Here's to the end of another sketchbook! It takes me about a year to fill a sketchbook (11x14), and I'm almost done with number 14. When I was younger, I never could fill one completely, I would always move onto a different one. I felt like I had to draw complete illustrations or else I would ruin the book. Not anymore, boy!
I cover the black faux leather with fabric that inspires me. I started doing this years ago - the first fabric I used was a skirt I had bought from Clothestime (all you old girls remember) that was right next door to the Target I worked at. I think I was about 20 years old.
A sketch for the piece that turned out to be "My Pain" - one of my most favorite pieces from my Run Rabbit, Run show.
This is the inside covers, plenty of Farrah, some Dexter, Dave Cooper, Daniel Peacock, Camille Rose Garcia, Scott Saw and me.
A Freaky Weirdo
A little Flap Jack Sketch from my favorite boy in the world.
A Halloween Girl sketch.
Some Bearded Cherries!
A sketch for Alice In Wonderland inspired something or other.
And the Rabbit.
A Circus inspired sketchy girl with the Alphabet floating out of her hair.
And another Circus girl sketch for the books! With a stalker like girl in a clown mask. I am in limbo right now with my work, getting geared up to start on my next solo show for 2010. So sketching helps work it all out, the more I sketch, the clearer my thoughts are in begining work for a large series. Hmmmm....
What's in your sketchbooks?
