Here are some sketchbook pages from my sketchbook for arthouse's Sketchbook Project 2012. Sketchbook.
Little did I know when I signed up to this project the effect it would have. My approach to filling the book was purposeful and driven, and I produced drawings and makings unlike I ever have before, namely through working faster and drawing plenty of people. I often shy away from drawing people through fear of not capturing what makes them 'them', and so rendering them heartbreakingly unrecognisable. Within this venture I have learnt that I can draw Hugh Laurie, but not Madonna, and honestly, I'm happy with that.
As this sketchbook was a gift, it felt like an arena for play and also fearlessness.
I'm happy to be a part and kindof sad its gone now, but may that feeling of 'why not?' remain.
Plus, might do it all again next year.
