These sketchbooks contain all my sketches for Akumu Ink designs as far back as 2011. That's 6 years worth of ideas and concepts! Before 2011 I would 'wing it' when it came to creating new designs, but I got really serious about capturing our ideas in this kind of way so that we could always have an archive to pull from. If you see me at a con you'll notice my sketchbook is always within reach. I try as much as I can to never miss an opportunity to put pen to paper.
