I’ve always wanted to go on a world tour and now my sketchbook has embarked on the journey before me!
I belong to a few online sketch groups. And this particular sketch group decided that we would send our personal sketch books on an around the world artventunre.
The Monkeys are here!!!….
I ended up with five books on my desk. Rather daunting to sketch in someone else’s book ….I have this fear of messing up someone’s book , something that is precious to them. And rather intimidating to see other artists work before yours.
I had to keep telling myself, everyone has their own style and isn’t it wonderful to have such diversity in one book!
It’s so different to see people’s sketches in real life, to be holding it and touching it, rather than seeing it on a computer screen.
My opening pages
Everyone agreed on a small pocket sized moleskine (for ease of postage) , and for each artist to sketch two double pages. The rule was that we could post the photos of our opening pages only. So sorry but all my sketches, although I have taken photos of them can not be seen here or anywhere else. Guess it would spoil the surpirse.
It’s been fun and I definitely can’t wait to get mine back and see all the wonderful sketches everyone has done!!
