Traditional Sketches

Friday, January 30th, 2009

After my last two posts on typewriter and computer art, I thought it would be wise to go back to the root — traditional sketches. As much as computer art can create something new from an original, you need the original first. In my search for “art is everywhere,” I’ve found a cool blog, the Creative Perch with a weekly post about Art is Everywhere and it was here that I saw the Youtube video below of Chris Dent’s work @ Detour Exhibition (from votredame in 2006) regarding traditional sketches on moleskin notepads. These make great sketchbooks and I usually have one with me when I’m traveling because they are smaller than my original sketchbook and they accept pen and ink sketches exceptionally well.

And here’s another version using the notebook horizontally for watercolors (from Simonetta Capecchi’s notebook @ Detour Exhibition on YouTube by votredame in 2006).

Happy weekend and where did January go?
