02-17-2013 Any artist will tell you there is a desire to create a certain kind of relationship with your sketchbook. It's got to be a place of sanctuary where you come to lay your weary head, a place of joy where you jump up and down and share your gleeful moments, it's that and much more. So when it came time to start a new freestyle book for myself I wanted that relationship to click from the start. This cover began with a brown Mod Smash Book sketchbook. Doodling the background (you can see it the most around the edges) covering it with a gesso wash, acrylic sprays, oil pastels, alcohol ink, India ink and finally adding stamp and rub on text.
