Painted Moleskine Sketchbooks

15 10 2008

Here is an example of a moleskine sketchbook I have painted for a client:

I used their logo and painted “MCDD” with a red square on a standard sized Moleskine squared notebook. The notebook itself has grid paper inside, as the client is an architect. This was done for M. Carlton Design and Development. You can visit their website here: 

You may be asking me: What is a Moleskine notebook? Well, to answer that question, I have included an excerpt directly from their website:

What is Moleskine? ( mol-a-skeen’-a)
MOLESKINE is the legendary notebook that has held the inspirations and ideas of everyone from Van Gogh, Picasso and Hemingway to famed author, Bruce Chatwin. Artists, authors, and geniuses of all variety have long appreciated the simplicity and superior functionality of these notebooks.

Originally these books were produced by small French bookbinders who supplied the Parisian stationery shops frequented by the international avant-garde. However, In 1986, the last manufacturer of Moleskine, a family operation in Tours, closed and Moleskines were gone – but not forgotten. As a result of their previous popularity and demand, they did return. In 1998, a small Milanese publisher brought these books back for writers, artists, travelers and all free-thinkers around the globe.

Moleskine notebooks are very popular. They are durable and small enough to carry with you. They come with all different interiors: grids, blank, ruled, watercolor paper, memo pockets, music ruled, story board boxes, accordion folded and more! They even have notebooks that contain a map (of most major cities) and important landmarks in that city with notebook pages to sketch or write!

I can paint any logo or image on the front of your very own Moleskin notebook! Contact me to find out more information. Prices vary depending upon complexity.
