I completed one of my sketchbooks that I started back in 2012 and recorded a video of me flipping through the sketchbook and talking about what I did, what art tools I used, what I was learning etc. I used it mainly for quick watercolor cityscapes, city vignettes, seascapes, doodles, and some mixed media experiments.
If you want to get a better look at the images, there are scans of some of the drawings on my main website: Seascapes and urban sketches 2012–2016.
And here are some additional sketches that I posted here:
P.S. I updated my sketchbooks comparison post with many additional sketchbooks I've had the pleasure of testing over the years. I discovered several new favorites, as well as many duds.
I've found a few scans that I never published here, so I'm doing that today.
This is a stone arch by the coffee shop in Kostrena, where I often go for a walk. Brush pen and watercolor sketch.
I cropped the right page because it's mostly empty.
This is the bridge that connects my home island Krk with the land, viewed from the Kostrena beach.
The last one was from a few days ago when I spent a couple of days hanging out on the beach in my hometown. I also have an instagram shot of the page spread where my boyfriend sketched some geometric patterns on the other page:

Here are a few selected sketches from my recent vacation in my hometown.
Pencil and watercolor in a small Moleskine watercolor notebook.
Brush pen and watercolor in a Canson sketchbook. The shadow is pretty terrible, I know.
Tomorrow, I'll post some fantasy sketches, yay!

This place hasn't been updated in a while... I had dedicated the majority of my free time to client projects (this is now changing). I still sketch every single day, but most of it is not very good.
Here are some sketches I did recently. Top left is view from my window in Pilot Parallel pen which doesn't have waterproof ink. Bottom left is again, view from my window, this time in waterproof brush pen. On the right are some things that caught my attention.
This following sketch is something I completely about. I couldn't decide whether to draw a boy or a girl so I drew something that was not obviously either. Ang he/she has a huge nose.
I have some new sketches on the way. If you'd like to be updated more regularly, you can follow me on instagram :)
I haven't updated this blog in a long time, so here are some selected entries from various short trips I've taken in the past few weeks.
Orchid branch I painted at my parents' place during my Easter visit. Watercolor in a small Moleskine watercolor sketchbook.
View over the Kvarner bay from the hill Veli Vrh I sketched last weekend. Pencil and watercolor in a Canson sketchbook.
Apple tree in my friend's yard I sketched last weekend when I visited him. Pencil and watercolor in a Canson sketchbook.
If you're wondering what else I've been doing, you might want to check out my post on my other blog: Komfor band logo design process. There are a lot of sketches in that post as well.
