The cover- front and back...not crazy or anything...just little doodles...the rest of the pics are in order...as if you were flipping through the pages. Some fold out- so if the page looks big- it's an origami page of sorts...folding out from the original page size!
I didn't have any grand ideas for this. Some of the sketchbooks I have seen are so elaborate and beautiful- not so much mine. I took this as a true sketchbook- full of ideas and trying out colors and concepts.
As you can see- I like a lot of tiny words, texture and patterns. It's kinda my thing.
There is a page with a litho and sketches that fold out- the first page has 3 sketches that flip various ways- and the next page actually opens into an 11 x 14 heavy weight page.
Some animals I like to do- I love the blocking and again- my tiny drawings. I included a Jasper Johns from the litho series 0-9. I love his work. I have always been fond of this one in particular. There are some tired sketches late in the wee hours of the am. Tattoo sketch for my sister-in-law. And some Japanese inspired doodles. Poppies- love me some poppies! My trees- for the art-o-mat blocks...Testing out leaves and textures for the blocks. Other random color tests and doodles.
That's it- the whole book. Pretty neat that it will live in a library when the tour is done. It's also pretty neat that it is going on tour. There is a bar code on the back of the book and every time someone looks at my sketchbook I will get an email notification. Soooooo neat! I will be doing this again I am sure!
If anyone else participated in this- I would LOVE to see your book too! Leave me a comment link!!!
Happy Friday everyone!!!
