🍁 Design Process | Day 20 #marchmeetthemaker
When designing my notebooks I begin with a rough size and type I would like to make (this is the Voyageur, a landscape format on-the-go sketching notebook) then proceed to work out how I can utilize a sheet of paper to its fullest with little to no waste. I draw small diagrams on paper 📝 to give myself a visual of how many pages I will need. I make prototypes to see if they function like I hope they will and then work out any quirks. On to the cover, what type of stock does it need if any Then what elements do I want to include...elastic closures, bulldog clips, carpenter pencils
@dobelldesigns Chris, here’s living proof that the sign master and legend - Mr. Victoria Signs, Graham Sanders, was here at Leap and stood literally right next to your studio.
Way before Leap and the web, I had the privilege to work as a sign painter for 7 years and was mentored by Bruce Nunn and Graham Sanders. Not only did I learn the art of hand lettering from these guys, my Aussie pal, Graham would end up playing a huge part in shaping my perspective in art & life.

Just me painting a custom sized ATL sign. 🖤
Hope your Saturday is fab!
Sometimes I find creating scenes of destruction depressing. Besides the obvious, the scenes remind me of my father’s (he was six when the war began) and his family’s pain as during the Spanish Civil War.
On market day his village, along with the family home was bombed. Two of his sisters died that day. In total thirty eight people died. At least half were kids. I remember my Spanish abuela telling me how she and the villagers dug through the rubble to find the children. All dead.
Another uncle was in an internment camp in southern France during World War II. He survived. The family story in Spain gets worse during the hunger years.
What is there to say Really. What is there to say I’m a pacifist and I despise the glorification of any war. Discussing this with Spaniards is a major no-no and risky. The history of forgetting is prevalent in Spain.
How can a wound heal without acknowledgement and discussion Or stories
