I wanted to share the contents of my first sketchbook with you, so I’ve made the below slideshow.
I created this book between January and October 2015, using a range of media, including Gelli plate printing, stamping, stencilling, rubbings and drawing with Neocolour 1 crayons, collage, dyes, and a range of other techniques.
I hope you enjoy it! I’m really proud of having finished it, as until last January I felt that sketchbooks weren’t for me. Not all of the pages are ones I love, but I’ve put all of them in, ‘warts and all’!
It’s a 13cm tall by 30cm wide khadi sketchbook, with rough watercolour paper. When open, each spread is 60cm wide, and I tend to work on them in pairs, with a common theme and colour scheme across the spread.
