We noticed the stars around 10:30 pm last night. During these crazy, upsetting times, I'm thankful for our summer nights, and dreaming for better tomorrows #sdionbakersketchjournal

Love my bujo... Thank you @sdionbakerdesign for getting me going!

Beautiful show at the @drawingcenter with so much inspiration. My son took this photo of me sketching in my journal. πŸ“·@brooklynianb #journal #sketchjournal #sdionbakersketchjournal

I'm just 5 feet tall, so it's hard to find dresses that fit. So I just look, and illustrate them in my journal. ✍️ #detail #sdionbakersketchjournal

@Regrann from @sdionbakerdesign - Yesterday I painted a sweet, sleeping tabby cat, I saw in the window of the @catcafebk I painted him/her in honor of my niece and nephew, who despise the adorable creatures, much to their aunts dismay. I & O, this is for you. Aunty Sam loves you! πŸ˜˜πŸ™€πŸˆ
(I love this page, it has wrapping paper from Christmas, and torn Brooklyn Roasting cup collaged, and blended in, and subtle color)

I follow a number of impressive graphic designers - all of whom I've never met or know personally - because I believe it forces me to be current and pushes me to be better at my craft. I've been following @sdionbakerdesign for a while and when the opportunity came up to get a hold of one of her sketchbooks I jumped at the chance. This is No. 29/30 of the First Edition of her 'Summer 2015 Sketchjournal' - an illustrated chronicle of her 28-day travel adventure in #Scandinavia with her two boys. Her illustrations are so captivating, with attention to detail so precise, it's hard to believe they are created from pen and paper. I've been to Scandinavia before and I never saw it in this way; seeing it through her eyes makes me wish I had. It also makes me wish I had doodled more as a child and as a result, inspires me to encourage my kids to draw, imagine, create and doodle every single day. Plus, anyone who likes #acnestudios is pretty darn cool in my book. #sdionbakersketchjournal

Plans ce soir? Join us at @ateliercologneparis tonight from 7pm to 9pm and explore the world of fragrance while experiencing illustrations from Brooklyn based designer @sdionbakerdesign and enjoying custom paired treats by us of course! #mamanevents #mamannyc #AtelierCologne #SDionBakerSketchJournal

Teaser alert! πŸ™ŠIn the corner of my sketchbook a sneek peek at one of my recent jobs! I was asked to make some illustrations for the latest @artsnacks Travel Collection. I jumped as soon as I was asked since this box will contain exactly what I love - art supplies to use on the go. Super honored to have collaborated with the Art Snacks founders on this special collection! More soon - follow @artsnacks for updates. And if you want to pre-order a box, I promise you wont be disappointed (my illustrations, inspired by my own travels, and vintage maps, sprinkled throughout, too)! http://bitly.com/ATC-2016 or click on the link in their bio.

Once again, I cant stop thinking about the news, and am finding it hard to find the words to explain it all to my 13 year old. Today's page is a letter to my boys, that I find a bit too personal to share, so instead here's a peaceful moment from yesterday when we met friends at Louse Point for some paddle boarding and swimming. I drew this in just a short time, as the tide moved the boat, and Cleo moved around. It was a challenge to get it all "Plein Air" but I managed - I am trying to sketch in the moment as often as possible. β›±#sdionbakersketchjournal

Love this artwork done by this artist I follow! She is so good. @sdionbakerdesign

I spent about 3 hours on this page, which turned out to be one big summertime doodle. Here are two corners of the page. The whole thing reminds me of my childhood. The perfect summer day, that began with a bike ride, an ant and a caterpillar walked onto my sketchbook, while my boys played tennis and swam. A day not to worry. And the quote came from a childhood friend who shared it on Facebook. Scroll to see both sides. πŸ›πŸŒΌπŸŒˆπŸ’¦πŸš²πŸœ#sdionbakersketchjournal

The sleeping kitty now has some coffee, and a clementine to keep her company. I've been working with gouache lately, and loving the rich colors. New supplies given to me from @themetstore x @caran_dache in prep for a live drawing and talk I'll be doing at the Met Store on 5th Avenue in September. More info soon! β˜•οΈπŸŠ#sdionbakersketchjournal

More journaling artists appreciation. This time the incredible @sdionbakerdesign I mean have you seen her work? Have you marveled at this woman and what she does, all on the pages of sketchbooks and journals?
I have. .

Yesterday we picked our boys up from camp, after 3 weeks away, so naturally my page was all things camp πŸ’¦πŸ“πŸ•πŸ”¦πŸšΈπŸ”₯πŸœπŸ«πŸ›ΆπŸŽΎπŸΉ #overnightcamp #sdionbakersketchjournal

Yesterday I welcomed August by making friends with the local #dogwalker and 8 of her buddies. This was a fun one to draw πŸ•πŸ©πŸ•πŸ©πŸ–€ #sdionbakersketchjournal

A peek at yesterday. A roller pen, a bunch of fresh lavender, and a feather #sdionbakersketchjournal

Yesterday's page with a seagull that landed right in front of me in Montauk, and one of the 3 gas pumps at the General Store. ✨
Notes: this is a Moleskine sketchbook, first sketched in pencil, inked with an @copicmarker 0.1 nib multiliner, painted with Koi @sakuraofamerica watercolor paint, using a waterbrush (not markers), and then inked again with finishing touches. ✍🏼 #timelapse #process #sdionbakersketchjournal

Sneak peek πŸ™I received a limited edition of folded notecards - they can also be framed as prints - with 15 NYC Storefronts (15 cards in each set). Stay tuned next week for an update on boxes for sale! There will only be 8 boxes available, so if you're interested, feel free to send me a DM so that I can let you know as soon as they are listed. #sdionbakerdesign #sdionbakersketchjournal #illustration #nyclove #storefronts #watercolor #penandink #limitededition #vscocam #vsco

#fbf to July 28 last year in Spain, with a birthday shout out to my favorite childhood author and illustrator #beatrixpotter πŸ₯•These pages take me right back, yet also keep me present, appreciative of the days passed, and all the pages turned πŸ’­#sdionbakersketchjournal

Yesterday in 10 (mostly food related) parts, and there are emojis for all: πŸ‘β˜•οΈπŸ€ΈπŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸΆπŸ–ŒπŸŽ¨πŸ₯‘πŸš‡πŸ•πŸ₯—πŸ“¦πŸͺ #sdionbakersketchjournal
