I have only managed to keep a sketch book/ journal a few times in my life. This era of financial upheaval and personal growth- apparently with growing pains seems like a great time to start again.
In looking at my successful diaries of the past they have been small and written over an old book. This appeals to both the recycler in me and my love of layering contexts.
A while ago my pal Kiera gave me a book of furrier patterns. I’m not sure this is how she’s hope it would be used, but I decided to have it cut down into 2 sketch books and 2 stacks of scratch paper.
The very charming Doug Morris of South Side Design and Build was willing to make the cuts for me. 10 minutes of his time and we have a perfectly scaled new book. Eat your heart out William McDonough.
Southside is your goto for fancy museum display design and installation as well as roof garden stuff that Bowie and Iman like.
