I made some revisions to the digital version of my Art House Co-op Sketchbook Project 2013. This is a digital version not because I scanned the pages of the original 32 page sketchbook (as the Co-op will do and add to my profile on their website), but because I created a completely separate Photoshop and Publisher version. I posted my first draft a bit ago, and I feel like it has come a long way. I added a cover, title page, copyright information, previous publications, and back cover with information about the artist (me!) and a summary. I also revised many of the images to include more details. I changed the text in the “friendbook” message to add some logic to the narrative. (Initially the story involved one friend flying out to see the other for just a day and then flying back. This made little sense, or was a story of privilege that I didn’t necessarily want to tell.) I hope this version is more believable.
I joined the SBP because, about a year ago, I saw the traveling exhibit at iam8bit Gallery in Echo Park. I made a collage that attempted to capture the great energy of the show.
Here’s the project:
