"I'm so literal I fear this book will be about streets…and looking down them…and who "you" might be. It's a place to start I suppose. It's a delicate balance between listening to your & challenging yourself. "
For quite a few pages I just did whatever came to mind. Most of it was centered around the process of buying and moving into this new (old) house (the house of my dreams really). My whole world was about that then.
I have dreams too. They are new but began years ago. I never knew it was okay to dream. I've learned since then. Now I dream in vivid imagery. "
Then I started playing with line. Many of these were done in other sketch pads/books because I was more relaxed working in those. The pressure to do something great in the Sketchbook Project book was too much and it undermined my confidence and ability to relax into an idea.
This whole experience was a pretty good one, self imposed pressure aside. I'm actually most impressed that I finished it and sent it in on time. Look at me, I'm a big girl now.
