Sketchbook Envy - Stunning Work From the Sketchbook of Steve Simpson

A sharp intake of breath when I saw these sketchbook pages by illustrator Steve Simpson. Oooohhhh....how I wish they were pages from my own sketchbook! Please enjoy this inspiration and be motivated to get sketching in your own. What a joy and an important part of the process the sketchbook can be.
