SEW YOUR OWN SKETCHBOOK










All ya gotta do is place drawing paper over heavy stock or something else for a cover. Install a heavy duty needle in your machine, sew the center and fold. DONE
I trimmed mine into this shape for a composition challenge. Enjoy.

Beautiful sketchbook!

Marlo said...

haha, thanks ben. you're the one who told me to post it!

Seo Kim said...

HAHA!! love those Noam expressions. these are all hulahilarious

Benjamin said...

No problem. They are great drawings. You should post some more! Dolphin Scott and the Dylan face.

Marlo said...

thanks Seo! I think you were still there or you left to go see deerhoof or camel toe

Marlo said...

Maybe I should color those others a bit more first. Thanks for the encouragement, Ben. Sorry I drew Scott more than you. I think I just loved his 80's bangs.

im so prettyyyyyyyy
i wish we had all gone to see camel toe

Marlo said...

half of the human race could provide you with one to look at, for a price

Benjamin said...

I enjoyed that one you did of me. Though I don't blame you. Scott's 80's bangs were quite the eye treat and needed to be well documented! I think he crimped and teased the hell out of his bangs.

Marlo Meekins said...

Thanks Ben. Yes, I thought I saw a bottle of L.A. looks hair gel in his bag peeking out.

Marlo Meekins said...

Great piece, Marlo.

Handicap tip: If the paper's too thick, drill n' bolt.

Looks so great and cute!!!<3
I used to do my own sketch books too! But as I found out that you actually can buy some, I became lazy of doing my own. All I do now is put tacky stickers inside and draw lousy pictures in them!XD

I also like that you give your sketchbook a cool shape! Gives inspiration for new drawings!=)

And congratulations on your Japan trip and the Visa(didn't got mine!;_;)!!!:D
