Colleen's Oct. Sketchbook Challenge



My sketchbook, brand new and ready to go. 100 8.5x11 inches and yes I will use the whole page! I have already been busy, I want to finish about 4 per day. So here goes!



I needed a title page,



the next page was spotted by the markers, so it became my writing page. This is a poem I am working on. The next pics are drawings of a couple of gargoyle statues I have. I thought they might be a nice Halloweenish start.





I'm sure my sketchbook will go in many directions! It should be a nice example for my students.

Re: Colleen's Oct. Sketchbook Challenge

Hi Colleen, your sketches look like fun (although that second gargoyle is suitably scarey!) This looks like it will be a great sketchbook and journal, I like looking at other's sketchbooks who include their thoughts and writing with their drawings - I find it fascinating

Great start Colleen. I like the gargoyle drawings and your poem looks as if it will be interesting. I will enjoy seeing your sketchbook develop.

Re: Colleen's Oct. Sketchbook Challenge

Colleen, your gargoyle sketches are fantastic. I really like the cat-headed one, the other one's perfectly drawn too. Fascinating poem in progress - so cool you put in the changes and show its development as well as your drawings. Cool intro page too! I'll post this to the Index.
