Whether it is to write down your thoughts or sketch inspirations, I believe that every artist should have and use a journal!
In every interior design class I had, the teacher required us to sketch in our journals. An amazing way to get every thought and idea down on paper, so its not forgotten!
I always keep a small journal in my purse. I will often pull it out while shopping, out to dinner, having a drink with friends, or just walking around town. Has it happened to you when you saw something so inspiring, but could not find a pen and paper to jot it down?
I have three journals at all times. One in my purse, another in my "art studio" and one next to my bed. Since I sketch so many things, I often take my favorite pages out of old sketch books and put it in a notebook to have everything together.
Let me know if you keep a journal, and if it helps you!
