If you’re itching for a new sketchbook, look no further than that an old (unwanted) book on your shelf. Its pages are begging to be upcycled into colorful works of art. A fantastic example of this is illustrator Molly Egan who showcases the possibilities with her fun and vibrant imagery. Spread after spread is filled with amusing characters, hand lettering, and bold shapes. And because these pages are already printed on, there’s less pressure to make each of them perfect. This book has already had a full life—Molly is giving it a new one.
Molly chronicles her work on Instagram and sells a selection of it in her online shop.
