There wasn't enough room in the sketchbook.
I liked the world that I had created in my third sketchbook. Looking at that sketchbook felt like looking at a small insignificant story about a really really important world, and I felt like a left-out giant peering down at it. The amount of respect I had for the story didn't seem adequately represented by the small book I had used to capture it. I decided to make the sketchbook world real, larger than me, and something I could live inside of.
I've been doing that ever since.
