I love love love little books with blank papers (see 'dummie'). It allows me to play, which is in my opinion the most important (and fun) skill for an artist, and maybe even for human beings in general. The last one is especially precious to me, because I'm getting better at the 'playing'-thing. Doing, not thinking (that's the hard part for me) Playing with colours and shapes, quick drawings and ideas and inspirations written everywhere. I'm so excited about realizing them!
And I also started a new one today! Exclusively for colour combinations (first photo).
What about you? Do you keep a sketchbook or some kind of journal?
