Large Artist Sketchbook 2021 Pages 25 and 26

Here’s another one of my artist sketchbooks for you to see. It was finished in May of 2021 but the artworks were done over the previous year or so, I guess. I’ll be showing you page spreads, one each week, for as long as the book goes on.

As you know, I make these books for my own enjoyment. I work on a page as the inclination strikes me and I never have a plan for the book or for the artwork that goes into it. There is no theme, no meaning, other than what each image shows the viewer and the viewer takes away from the experience.

In this book I did artwork on the front and back of each page. There’s nothing written associated with the images, and the images paired in each page spread do not relate to each other in any way except for being side by side.

I hope you enjoy looking at this book!

Here is the page spread for today:

And here are the individual pages.

    I really love that portrait of a critter – and observing critter – and its expression makes me smile. I think that combination of yellow and blue is very striking and, right now, with all of the art in support of Ukraine, my brain automatically made me think of the critter as a metaphor for the resilience and determination of the Ukrainian people.

    The second piece has wonderful visual texture and a quality to the colour palette that makes me think of sepia photographs. It makes me think of all the dilapidated abandoned buildings I like to explore.
