The Sketchbook Project- Art House Co-Op

My Art House Co-Op Sketchbook Project contribution

Art House Co-Op Sketchbook Project 2012
The Sketchbook Project is an evolving library of handmade artists’ books, contributed by more than 22,000 creative individuals from across the globe.

After receiving my sketchbook I had to decide on a theme. I posted on facebook asking for my friends to respond with an animal, a color and the time that they responded.  I also asked my brother George and one of his friends Samantha Johns to help me in creating a format for my project. They were asked to provide me each with a list of 12 verbs and 60 phrases. 

I then began going through the responses by using the times that people posted. The hour would correlate with a verb from one of the lists and the minutes would determine which phrase would be used. I would alternate between George and Sam's list, one being the hour and one the minutes and vice versa. The results are reflected in my illustrations below.

The 2012 Sketchbooks are currently touring the world in mini libraries or can be seen online here:
