When I first started sketching and blogging, I devoted an entire month to collecting bits of things that I referred to as my cabinet of curiosities. For those of you who don’t know what this particular type of cabinet is, according to author Patrick Mauriès, they were “rooms of wonders… the astonishing creation of collectors who wished to gather together everything, all knowledge – animal, vegetable, or man-made – into a single unimaginable space. An entire universe in miniature.” Cool, huh? The unimaginable space, in my case, was simply a new miniature sketchbook. So, join me now for a little collection of stories those tiny sketches inspired.
