pen drawings in my moleskine

I usually keep this small moleskine in my bag.   I've been caught without it though and use my calendar book or bits of paper on hand. I sketch mostly when I'm waiting or when I want to sketch quickly and without corrections.

Recently, I got contacts.  I'm liking how they work for the most part.  I am nearsighted, so when I wear glasses, I take them off for reading and doing my art.  In the past with contacts, I've never been able to read or do my art while wearing them.

However, this eye doctor suggested I try the monovision method for contacts.  Have you ever had the monovision contacts (one side is for reading, the other side is for seeing far)?  It is really freaky how this works!  I can read and see far.  The division of my sight is somewhat noticeable when I'm reading but still comfortable.

love seeing your sketches, something so awesome about drawings that do not get corrected.

nothing makes me happier than opening up my little purse moleskine. :) Even looking back at my really old ones is nice, because I can see how much I've improved. Love yours!

Enjoyed your sketches on the go. I like the idea of keeping a moleskin and pencil or pen in my bag on the go! :)

Very fun to see you sketches, and how your sight affects your drawing process. I've had glasses all my life (since I was 10 yrs old) and haven't tried contacts. I'd feel naked without my glasses, they are such a part of me. ;o) Lovely to see the sketch of Sputnik... Happy Week, Juana ((HUGS))
