The thing I admired most about Chris Ware's sketchbooks is how much stuff he packed in there; so many different mediums, colors, subjects... Of course, he's not the only one to do this, he himself was influenced by Crumb, but that sketchbook had a big influence in how I approached my own offhand doodles. Before, they were full of half-finnished pinnups with occasional attempts at drawing backgrounds, now they are...this. Still not much color, and not that much crammed onto the page. But at least I'm saving money on paper.
