Today I am sharing with you some pages from my sketch book. Our latest brief has been a real treat. We are supposed to keep a visual diary and record the area we live in... I have been trying to see and record things that people tend not to notice, specifically things on the ground. I have taken rubbings, photocopies, reliefs etc of rubbish, dead leaves, manhole covers, fire hydrants , footprints, etc .....so look closely and you just might spot something you've left behind.
highlighter pen, you are my friend! I like drawing with materials that are not 'high art' because it seems to be more interesting to use something that has a different intention... in this case office supplies :)
nature in a not so natural spot
That's all for today.
One more thing, I have been working on a book cover and it looks as though my submission has been chosen. This is a rather big deal for me to have a published book cover so I am quite happy. The illustration itself is pretty straight forward because that's what they wanted, so its not anything that special, but a book cover! oh me oh my!
