One of the conditions I set myself was to make the sketchbook entirely visual (my usual practice is to write loads of notes). So far there has been a fair amount of back and forth between work in the sketchbook and using Affinity to manipulate images on my laptop.

You can sign up to the project, receive a blank sketchbook, fill it up and submit it to the world’s largest collection of sketchbooks here:
