I missed working on paper and keeping sketchbooks. I've been keeping sketchbooks since I was 14 and have boxes and boxes of them. I felt like I was breaking a pretty good tradition.
Also, an issue with iPad sketching is it's not overly conducive to messiness. That cool, interesting messiness that comes out of exploring a line or a tone.
A brand new independent art supply store opened just a block down the street and I thought the timing was good to start a regular sketchbook again. Now I'm using both my iPad and my sketchbook and drawing more because of it. I can discover and explore things in any medium.
Relieved to have access to paper again.
