Once Upon A Time ….

This will be my third year of participating in the Brooklyn Art Library’s Sketchbook Project.  I signed up immediately and really could have got cracking with filling its pages as soon as I had completed the previous (zombie themed) sketchbook in December.  However, I have been procrastinating or so very many months.  Partly this was because I was percolating and contemplating several possibilities for my chosen theme and subject but mostly it was because I was crippled once more by that loud inner critic of mine insisting my doodlings are not good enough to be on the shelves of the Art Library – which is ridiculous since two of my sketchbooks are already there.  So I gave myself a stern talking to and a wee bit of a pep talk, arrived at a final decision regarding my subject matter, drafted a plan for each page, and I am making a start.

I have opted to work under the umbrella theme “Scenes from a Story” and my subject will be fairytale characters.  I will be drawing in my usual style with line work in black ink but this year i have rebound my sketchbook to include Canson Mixed Media paper so that I can add a splash of colour to each illustration using liquid media.  I will be sharing my progress over on my more specific art blog and also on Instagram.

  1. I’m currently working on Book #6. I’ve been participating since 2013. One of my books is also party of the tiny sketchbook project, I turned it into a flipbook animation. I also did one of their infinite sketches. What I like about TBAL is that they also tour your book across the US. By the way yours looks very cool. 🙂 You can see my latest called Hodge Podge at my WP Blog.
