A typical sketching day for me involves a lot of sketching (and walking) plus a visit to my favourite tearoom. If I’m in Sydney it also often will contain a warmup sketch of a gothic cathedral (St Marys) and a quick version of the SOH (Sydney Opera House).
As I work on location I leave lots of white space (more options for layout later) and I vary the position of my sketches on the page. I’m trying to design a sequence of pages, not just a few individual sketches.
When I get home I add text, headings, borders and maps and tie the pages together so that they read as a single event and there is a flow from one page to the next.

And finally just a last reminder…
The Group Run-through of Sketchbook Design just started (yesterday) and it’s not too late to join.
I love how this shows your pages are done over a little time, and finishing them is a process!
Thanks Jamie – yes a lot of homework!
