I'm a bookbinder with a love of reading, video games, writing, and procrastination. For a long time (since I can remember, really) I have always thought that I work better under the pressure created by my own preemptive laziness, and though I'm sure that this is probably not true I still always do things at the last minute, without fail. This sketchbook, for example, was completed on 01/27/2015 because I thought the due date was 01/31; even with the date extension I am postmarking it tomorrow morning (03/31) simply because I kept putting it off.
I have a hard time talking about things that bother me and a very easy time writing about them. This has only become more true with the internet. I don't know what it is about the majority of us 20-somethings that like to broadcast our problems to complete strangers while keeping our worries and thoughts close to our chest around those we want to protect and love, but I find myself to be one of them even as it baffles me. As such, often I not only gain inspiration and camaraderie from friends and family but from artists and writers of little to no acclaim, having found their work in random places online when everyone else I know is asleep or away. This sketchbook is my contribution to that weird sort of solace. I hope to be a piece of randomness that makes someone feel a little better during a dark time.
