These are the last pages of my entry to this years Sketchbook Project, sorry for the poor quality but after sticking in all the benches the pages didn't open flat! Now on to the next project, wedding invites for friends.
I've finished my entry to the Sketchbook Project for another year and it should be well on it's way over the Atlantic for join the collection in Brooklyn. I chose the theme strangers and decided to base my book in a park looking at all the different people who visit this one bench over a year. Unfortunately the pages didn't scan perfectly but here's the first few with the rest to follow!
After posting my sketchbook off to the Brooklyn Art Library back in January it is finally back in the country as the sketchbook project world tour stops off in London at the Canada Water library. After a long delay with the trains I finally got there with an hour and a half before closing and it just wasn't long enough to look through the hundreds of books by artists from Europe, Australia and New Zealand, I did get to see my own again though! I recommend that anyone in the area between Monday and Friday (19th Oct) should stop by and have a look at as many books as you can, there is definitely a style to suit every-ones taste, and don't forget to check out my own book - 'Fill me with Stories'.
I just about managed to finish my latest sketchbook for the Art House Co-op and it's now on it's way to join their sketchbook library. I'm really excited by this project as it was limited edition and as well as going on tour at least one spread of my work will be featured in a published book. My chosen theme was 'why did the owl make everyone laugh' but I chose to make my book into an illustrated poem with facts owls, they really are brilliant birds!
