My First Sketchbook
I came across my very first sketchbook while organising my bookcases on the weekend. I have a memory of doing these exact pages, sitting at the coffee table, with my safety scissors, clag paste and textas. I remember we were all in the lounge room after dinner and that we were watching "Hey Hey It's Saturday".
I would have been 4 or 5 years old, and evidently I had a worrying obsession with Princess Di as she features heavily throughout the pages.
That blue and orange thing in the image above is a toilet (can't you tell?), and I know I thought that was the coolest drawing of a toilet I'd ever seen. I remember standing in the bathroom studying the shapes of the toilet to make it as realistic as I could. Not sure where the colour scheme came from! The little book cover pasted next to it is called "A Guide to Modern Etiquette."
Hopefully I'll come across some more drawings from my younger years soon! Happy Wednesday!
