Sketchbook Project

My sketchbook submitted to the Arthouse Co-op Sketchbook Project 2011 tour.

The original sketchbook has navy blue card covers. I printed it with a thermofax screen and Gocco ink for paper; I then embossed it with clear embossing powder and rubbed a silver/brown inkpad over it. This is the result. I love the texture!

I thought I would put a sort of location map somewhere in the book with a collage of tourist information brochure pictures and a map.

In this spread I've affixed some of my screenprinted fabric and added some translucent organza printed with the same design.

The theme of the book is lines and grids. I have tended to focus a lot on shadows of fences and other grid-like structures.

On the left hand side is one of my Gocco prints of a North Wales steam train. On the right, the lines and shadows created by a footbridge across the river in Pontypridd, South Wales.

An inkjet transfer of a photograph of reeds. I like how the marks made on the reverse sides of the paper have shown through.

I'm very into mark making straight lines with parallel pens and Pitt pens.
