Have you ever though what would you do if your computer crashed and you lost everything? I love my computer but I also love having my sketchbook close by. I was horrified when I was away from pen and paper for a while and saw how atrocious my penmanship could become.
The other day, I thought about my scores of sketchbooks versus the thousands of files on my computer. Both are fragile. Paper burns and computers crash. But there is something about the sketchbooks that make it more likely they will last after I am gone. Paper is at least a little harder to dispose of than a computer’s memory.
