In March-June 2020 I created a sketchbook full of art made from odds and ends I had saved. The book has no words, just pictures. I am showing you the whole book, two facing pages at a time. The book was finished in June. I made it to help myself feel better as I passed through the early days of the pandemic.
Here are the project’s specifics.The book is a mixed media sketchbook that’s 5.5″ x 7.5″. I used collage materials including magazine pages and scraps of my own discarded artworks, as well as acrylic paints and inks, India ink, and pens, regular brushes, and bamboo brushes.
Here are the pages as they appear in the book:
Here is a more detailed look at the images.
These are fun. I especially like the layering of all the text and print types in the second page.
Thank you. The pen drawing was left over from a trial run of an illustration, and that is what inspired the whole rest of this picture.
without question there is a lot going on in your mind
Thank you. Yes, there is, I certainly agree with that, and lucky I have art and writing to keep it moving through, because more ideas are always coming along!
