Dogs and Purses
My theme for my sketchbook is... Raining Cats and Dogs!
This is my first drawing in my Sketchbook Project sketch book. Instead of planning this out, I just went in with marker immediately, and did a stream of consciousness drawing. I figured that would really be the only way to get the "halo" of the unblemished sketchbook. This way I can now feel freer to not be all perfectionist with it. It is a sketchbook, after all, and I like that fact...
I am using this sketchbook as a place for me to "be myself" in whatever form it happens to take on any day when I work in it. So the art materials and style will surely vary, day to day. I am sure this effort will be different things for each person taking part in it. It will be very interesting to see the variety to each book, both physical and conceptually, when I go to visit all of the sketchbooks at the Brooklyn Library next year!
