I still haven’t put a single mark in my Sketchbook Project sketchbook. I had this thought that I would fill it with portraits of all my Twitter followers, and there are some really cool faces to do, let me tell ya. When I got the idea, I had as a follower the famous fashion designer, Johan Lindeberg of Diesel and J. Lindeberg fame, and most recently BLK DNM, his new company. I was very honored to have him as a follower.
Anyway, he’s got a very distinct look, and I thought I’d start the sketchbook with him because of that. Plus, his thing is black, so I figured a black and white drawing would be easy enough. I wanted to do a practice drawing in the Moleskine sketchbook, and have just finished that.
I was almost finished last night when I thought I’d Tweet it as it stood, and mention his handle, maybe DM him to let him know. I tweeted it, but got my ego deflated a bit when I saw he no longer followed me. You know what, though? I’m good. I’m not famous… YET! I still admire the man for all he’s done and is doing, so Johan… we’re cool, brother. 🙂
I saw he’s going to London next week. I’ll be there the week after. Maybe we’ll cross paths somewhere.
