This year’s filled up Field Notes notebooks all piled up:
And spread out:
I use them mostly for to do lists, quick capture and tracking of various short term goals. The Signature Sketchbook is full of doodles, inktober drawings and rough sketches. My favourite by far has been “Dime Novel”. My least favourite has been surprisingly “Costal”. The cover and design are gorgeous but the reticle grid is just too dark to make it enjoyable to use.
Watched the 1st “Iron Man” movie again today, and I forgot how funny it was.

Watching Neil Gaiman’s livestream of “Art Matters” and feeling inspired.
