Sketch Book Project - More Progress ...

Well, basically I finished the Sketch Book Project last night.  Just waiting to take more pix but here are some which I took over the weekend.

Not sure if you can see it from the photo, I have re-sized page 11 so that part of page 12 showed through.  And when you look at page 12 (pink page), it's almost like there's a run-away orange speck.

I've read so many artists who have great trouble to part with their work and I thought I would feel the same.  But interestingly, I actually had a great urge to send it off right away.  It's as if I could not wait to rid of it.  I found this a bit alarming as I have spend quite some time working on it.  Especially when I had a bad start for more than 10 spread pages before I changed the idea and execution totally.

Hmmm .... maybe the idea of completing a project hasn't really sunk in yet.  I have to admit that there are lots of time in my life I have "delayed reaction" to happenings.  It's like when I'm in the middle of something, all my energy is spent on dealing with it on a practical level.  It's only afterward, when it's over, then the emotion will start to come out like droplets or at times like currents.

I think I'll let the Sketch Book sit with me for a while before I send it off.  After all, once when it is gone, I'll never get it back.  It will become a permanent sketch book collection of the Art House Co Op.

Well, my dear fellow bloggers and creatives, what do you think of the pages so far?  Any one's your favourite?  I'll tell you mine in the next post.

Cheers and have a wonderful week ahead!

Incredibly creative. What's interesting is that if you had shown me your sketchbook then listed a number of arty bloggers and asked me to guess whose it was, I think I would have guessed right. You have developed your own unique style which is very clever. I am very impressed. Great job my friend.
