Today I received my copy of Whitney Sherman’s “Playing with Sketches: 50 Creative Exercises for Designers and Artists”. It’s a great book, full of creative ideas for your sketchbook and filled with examples of work from artists around the world. I am very flattered that USk founder Gabi Campanario chose one of my city sketches in the section on Urban Sketchers. I guess this is the first time that my work is featured in a book. Anyway, one of the 50 ideas in the book is called “One Day, One Theme”, meaning that for that day you just draw coffee cups or shoes or hairstyles. My twist on this is that I will do “One Sketchbook, One Theme” so I intend to fill this sketchbook with still lifes from my house. I haven’t really had time to give the book a good read through yet but I’m sure there are lots of great ideas that I will be trying.
