The sketchbook Project has been an invaluable exercise for me as I did play around with media that I would not normally and discovered all sorts of creative ways to express visually. I am taking what I discovered into my work and journals this year and am excited about what will be created form this. I really try to sketch or paint a little (or a lot) every day. It is a form of meditation and reflection in a world FULL of noise, clutter and nonsense. I hope I may have inspired you to do more yourself with my playful pages of the now completed sketchbook.
This coming week I have to do the cover and sent it off to the US. A little sad at saying goodbye to hours of whimsical pleasure on paper but delighted to share it with others and hopefully inspire playfulness in the people who see it. Our old dog Conan made it on the last page. I will be printing this one off to add to my own personal journal. Poor old boy, his time is limited.
