more. Working on paper does not hold my attention for any length of time. No fancy materials: for a long time I used newsprint because I could buy it at the local hardware store by the kilo, and a regular pencil or bic pen. Yet, this work/play has probably made my textile sketchbook and other current work possible. An added benefit--this archeological site (!) has helped to reinforce Memory as it documents my peregrinations.
