I adore sketchbooks. All drawings are from life, usually done very quickly, just a few seconds for the quick gestures and  maybe 3-5 minutes for more detailed stuff, but they are seldom longer than 10 - 15 minutes. There's nothing  more compelling to me than the stories of the people all around us every day. The best way to view this gallery is click on an image and use the arrow keys to flip through the drawings.
