My sketchbook practice started in high school with my art teacher, Mr Spicer. Fridays were "Sketchbook Fridays" and we would spend the entire period working on whatever prompt he gave us to explore. And then when I was in AP Art, he started to show us what sketchbooks could look like if you made them into a daily practice. The way people can think with their hands has never ceased to amaze me.
After high school and college, my sketchbook practice was sporadic for a while (being a sleep-deprived mom will do that to you), but now I am carrying one with me almost everywhere. I have one that goes to work, I have 3 or 4 at home. Being able to rough out ideas when they strike is extremely satisfying. Not all ideas become finished works, but it's nice to have a physical record of my progress.
Peptober Day 5 was supposed to happen on Tuesday, October 5, but I had a full day of work followed by metalsmithing class. That's why you're getting a 2-for-1.

That's all I've got for you today friends!
