Inks and gesso in “Sketchbook Project” moleskine book 7 X 5″
I signed up to participate in the Sketchbook Project Tour: 2011, a “concert tour with sketches”. Every participant gets the same little sketchbook, already barcoded for the Brooklyn Art Library. It’s due in by January 15, 2011 and then spends the rest of the year touring art galleries and museums around the country.
My task now is to fill this little sketchbook with something along a theme line that I picked from their list. I chose “Make Mine a Double” and because I’m having so much fun with rohrshach-like ink paintings, each spread will be one of these.
And now I really need your help, because the other part of my book will be the various interpretations of the inkblots. So please allow that sparkling imagination of yours to go absolutely wild (click on the Comments button above) and write down your associations. I will use just initials in the book, so your identity will be concealed. After all the sketchbooks tour various galleries all over the country next year, they will be in the permanent collection of the Brooklyn Art Library.
So tell us – what do you see? First impressions. . .
