What a brilliant way to use an office supply! I am inspired to know that other visual artists are comfortable practicing their drawing skills with small images. This technique works for me too. By keeping the drawing image size small, I don’t get overwhelmed with the large paper size. I usually draw a small rectangular shaped box on my page and use this area for the drawing. What do you know, Post-it notes as a sketching tool!
This idea is from Ricky Wilson-Cloot, (better known as Ricky Trickartt), who is a graphic artist based in London. Here is a quote from Ricky’s website “I began to convince myself I couldn’t draw when I got out of practice, and found myself a little daunted by big canvases. I found post-it notes to be small and friendly enough for getting ideas down, but disposable enough if it goes wrong.”
His website has more of these post-it note images. This site is fun because you can click on the sketchbook to turn each page.
