First off, I love sketching. It's not just that I like it, but it also serves as a necessary part of my creative process. I always carry one in my back pocket and I have a larger one in my backpack. These two bundles of paper give me the opportunity to record and document my thought process. No app has come near as a replacement or even an alternative.
Ok, so this spring I watched the 2 season of Peaky Blinders (https://www.netflix.com/title/80002479) and loved it. As a tribute and immensely enjoying the props, I set out to design my own shoulder holster but swapping the gun for my sketchbook and pen/pencil.
Wearing it I feel unbeatable just like Thomas Shelby aka Cillian Murphy.
Work in Progress:
It took some time punching holes and sewing all parts together,
but oh so much fun!
