Sketchbooks are a repository of possibility. They function as personal diaries, travel journals, reference books, a place to jot down simple notes, make thumbnail sketches, create pictures or plan grand adventures. They provide a safe place to try out ideas and practice techniques.

Doodling and playing with art materials can yield many new possibilities for those who didn’t know they had the ability to express themselves in this manner. Our personal interpretations of subject matter are just waiting to be unearthed.
