Several weeks ago I ordered some Moleskine books from Amazon and, after almost a month, they finally showed up. I hooted and hollered and then got Doodler's Block. What am I supposed to doodle? What will be the first thing to draw in my mini-sketch book? Pressure. I'm sure by the end of the day I would have doodled feverishly but for now, the pages sit blank except for the first page where I wrote my name, phone number and a $50 reward in case I lose it.
Along with the mini-sketch book, that fits comfortably in my satchel, which I get a lot of compliments on, I purchased a regular sized Moleskin featuring Snoopy. It's to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Peanuts comic strip and I love it. Just like the above book, this one sits empty with only my name, phone number and reward items filled out. Still, I'm happy.
I drew Charlie Brown on a regular piece of paper but perhaps I should re-doodle it into the mini. Seems right I suppose.
And, speaking of anniversaries, my 6th wedding anniversary is this Saturday. Already? It seems so long ago but, at the same time, not really.
