A Weekend Doodle Diary






Last weekend I took Jack along to a little weekend getaway with my mum and two sisters. We rented out a really lovely house in the farmy hills of Cumbria. It was a massive and weird and lovely thing to introduce Jack to my family for the first time. Amazingly, they got on really well. If they hadn't, Jack wouldn't have been able to flee anyway. Many hills, no Uber.

As some of you will know, I've actually switched degree courses to Illustration (from Graphic Design), and our summer project is to keep a sketchbook. I started this summer very enthusiastic about it, however, such is life, I've been an absolute shit and have not kept up with it very well at all. Part of the problem is that I've never had a single sketchbook before. I tend to have many on the go and grab one whenever I feel a new product design bouncing around in my head. So, on Friday the 12th I sat in a coffee shop and decided to draw what I'd done that day, and it turned into quite a fun little weekend series. I hope you find it fun to read through. A pen vlog. For obvious reasons I'm very happy I documented it :')

Equipment:
Uni pin fine liner in 0.2
Promarker in Cool Grey 2

    1. Thank you! It was indeed :) I also like the idea of doodling less active days because it might be more inventive and funny. x

  5. This is such a neat idea. My cousin completed an illustration course, and I really love noseying through her and her friend's sketchbooks - so reading this was very similar to that! I hope you're enjoying the swap to illustration and I'm glad to hear you has a lovely getaway :-)

  6. This is such a lovely way to document for a blog post! I do something similar in my planner/journal but never as cute or well planned, haha. Hope to see more soon!
