Sketchbook Finished for 2012 World Tour

Horrah, my sketchbook is finished and ready to send to the New York in preparation for travelling around America, before it wings its way back here for the Melbourne Exhibition.

If you would like to know more about the sketchbook project heres the link:

The Process:
I have taken out all the original paper from the sketchbook. It has been replaced with pastel paper, which I found worked better when using watercolours/paint/collage etc.
For this book I decided to do a few larger pictures instead of a lot of smaller ones, so designed it so the pages could be folded out.
I have used a variety of styles and mediums in this sketchbook as I have used it as a chance to play.


TIMES FLIES: (3 pages) Acrylic, permanent marker, pen, tissue paper,collage

MEMORIES OF TIME WELL TRAVELLED: (5 pages) Pen, ink, watercolour
TIME KEEPS ON TICKING.... : (4 pages) Pen, permanent marker,acrylic,collage

I loved my cover image so much I have converted it into a t shirt design.
Styles available: mens,women and hoodies in a variety of colours.
