I didn't plan to have this little sketchbook with birds in it. In the fantasies in my head, what I really had was a wonderful watercolor sketchbook full of my perfect drawings of birds and nature.
I recently came across this little book I bought ages ago, because I'm a sucker for anything with graph paper. I was doodling in it with words and birds, and before you could blink, I have myself a bird sketchbook. It's not the best paper for watercolors, but I like the crinkly sound the pages make once they dry.
This is the original doodle made from looking at a magazine picture.
