Sketchbook Project 2020

These are the pages that have been brightening up my long dark days of winter. As we’ve reached the shortest day I’m calling this project finished and ready to move on to all that comes next. I can’t tell you how much fun I had with this book.

This is my 3rd year of taking part in The Sketchbook Project.
(You can see my previous books here & here)

I fill these pages in the spare bits of time in between other things, so they become a visual stream of consciousness, garnished with bits of stuff, collaged scraps of whatever’s on my desk, they come to represent a snapshot of the season’s projects and ideas.

I scribble down words I hear in song lyrics, audio books and podcasts, there are phrases and words snipped from magazines, landing together to create found poetry and serendipitous sentences.

Faces emerge from the blobs of color, the torn paper shapes and the negative space in between.

It’s weird, it shouldn’t work, but it all seems to come together in a way I never could have predicted.

I can’t tell you how much fun I had with this book.

These are the pages that have been brightening up my long dark days of winter. As we’ve reached the shortest day I’m calling this project finished and ready to move on to all that comes next.

I’ll be sharing a full flip through video + a SPECIAL HOLIDAY GIFT that this book inspired with all the lovely peeps who get my newsletter this weekend.

Success! You're on the list.

  1. Awesomeness. Always impressed and amazed at your productivity and creativity. You go! All the best for the New Year and (yikes!) new decade. As someone on another blog suggested: let’s make the 20s ROAR again!
