Sketchbook Project 2011 - 4

More pages from my contribution to The Sketchbook Project. My theme is "make mine a double."  I have about 5 double spreads left to do, plus the front and back inside cover.

The pages continue to take a beating. The paper is thinner than what I usually use so I'm constantly reminding myself  to take it easy.  Sometimes this work.  Other times I'll accidentally tear an edge or let some ink bleed through to the other side.  I shake those moments off and plow ahead.

  2. Glad to see this. Love the mirrored images and how you have doubled and worked with your title. Yes, I understand your comment on thin paper...looks like you are making the best of it. Would love to hold your book in my hands.

  3. Thank you Heather & Colormuse. Seeing so much variety in people's interpretations of their chosen theme on the art house site is exciting, I can't wait to see these books on tour as well.

  6. your black and white designs are marvelous.
    I too was disappointed by the paper weight in this sketchbook. I took the time to gesso all the pages before I painted and collaged. Made it a bit more workable but I still went through the paper some times.

  12. Love your book! I found my pages to be too thin also and ended up gluing some together, especially for my paintings. Some bled through also. Yours are truly pleasing and beautiful!

  13. Thank you Marisand! Yes, ink bleeding through was a problem. Ghost imaging too, but whatever. It was fun to participate, that's what I'll remember.

  16. Thank you both! Auburn, I love the humanness of this project. It's one of the reasons I've never been interested in creating digital art. Human uniqueness gets lost in the translation.

  19. I wish I could pick it up. My wife's dad was admitted to the ER yesterday so we had to cancel our trip to the show. Luckily they found why he has lost more than 50% of his blood.

  20. Ouch, that's horrible! I'm glad they found the cause. I hope he get's better soon.
