The Sketchbook Project 2011

The arthouse coop seem to have some great ideas. Apparently 28,834 other artists from 94 countries ALSO thought the Sketchbook Project 2011 sounded like a cracker idea. This week is the deadline and I'm ready to post mine back, hooray!

This is mine. For the cover i thought i might as well reflect a bit of Aussie 'kulcha'. I used a 1970's picture book, which incidentally is great quality paper.. and a bit of Japanese binding tape..
here's the inside spread..

The sketchbooks will tour various cities around the America. You could choose a theme or be given one..
I started off with a plan. Ditched the plan. Began experimenting.

It is 100 pages!! oooh yeah! i'd say i did about 65% in the last 3 weeks.. I'll be posting the whole thing on my flickr link.. plus my favourites on the blog.
My computer has been sick for the last week and a half.. shame.. so i had to trade it in.. back on board now..

Oooh, that looks good! Can't wait to look at the Flikr pics. Just read your post on papier mache using wallpaper paste, how spooky, just about to mix up a batch to experiment with now! Thanks for tip about keeping paste in the fridge too.

A huge effort. It must feel good to have done it.
