I let the Sketchbook Project get too big in my head. Sketching is supposed to be somewhat undefined, like a visual stream of consciousness. It's supposed to look like how we make the sausage, not the actual sausage. Once I let go of my grand ambitions of making my most mind blowing art to date within these thin pages, the inspiration and courage to take this book and create with freedom came. It came just in time for the deadline. Two days ago this book was completely empty, and now it is on its way to the Brooklyn Art Library to be part of a traveling exhibition.
|the inside of my book has a little pocket with a pull out sheet that gives a lil bio of me and my creative process.|
|here you can see how the tape pieces overlap. I used both matte and shiny to create depth and contrast. the next three are my favorite portraits.|
