    Bourin's Sketchbook. 2012. A fresh start.

    Hello. I'm Bourin. I'm 21.5 years old. I have rheumatoid arthritis and it affects only my drawing hand. C'est la vie.

    ---

    My last sketchbook was kind of a mess of no updates. Hopefully this will put pressure on me to update more. Aiming for at least once a month, for now...

    These are some very impressive pieces here, but I have to say that was not my first thought when I saw this.
    The very first thought was that this notebook reminds me of something Indiana Jones would carry in his bag, frantically flipping through the pages while some weird shit went down.
    Great job!

    There is some absolutely beautiful work in this sketchbook. Really, really moved by some pieces such as this and this.

    Take five from me and keep updating. How is the Rheumatoid Arthritis, you holding up well?

    eh, it's been worse



    rushed through the whole project giving nary a damn, everything is super sloppy and messy, paint everywhere, dropped the block a million times and only two of them lined up properly

    Oooh.... interesting sketchbook,

    Those linoleum prints of your look really nice, I have tried it myself, and it's quite hard to get clean prints, but then again I kind of like it when they look a little bit "rough".

    I also like your critters, some of them have a Silent Hill-ish feeling to them (especially the critter with pointy legs in post 4 and mr. melty-face in post 5) which I think is very nice.

    Thanks for sharing, I hope to see more soon!

    You have an excellent sense of design and a lot of creativity. Your drawing is solid and your work is very good. Keep it coming and show us more of your mind :3

    Nice work overall, especially on your multiple style exploration. I'd say your sense of imagination is the strongest aspect in those studies, so definitely keep exploring that.

    I'm digging your digital paintings. There's something almost mystical about them.

    I'm not so great at people, if I made some mistakes let me know. I think the head is too big/neck too short
