Illustrating in my Moleskine Art Sketchbooks is a form of meditation for me. I create my Moleskine art freehand using my Noodler’s Ahab Flex fountain pen. I rarely have a plan in mind before I start drawing in my sketchbook. Basically, I just let my hands do the thinking. Along the way, I’ve learned to embrace mistakes and find ways of incorporating the “surprises” into the drawing and finished illustration. Needless to say, the process often presents many unusual and sometimes delightful discoveries along the way.
