ABOUT SKETCHPACK: The project began in 2011. The original idea was to get folks to draw daily. The Sketchpack is a small zigzag journal with two usable sides, allowing one to sketch on both sides of 15 ‘pages’ to complete the month of August. There was much enthusiasm and the project is now repeated yearly in August, with a Facebook page for us to share as we go along. (The page is closed once the sketching begins, so if you would like to do it next year you need to check out the pages in June or July.) There is an Exhibition held in October filling all four windows of the Artsauce Studio in Observatory, Cape Town, South Africa of mostly locals Sketchpacks!
THIS MONTH AND THE SKETCHPACK PROJECT
ARE COMING TO AN END.
I’ve really had fun with it, working so small
(the images on your screen are bigger than the little accordion journal)
and yes, it is time to say bye to the Sketchpack!
I have new directions I am ready to go in
and as I move there you will be taken along for that ride!
The “parrot” pincers were used below to pull nails
from the Oregon Caves Mason Monterey chairs.
Lie-Nielsen is one of Mitchell’s favorite tools company’s, but since the company
made the decision not to stock with good woodworking stores but only sell online, he
has stopped buying them. It is too much work to shop online, then have it shipped
several days at great expense; often he finds a need he has to fulfill NOW.
I get a hit of roadrunner and the coyote every time I see this anvil!
And for the last, kitchen tools stolen for use in the studio.
Pan scrapers, Pyrex® Mixing cups (they take heat), nice handled scrubby brushes.
I put my foot down the day he wanted my good mixer.
Now when we go to the kitchen store we buy them for the studio too!
THIS HAS BEEN A TOTAL PLEASURE!
THANK YOU ARTSAUCE!
