Memory Mod by sadwonderland Memory Mod by sadwonderland
My newest sketchbook mod. I do a new cover for each of my sketchbooks, not only because it's neat, but because I literally have SHELVES of sketchbooks, dozens and dozens of them, and it's impossible to tell which contain what drawings unless I do covers for them, to remind me of the general contents.

This sketchbook I did using an old framing magazine that my parents had laying around. I cut out a bunch of neat pictures of frames, then I cut out pictures of people and things and inserted them into the frames. It came out pretty cool! What's funny is I often put my iPod down on top of my sketchbook on my table, then I can't FIND it, because my iPod has a custom steampunk skin that blends right into the book cover!

This cover is unusual because I actually did it right-side up, whereas I usually do them upside down, because I draw in the books upside down (I draw left-handed and the spiral binding gets in my way otherwise). But although the cover is modded right-side up, the art inside is still upside down :)

I do covers for my sketchbooks, too! Hmm, I'm left-handed as well, but I never turned my book upside-down..makes sense now that I think about it..I think I like the brassy/antique/mechanical look of yours..

Haha, I draw upside down in mine too cause I'm also left handed. xD
I really like the idea of creating a cover for a sketch book, I might do the same. Also for organizational reasons.

Fantastic! I Just did my sketchbook steampunk-y and it doesn't look nearly as good as this!
Is that Danny Elfman I see on the iPod?

Do your parents read Bizenghast? Like, do they support what you do? Sometimes I worry that when/if I become a writer, my family won't support me. O_O;;;

That is one awesome cover collage. I'm starting to see a lot more steam punk, and it's easy to see why. =O

I know what you mean by the spiral binding. I never draw or write with my left hand, but I'm a recycle freak and I always use both sides of the paper.
