Sketchbook Project

My friend Lisa, posted a link for this fun art project. You get to have your little moleskin book of art in a traveling show and then permanently housed at the Brooklyn Art Gallery. I decided to plop down a little cash and do THE SKETCHBOOK PROJECT as a way of relighting my creativity that has been on the back burner for far too long. 
I've had the book for several months now. I was alllllllll excited to get started, but I let stuff get in the way and now the book is due this weekend. Looks like I will begin a ''get creative'' marathon this week. :-)

The theme I got was (your name here). It took me forever to decide if I wanted to go literal or with a book about me. I choose: me! I got this to originally be blank, but what the heck!

My first two pages!!! I am: a reader!!! Some of the book titles maybe easy to figure out, others, you'd have to know the book or look them up!!  Only, like, 50 more pages to go!!!!!

My drawing/coloring skills have sadly fallen by the wayside since my costuming class. They got pretty good when I had to do them all the time for school....2 years ago.

Two of renderings for Dracula. I guess I was having a coat fetish at the time. It was ccccooollllldddddd. Will they win any awards? NNaaawwwwwww. Are they good for renderings? Yep. Our assignment was to work on Dracula and then do all the renderings in black and white. I had sooooooooo much fun!! Since an artist I am not, I took some online body shapes and added to them. That was one of the techniques we learned.....yes, it was beginning costuming. Yes, I was a total grade ho. Yes, I was as old as the teacher. Yes, 99.9% of the students were under 20 so I was a leper for a few weeks...then, Suzy Homemaker that I am, I brought cupcakes and helped some of them sew....leper no more!!

Wow, how did I end up here???  Squirrel!!!

Happy creating!!
