Finishing a Notebook or Sketchbook

I finished a sketchbook yesterday, one that I’d started around June of last year. As a total paper junkie, it’s a big deal for me to finish a sketchbook because I tend to have at least 8 different books (in a variety of sizes and paper types) going at all times and it often seems like I’ve been working in the same books for years with no end in sight.

I don’t have the same type of rituals for finishing a sketchbook/starting a new one as I do with my notebooks – my only “thing” is to make sure I have another one ready to start if it happens to be one of my favorite books. I do try and keep my notebooks/journals separate from my sketchbooks in that I may may make art in my journals but I don’t typically write in my sketchbooks.

Looking back through old sketchbooks is interesting in that I think it’s easier to see growth (artistic or otherwise) since the means of expression is primarily visual.

Do you doodle/draw in your notebooks or keep a separate sketchbook?
