NEXT!

Just finished my first moleskin and the majority of it is actually filled with location sketching.  I'm going to be posting a few select pages here and there.  The top page is the earliest of these three.  Probably done a month or two ago.  The middle page was probably done about a week ago.  This last page was done a few days ago.  Just wanted to show some of the other crap that comes out of my head.

I never put too much stock in location sketching but now that i have been doing a lot of it i have realized how much it helps.  I'm a lot faster and more confident with my lines.  It also helps tremendously in building up your visual vocabulary.  I guess everyone was right after all.  Let me know what you think!

Dude congrats on finishing up the sketchbook! Is this one a pocket version of the bigger one?? Man I can't seem to finish a book off. I'm always jumping back and forth to different papers. Really love all different variety's of work and mediums used. Very inspirational work Justin. I need to go and get out and do more observational studies. Look forward to your next completed sketchbook.

Very good, i'm trying to do 2 sketches a week, but it's hard to find time. I like your lines very much.(Sorry for my English).
