The last spread from my “Everyone We Know” sketchbook
The “Last” one! Oh no! I’ve really enjoyed all of them. You now have a huge problem – what to do next. Brilliant series Margie.
LOL! Thanks, Bob.
I went to the ArtHouse Co-op for the opening last night, and can’t believe that among the 2,800 sketchbooks I found Joseph’s and I found mine! I’m so glad I got to see Joseph’s – its great.
The creativity and variety of how people approached the sketchbooks was astounding, amazing, inspiring and absolutely delightful. I only looked at about 30 and was completely saturated. It was an amazing experience.
As for mine, I actually had a whole lot more spreads than I posted on skineart. I’ll post them all in one place and send you the link sometime soon.
Here’s a link to photos we took at the opening… Sorry the pics are poor quality – they were taken with a cell phone.
Thanks for sending the photos of the opening. This looks like quite an enterprising adventure. I’m so glad you found your own AND Joseph’s submissions in all of these. I thinks its amazing that you are looking at something in your area, which was created in far away Spokane then telling someone in Scotland, who just happens to know the guy, about this. Joe will be so pleased when you tell him you were looking at it. I know he put an amazing amount of work into his “book” – as all of you must have. Art is really a true ambasadorial language.
Some years ago, I was priviledged to be one of the judges for the annual Scotland Design Council competion. One of the entries, from a young lady in her teens, was a series of “Greeting Cards” based on the rhyme, “Monday’s child is fair of face, Tuesday’s child is full of grace ….” I cannot remember if she was the eventual winner but her entry was highly recommended. I believe she went on to publish her efforts as cards for new born children. Have you thought of doing something similar with your “Wee Series?” I bet they would be highly sought after.
Bob, I entertained a similar train of thought about seeing Joseph’s book all the way from across my country, and telling you, way over there across the pond about it! I just love how the internet can connect us!
I showed this wee series to several non-artist friends and they all said what you are suggesting: cards or small books. I love the compliment! Thank you. And I do love drawing folks with giant fat heads like I’ve done in this wee series. Its fun to see how much expression I can pack into a few lines.
