As an artist we have to keep our hands and minds moving, which is hard when pregnant and on bed rest. So I am starting a portable studio, not just a sketchbook. Not just a place of record, but to collaborate and conversate. I have had Keri Smith's texts, "Wreck This Journal", "This Is Not A Book", "Finish This Book", "The Pocket Scavenger", "Mess: The Manual of Accidents and Mistakes", and "How To Be An Explorer of The World" for.... well longer than I'm willing to admit!
And so here we begin with...
BRING THIS BOOK IN THE SHOWER WITH YOU
I have to say I LOVE the way the pages turned out, with the creases and ripples. They are visually stunning.
