IF: Prepare

File pile (before)
The file pile before.

File pile (after)
And the file pile after.

Always at the beginning of the year I prepare my paperwork (which I should have been doing all along). Not my favourite activity, but at least it gave me an opportunity to sketch. And it does feel good once done.


  1. I love these sketches and they're providing some much needed inspiration - my files still look like your "before" picture!
    Do you use pen and watercolour or two colours of pen?

  2. Thanks Emma!

    These ones were done using a basic black pen and the highlights using a Faber-Castell Pitt pen (wamr grey III).

    I love the Pitt pens when working in my sketchbook - they don't bleed through!

  3. that's a good tip! i like the letraset markers but they don't half ooze.
    thanks for stopping by my blog too :)

  4. Your papers look to be in order--and documented with a couple of really fun sketches! :)

  5. Omigosh I can't look. Reminds me how badly I need to organize. These are nice. I like the effect of the grey pen.

  6. I'm impressed that you've done your paperwork already! I love the drawings, great inspiration from everyday life. Thanks for your kind words on my blog..

  7. Perfect solution to "prepare"! You did a really nice job on these drawings... it is tedious to draw so much paper! Good luck with everything!

  8. I love these simple but lovely line drawings, and they convey the concept very well!
