Nicely laid out with descriptions of each artist and many different techniques and media. Somewhat disappointing in comparison to Cathy Johnson's book "Artist's Journal Workshop" or Danny Gregory's two sketchbook overviews "An Illustrated Life" and "An Illustrated Journey".

I like books like this just for the inspration.

HASH(0xa03a44c8) out of 5 stars The work behind the work July 12 2012
By Rose A. Bradley - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book offers one the chance to look at what these very good artist do before the do their very good work. There are clues here for the rest of us. The book is organized by artist name, with several pages written by the artist themselves along with photos of their journal or sketch book pages. These are so enjoyable. For visual learners, These peeks are worth a thousand words. The comments by the artists are enriching in other ways, not just "how to", they describe their creative habits, and where they find their joy. The reader can enjoy a casual relationship with this book, opening anywhere to look at one artist and be encouraged, inspired, helped.

HASH(0xa03a48f4) out of 5 stars Liberating June 13 2013

Like SBC 1 it has helped me "loosen up"in my sketch book. I use it to explore ideas and develop ideas that may not go anywhere, but that does not matter. It is important to do something, anything, and let it go where it may.
This message comes through loud and strong with both these books. A valuable asset for anyone wanting to do any type of creative endevour, wether for professional, study or personal (the best of all) development.

HASH(0xa03a4b1c) out of 5 stars Great Resource! Aug. 6 2012

I teach a sketchbook course every fall semester at Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, Colorado. One of the goals of this course is to get students drawing and to help them open their minds to what is possible in a sketchbook. This book is a great resource because it does just that by showing the pages of sketchbooks from other artists in a great format that is well designed.

HASH(0xa03a4a14) out of 5 stars This is not a "How To" book but... Dec 21 2012

I have both Sketchbook 1 and Sketchbook 2 and I love them both. I am fairly new to sketchbooking but certainly not to painting,I do both oils and watercolor. These books will open your eyes to all sorts of your visual experiences, not just grand tours of Europe but everyday scenes in your own backyard. Either of these books will introduce you to a whole new world just waiting to be painted.

I loved this book. It gave me valuable insight to the drawings of professional artists which they are just relaxing in their sketchbooks.
