A Day in the Life- Sketchbook Fiction Project 2011 cover w-i-p
I signed up for the Fiction Project/sketchbook project by the Art House Co-op in Brooklyn, NY. My moleskine cahier journal arrived about two months ago but my travels, the big bad flu and of course my worries of 'how am I going to fill the book with some kind of an illustrated story?'- kept me from working on it. I spent a few days researching and experimenting on the paper with different mediums, pens and pencils and have decided color pencils work the best for me. I am not brave enough to change the look of book or papers completely, so will have to contend challenging myself with filling up book with some drawings and words. The theme I chose is "A Day in the Life" and I have the first few pages percolating in my imagination. I finally started on the front cover today working with color pencils. Wish me luck --I have to fill up a book of 40 pages.
