Sketchbook Pages

They say that if you haven’t used something for a couple of years, it might as well not be there. Get rid of it. Keep life current. Simple.

In my case, not so. Not that I’m a hoarder (I’m a hoarder) but some things I can’t let go; photographs, videos (though never watched), diaries, cassettes, tapes, albums, memorabilia, etc., etc.

And many boxes of sketchbooks. I can’t pass an art shop without buying a sketchbook.

There are hundreds of them. Several have only a few pages used and then nothing. Others are crammed with lyrics, doodles, chord sequences, lists. And the odd drawing.

Recently I was rummaging through them and here are some of the things I found.

Boy and Guitar was published in a book of poetry called But For The Children, by Bob Young.

At Hornsey Art College in 1963, on rainy days we were sent to various museums to practice drawing.

    Hi Roger, I simply love that series of “Smoke rough”, very impressive. I visited Montreaux this summer for the first time, also the former Grand Hotel, and I had to think about how the sight of the smoke over Lake Geneva must have been back in 1971. Thank you for sharing. Your fan, Heidi

    Intricate weaving of elements….capturing subject matter with ease and no boundaries. Emergent, Lakeview, VIGNOGN definitely my favs.
