So far I’m continuing my trend of a travel sketchbook/catalog in a sense. New York City is never dull, and I’m slowly branching out to new places, even if it’s just sitting in a coffeeshop alone. Cheap thrills and good sketching.
Mixed media: brush pen, graphite, watercolor
This is my 5”x8” Moleskine filled primarily with sketches from life. It followed me through botanical gardens and a few paint sessions during the winter to the streets and coffeeshops of NYC when I was there for a week in October.
This is my 8.5x11" Moleskine sketchbook (showing 11"x17" spreads), showing my last two quarters as a Senior at SCAD, which then trickles into the post-graduation life and feeling like a freshman in the adult world and having time to reflect on it a bit.
I started this 5x8.5" Moleskine sketchbook at the tail end of my stay in Milwaukee, WI, in August 2016 and followed my to Chicago for a short bit, back home in Texas, back to school in Savannah, a hurrication to Atlanta and up the East Coast, and back home in Texas again in December.
I used mixed media of various pens, ink brushes, craft paint, colored pencil, airplane tickets and luggage tags, and toned paper.
