Keeping A Sketchbook Journal
A uniquely personal way to recall experiences

Most of us carry a camera on holiday, to significant events - and nowadays almost everywhere. Although we may get a lot of images, they don't usually recall our personal response to an experience. There is another way…
A sketch enables us to record only what is significant for us, leaving out everything else to make a unique record. It takes longer too, so we are obliged to pay more attention and be more fully in the experience. As Roger puts it:
"For much of my life I carried a sketchbook when I’ve been travelling or simply going out locally. Generally, it’s not to make a sketch which I could turn into a painting later but as a way of seeing right now. When I look back at a sketch I can recall the place; its flavour and my feelings in a way that a photograph fails to capture."
Roger is an artist, art therapist and Alexander Technique teacher. His friends urged him to share his long and joyful experience of keeping his sketchbook journal.
