Today I took about 20-30 minutes of completely interrupted time to draw this binder clip. I think that I was stopped every 2 minutes. I’m quite fond of the results actually! This was done in my moleskin sketchbook with a 02 Micron black pen.
I used Sue Bleiweiss’ The Sketchbook Challenge to prompt this drawing. She has a chapter devoted to drawing the inanimate object, or tools we use daily, as inspiration for sketching. In fact this particular chapter is what grabbed my attention when I saw this book at the library. I will most likely use another chapter from her book as inspiration in my next drawing. Current rating of the book: B, best for mixed media artists looking for creative daily inspiration. More for the “crafty artist” than a traditional fine artist.
