For the first time, I am making finished sketchbooks.
Featuring a bookmarked center spread with an original watercolor sketch, there are bits and bobs peeking out, much like our own 1:1 sketchbooks. The inspiration for the bits and bobs is Keli’s clever receipt notebook.
The covers have a snippet or collage of other original art, meaning that each sketchbook will be one-of-a-kind.
Here are the first four center spreads. Each will be bound into the classic sketchbook cover, then individually bitted and bobbed.
In addition to sketches I’m doing some abstract expression-y explorations.
What doesn’t make the design cut to center spread will be used for the bits and bobs, and cover illustrations. The books are finished to be relatively flat, measuring 1.625 x 1.125 inches (4.13 x 2.86 cm). This is the real deal — original art made 1:12 scale — for the love of miniatures and color and drawing and watercolor markers. And bits and bobs :)
