Diary Chooses The Owner: Blocks Notebook

My sketch books are my totems— a place where I can stain my feelings, thoughts and ideas. I love carrying and buying notebooks that are light, and do not add to the luggage.
I mostly sketch with a simple Cello MY Gel pens. I love the Faber Castell Multimark too, but the quality of the notebook pages need to be good to avoid blots and spreads.

I got this Lego Sketchbooks during one of the promotional events in my office. It was a love at first sight. This compact notebook is perfect for small purses or sling bags. Perfect for downloading all that creative fodder at any given point.

Rooted in reality – marinated on paper!

Here is a look at Nandan Joshi’s sketches – all come out to play in a palm sized blank paper. Nandan is a young copywriter whose art is ambiguous, smart, lively, and full of awkward sense of humor. I love art that doesn’t take itself too seriously and this is what I liked most about Dafty.

So here is little getting to know about the character – Dafty is a collage of doodles done with a Sharpie and an overzealous pop pink colour pen on small loose sheets.

Nandan’s sketches are explorations of witty imagery. You can follow him on http://ponderpuffman.tumblr.com/. Like him, his sketches too brim with everything unusual and perverse. His work desk is a depository of doodles, sketches, caricatures and illustrations.You can also follow him on twitter at @ponderpuffman.

For the love of typewritters!

 

I just can’t get enough of typewriters! I remember growing up when my dad used to take me to his office and I would try my hand at some vintage typewriters kept there. Then I joined a typewriter class and I was just 7 year old. You can download free typewriter postcards here: http://www.afternoonpityparty.com/2013/02/free-printables-typewriter-postcards.html.
