Sketchbook/Notebook Presentation

Next week I'll give a little talk and presentation on my sketchbooks at the local school of architecture. I've been doing this for over 35 years and they have served me well in terms of professional and personal development. Many of the ideas presented in this blog were born in my notebooks.

Take pictures, draw, write, take notes on what you're learning and doing. Be mindful, practice careful observation, go for depth and the heights and not just breadth. Celebrate and commiserate, read between the lines and investigate. In a couple of years, see the transformation.

I make no claims about myself, one way or another - but I would not like to guess how far from my present locus I would be without them.
