I’m so thrilled to start my guest writing here by showing you some never seen before glimpses of Simon Wild's sketchbooks. His work is so vibrant and full of energy.
I met him recently when he came down to London to meet us at a graphic art fair and it was great to browse through his moleskine while we were having lunch by the river. I noticed his fab website doesn’t have a sketchbook section and asked him for a few spreads and a few words on the relevance of his sketchbooks with relation to his working process.
Here’s what Mr. Wild had to say...
Sometimes I doodle recklessly, sometimes I observe with relentless patience, sometimes I glue things down like an angry child, but it all helps to feed the creative spirit, helping to shape the work whatever form it chooses.
I never ever leave home without a sketchbook in my pocket. My sketchbook is a magical place where the real world and the imagination enjoy a ritualistic courtship every time I put pen to paper.
Very inspiring indeed… thanks Simon! For more of Simon Wild’s visual delights, visit his website.
