I have been meeting weekly with my long time friend Marlow and his sister Kayte at her studio, and we talk, he writes, she studies, and I draw. It's been fun doing this and it absolutely makes me want to sketch more. This quickly drawn sketch is Marlow's notebook. I asked him how old it was because he is one to make things last, not liking all that is disposable and new. Kudos to him. I have known a version of this notebook or another throughout the years and he uses it to jot down notes for his writing. I have always been fascinated by it: in such a small space it holds so many things people have said, so many things he saw, and so many ideas for inspiration. It's a world in its own.
