“State of Mind” Moleskine Sketch

My first “Moleskine” sketch was published recently on SkineArt.com, a gallery where uses submit their creative works produced in Moleskine® notebooks (Moleskine is pronounced mol-a-skeen’-a).

Here’s the blurb about the image I wrote for the site:

I use my Moleskine mainly for doing logo design sketches, but every-so-often when I had a little time to spare, I drew this piece on one squared-page. I named it “State of Mind”, which can be seen in the top right.

The whole thing is loosely based on whatever I was thinking when I added an element to it. Overall, I worked on it (with a ball-point pen) over the course of 3 months.

↑ I uploaded the sketch to Dribbble, too. I changed the colour and received a positive reaction.

I plan to “get back to my roots” and do more sketching in the future. With all the great technology that is available to designers, lets not forget the greatness of pen + paper!

Do you sketch at all? Share your thoughts below, and maybe leave a link to your work…
