Sketching the Everyday
It all started in 2018 when I came across an account on Instagram where a lady is sketching on a small moleskine pocket day planner and it just hit me. What a brilliant idea! By then I have been trying to adapt the habit of sketching daily and keeping it consistent only to fail time and time again. Here it was, small page pre-lined, pre-dated wee book only waiting to be filled with one small memory a day. I can do that. So, I raced online to order my 2018 daily planner, anxiously waited for its arrival and once again failed; for you can see from the picture I haven’t even opened it. A year later I found myself in a bookshop in Zagreb and there it was. Another moleskine pocket daily planner waiting for me to be picked up. This time with red cover. Thoughts raced through my head as I was debating whether or not to get it, after all I still have my 2018 sitting on the shelf. Then a voice just said, this time it will be different. This one is red, it’s bound to drag some positive energy and I will do it! I picked it up, bought it and the rest was history.
This is a glimpse into my day to day ramblings, musing in other words snippets of my life.
Come along while I take my lines on daily walks keeping my sketching alive and keeping that habit going.
