"I should recommend . . . keeping . . . a small memorandum-book in the breast-pocket, with its well-cut sheathed pencil, ready for notes on passing opportunities: but never being without this." John Ruskin, The Elements of Drawing, 1857
I was fortunate to be able to spend my morning having coffee and recording video with a group of artists in Cambridge, listening to and documenting their thoughts on a conceptual project. (Sara had a beautiful Coptic-bound book, so I took a snapshot of that as well...) Afterwards, I walked and talked with my sister, from Central Square to the Fogg Gallery at Harvard, where there was a show of artist's sketchbooks I had been longing to see. Inspiring to look at so many different kinds of sketchbook and so many different drawing processes.
