Adding My Sketchbook To The Mix…

My idea for The Sketchbook Project Limited Edition morphed quite considerably as I put off working on it (procrastination queen, me).  I began with something I knew I didn’t have time for, a mixed-media idea that I am now working on in a whole other format (I’ll blog about that all in good time).  I decided to stick to a simple book of drawings, and wanted every page to have a maze on it. Essentially I wanted to create a puzzle book I suppose.  BUT.  It felt wrong.  It needed a narrative.  And so Bo and his ball of string was born; inspiration born from a crossword that had a clue about Theseus, Ariadne and the Labyrinth.

I made a little video of the whole storybook.  It’s dead simple and silent, but I hope you like it.

    Your submission to The Sketchbook Project Limited Edition is absolutely amazing! I love your integration of the string into the drawings…that red really pops perfectly!!
    I also wanted to thank you very much for the piece you created for the 4×6 Exchange…I received it yesterday in the mail and think it is fabulous!
    Wishing you all the best from the United States,
