I came very close to not finishing my work for the Sketchbook Project 2013, because I’ve been sick off and on for the past month and my concentration has been almost nil. I chose to completely ignore any theme and experimented with an idea I’ve had in mind for awhile.

Using a plastic template of circles, ovals, triangles, squares, and octagons I went through the entire sketchbook and drew repeating shapes covering each page to create patterns. I tried something different with each two page spread, sometimes using the same shape in different sizes, and other times combining a mix of different shapes.

When all the drawing was completed, I went back through with an xacto knife and spontaneously cut different designs and compostions from the paper. Not all of these were successful but I decided to just let it be and not get hung up on results.

I love some of the pages, and strongly dislike others, but overall I’m happy to send it off for inclusion in the Brooklyn Art Library.
