I was the type of person who doesn't even want to open a sketchbook, afraid that I might ruin it and that other people won't like it. But when I watched this video, I began to realize that doing art is not all about making it perfect, it's all about making it unique and expressing yourself. Being yourself is a masterpiece and being unique is already perfect. Thanks a Lot😊😊😊 Reply :V November 17, 2018 Others: i wanna make my first page perfectMe: OK FIRST PAGE HERE WE GO LETS DRAW A BRAINSTORM IDEA OH CRAP IT LOOKS BAD OH WELL I DONT CARE(ps no joke i legitimately dont care of what my first page cuz the person that is flipping ur sketchbook will probs forget it when they finish looking at ur sketchbook) Reply Im Batman November 18, 2018 OMG did just here 2:29 I'm in love with a ghost?

Thank you for inspiring me Reply Madison Pons2007_ November 25, 2018 Me and my best friend really like art. Not trying to be mean but I’m a little bit better then her and everyday she comes into school saying I’m better then her at everything ( in the morning on the bus I sketch in my sketchbook) because she looks in my sketchbook. I say you’ll get better but she barely draws. It’s just confusing Reply Farhana Subhani November 26, 2018 Happy birthday to you Anna Reply Shee Zan November 28, 2018 NICEE Reply Devil- Gacha November 28, 2018 On my first page it’s just drawings of eyes… lots of eyes!

I’m planning to have another sketchbook and this ideas are great! Thank you! Reply Jaybaby December 11, 2018 I actually use the first page for testing new products. I keep it very very neat and organized. I label everything I test do I know which pens will work for what, couch my terrible memory won't help. I usually use my go to mechanical pencil, a 02 micropen, and no color or highlighters to make a contrast (coloring only the eyes and shirt, etc).
