I'd like to show some sketching made while going from Rome to Singapore to Dili. I stopped over all these wonderful places and... suddenly popped out from my pocket one of my handmade micro sketchbooks. Yes I keep always one or two even near my passport pocket, believe me or not. At least I can use them as notebooks.

This time I sketched in two micro sketchbooks that are around 6cm x 6cm so around 2 inches of side. They are made with scrap paper from my office, also the cover are made from old folders: and I like to save in this sketchbooks all the prints, marks, labels and so what so to made more visible that are recycled.

This sketching was done mainly in the time that I was not running between airports, and since I was leaving my wife alone for my new deployment, pregnant at the 8th month, 12000 km away so I awaited some good mood to sketch.

You have a lot of great detail in that tiny sketchbook. It is a great idea to always have a sketchbook handy.

Wonderful! Do you carry a mini watercolor kit in that pocket too?

Nicely done. Hope that the rest of the pregnancy goes smoothly and maybe you can sketch the new arrival. I hear they sleep a lot to begin with :)

wow, that is a tiny size sketchbook but you have done a great job of capturing the scenes. Especially like the food tray one.

Thanks!
They are fun to sketch but also very funny to make. I made from scrap paper from my office... they are simply print trims. yes I can sketch on every kind of paper. :wave:
