Writing & Sketchbooks

 

My Sketchbooks are Part of Me

These are a few pages from my current Sketchbook. I love to free write, brainstorm, do mind-maps, study and practice sketching for my next Sculpture.

I’ve written this way for over 20 years now. I’ll never forget the day I started. I was young and stressed about something happening at the Ad Agency where I was working. I took my lunch to an old park and sat under a huge tree.

I was journaling my morning when I heard God say that I needed to keep my journals and sketchbooks because someone would need them in the future. I listened but didn’t really understand. I now know that I need them.

Today I have tubs full of them and I occasionally go back to read or find some idea I had one day long ago. It always feels weird, I admit. It’s like I was a different person who wrote all of the words and sketched all of those drawings. Sometimes it feels surreal.

It feels that way because I change and grow. My perspective moves into different and newer places. So, when I hear that people don’t change, I know it’s a lie. I change. Jesus changes me.  And if He changes me He can change you too.
