I have finally started working inside my moleskine! (Nothing like waiting until the last minute, right?!?)
On Friday I stitched the new Arches watercolor paper pages into the cover that I had already painted. (In case you didn't know, I took my sketchbook apart to put heavier paper inside.) The good news is that since the paper is so much thicker, there was only room for 20 pages... So this project is still doable by the deadline as long as I eat, sleep and breathe Sketchbook Project! (And that's exactly what I plan on doing.)
This first drawing was based on the painting L'Homme au Chapeau Melon by Rene Magritte:
Stay tuned for more gnome art adventures...
Since it's Sunday, don't forget to stop by Sophia's blog to see what my friends have been up to for their Sunday Sketches!
After I posted this I checked my mail and found a very exciting message from Charlie Corrigan. Charlie is a very talented artist who was inspired by my 30 in 30 for 30 project and has started her own exciting challenge for the month of January!
During the month of January, Charlie will be creating an original piece of artwork every day - that means 31 original paintings/illustrations in 31 days. She will also be offering some of those originals in her etsy shop for the incredible price of $11.00 - that isn't a typo... yes, an original piece of artwork for only $11.00!
So, be sure to stop by her blog and show her some love. (And if you're so inclined, you can join in the fun - she has rallied a group of artists to join her in her journey!)
