i actually 

do not support nice sketchbooks 

I think they take too much time and effort and pull out the perfectionism and insecurity in every artist and you would improve much faster sketching through a big stack of copy paper on a clipboard

and yet…

When people look at my artwork I don’t want people to think
“Oh yeah thays mel’s.”
“That’s Bernard’s, that’s not mine. That’s not for me”
“This person is beyond me.”
Do I want to be credited and recognized for my work? Of course. No artists should expect less. But when people look at my artwork I want it to be accessible to them. I want them to be ale to say
“This was a big part of my life. This inspired me.”
“This helped me understand this.”
“This introduced me to this.”

And I know my artwork isn’t at that level yet and that’s what I’m working towards.

A lot of people say that you should make art for yourself first and while I find it important to make art to please myself, I firmly subscribe to the idea of making art for the people and for the community. If an artist creates something and it benefits people, inspires then, then in my opinion that’s when artwork is at it’s peak.
