I chose these two big sketchbooks because I just couldn’t resist the cherry red & magenta pink covers!
Over the next couple of years, one or both of these books sat perpetually open on my art desk, and whenever I had extra paint to use up, or new pens to try out, these pages began to take shape.
This is where I’d scribble notes to myself, idly doodle in between times, while I waited for a zoom call to begin, and during online classes.
I’d see a face in the doodles and gradually these new characters began to show up.
As the pages got heavy with collage and paint, I tore out and tore up and glued back with wild abandon.
There are no rules in these books, there’s no upside down, no right and wrong.
