End of the Year – End of a Sketchbook

Cover

The cover of my sketchbook

Here is a peek into a sketchbook that I have been working on from 2013-2014 and recently finished. It is a plump, tattered book with edges stained in color. When I work in my sketchbook, I am most creative… combining odd imagery, observations from life, and a myriad of techniques. This book also contains many memories. It is filled with drawings of friends, and drawings made by friends. In the backgrounds of the pages you can see maps and bus schedules that I wrote, aiding myself in navigating a new city. Featured here are my favorite spreads…

Hands

Roses

Skull

Fire

I find it fitting to complete a sketchbook with the completion of a new year. See you in 2015!
