I’ve finally finished my sketch book for the Art House Co-op Sketchbook Project - and this morning I posted it off to the Brooklyn Art Library, where it will join all the other sketchbooks ready for the six state tour. All the books submitted in time will do a tour of galleries and museums in Brooklyn, Austin, San Francisco, Portland, Atlanta and Chicago - where the public will be able to book them out like regular library books.
I have already posted a few drawings from my sketchbook on my main blog but over the next few weeks I will post all 40 pages of drawings here on this one. So here’s page one -
This is a sketch of a component sculpture I made from an old, smashed doll’s head and selection of crabs legs – glued together.
All the artists taking part in the project were invited to choose from a wide selection of themes before starting their sketchbooks. I chose ‘I’m a Scavenger’. Considering my love of rubbish and approach to selecting materials (when sculpting), I think it’s quite apt.
