It has been a while since I updated here… I’ve been on a mission to finish the Sketchbook Project and also do work for an upcoming exhibition – which left little time to post here. Finally, having met the deadline, my Sketchbook is on its way to the US (hopefully arrived by now) and I look forward to seeing what is selected for the Limited Edition print version. I really enjoyed the project – the only thing I would change (for next time) is to rebind the book myself using more sturdy paper stock… other than that it has been really inspiring to work towards this deadline, which allowed ample room for artistic freedom. While the focus has been on ‘sketches’, I feel that there are some themes or ideas that I may revisit to either paint or redraw in a larger/different format.

Here are the final pages from my sketchbook:

Art to me, is as much about understanding life and its mysteries, as it is about telling stories to connect with the world ...

    It is fantastic! It has been so much fun, watching it evolve. I am sure that it will be very well received. I DO like ‘Going Home’ and ‘Bargaining with the Time Lord’, but my favourite is ‘Anxiety’. All the best.
