Beautiful Examples Of Moleskine Art

More than quick sketches and drawings, Moleskine art can encompass mixed media and even digital art. The imperfect lines, smudges and wrinkles give it dimension and raw honesty that more than ever are sought by digital artists and implemented in software. Regardless of any advancement in technology, pen and paper will always be the number once choice for any budding artist or seasoned illustrator. [Content Care Oct/27/2016]

No theme or medium is ever neglected for the Moleskine treatment if the mood strikes the artist, spawning art like no other. With abstracts, travel themes and even other-worldly monsters, this collection of Moleskine art sketches1 and drawings2 is sure to inspire thought and spark your muse. Below you will find diverse styles created for a medium that refuses to die.

    @kew
    Moleskine are not to expensive, if you concentrate on the value they give you and not on the production costs.

    It is a wonderful opportunity to get to see inside the sketch books of so many artists and doodlers. It is equally liberating to know it is so easy to share “informal” creativity with others.

    Some of this is good sketching, but the other 50% looks like the type of crap one finds scrawled in a high school composition book. Well, if you love craft-less and heavy-handed scribbles of dragons and lightening bolts, then I guess this would be a great collection.
    I’ve seen far more interesting sketch books than many of these.

    it’s so rude and shows your ignorance when you put down someone’s art because YOU don’t like it. I just read the post from Earl, I just had to say that everyone deserves to be treated with respect, whether you like their work or not.

    This is a truly inspiring post – THANKS! I got myself a new kind of sketchbook for 2009. It’s quite expensive – but with more pages of heavy canvas, handcrafted leather bounding (Il Papiro Firenze). I hope it helps to advance my sketches ;) But I will stick to my Moleskine agenda (I really love them…)
