Sketchbook: Boat Ride

Maybe it’s the cover, featuring Kevin Hawkes’ adorable illustration of a porcupine sketching a frog. Maybe it’s the large, high-quality sketching paper inside. But, there’s something about this sketchbook that says, “Take me with you!” A simple gift, but one that opens up a world or open-ended creativity, and offers the kind of freedom only art gives.
