The sketchbook I’m keeping has a dual purpose of being a journal. I love maximalist design, making use of every little space on the page. Text is an incredibly simple way to achieve that. Every time someone wants to look through my sketchbook, I’m embarrassed by the writing I have in it. A solution is to make the text small, scrunched next together, and sentences are cut in half by the art so it can’t be read straight through. So if you are really inclined to read it, you’re going to have to try very, very hard. If not, then, well, at least the pictures are pretty.
