Sketchbook Stories has now begun ! And we are kick starting the workshop off with a interview with the wonderfully inspiring Mindy Lacefield.
You will find a exciting Sketchbook prompt at the end of the interview and i thought it would be great fun to get stuck into this and meet back here next wednesday with our explorations. I plan to do a little film of my sketchbook process to show you all.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to share your sketchbook pages here from Mindy's Prompts.
So lets begin....
1.When did you sketchbook Story Begin ?
I have been using a sketchbook/journal seriously for about the last 4-5 years. I haven't always known what to do with a sketchbook but soon realized that I enjoy capturing gesture paintings and quick painting/collage studies in my sketchbook. For me it's more about painting and gluing and less about actual drawing.
2.How does your sketchbook help you in your creative process ?
It has helped me simply by loosening up and exploring textures and composition
3.If you could fix a date with you and your sketchbook, where would you go ?
and what would be your chosen inspiration ? Oh, definitely out into nature. There are a couple parks that I like to visit and a secret spot near a lake by my house.
4. What materials would you use ? I love to write in my journals, so for sure a soft 6b pencil and some washi tape to add found items into my journal. I also love using inktense pencils.
5.Do you have sketchbook prompt that you would like to share ?
( ie. doodle with your eyes shut, or rubber stamp a sketchbook page )
Yes! Do some stream of consciousness writing. Write for 3-4 minutes or however long it takes you to fill up a page or two in your moleskine. Then paint around certain words or short phrase that speaks to you. Add washi tape in randomly and then finish it off with some sparkle....I love stickles and glimmer glam.
I simply adore the pages of Mindy's Sketchbook, it really makes me excited to crack open the pages and get started.
Next Wednesday is jammed packed with a film of me exploring Mindys Sketchbook Prompt, along with a new Interview by Catherine Constance and more sketchbook prompts to enjoy.
I hope to see lots of your wonderful sketchbook pages for us all to be inspired by.
I would love to read your comments as we kick start Sketchbook Stories.
With Love and Messy Sketchbook Pages
