Just in time!  Sketchpack month over.  I’ve loved drawing in ink only,
and using a waterbrush to move the non-waterproof inks a bit.

For the whole month, go here!

ABOUT SKETCHPACK PROJECT: The project began in 2011 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 for viewing but you can join to play along!)
There is an Exhibition held in October at the Artsauce Studio in
Cape Town, South Africa of mostly local Sketchpacks!
