The Birthday Book - page 23 by SalHunter The Birthday Book - page 23 by SalHunter
(Portal)

In 2009, I was given a little drawing book for my birthday ... it's a spiral bound sketch book with a pretty cover. Not something I would buy for myself ... but a welcome gift none the less. I decided to fill it with little sketches and drawings as a stream of consciousness.

This is page 23 ... HB and 2B pencil ... about 7 cms by 14 cms ... 3 days.

See the rest of the book here, [link]

It is so great to see how you employ so many different variations on a similar theme. This sketchbook is going to be epic when it's done.. how many pages left to go?

Thanks my friend ... another 13 pages (months) left ... Its weird, the book was supposed to have 35 pages and I was disappointed because it didn't fit neatly into a year BUT after counting several time it appears that there are indeed 36 pages ... oooooeeeeerrrrrr an extra page just for me! :-)

It does ... I was thinking about the unknowable with this one ... and the barriers that stop us seeing things :-)

Oh Yes!!! I used to love those when I was a kid ... I ate a whole box of them and was promptly sick ... never been able to eat them since :-(

I have dozens of sketch books. The old ones have super detailed drawings but the new ones are full of 2 second speed squiggles.
