A few years back, when I was working on my MFA, I created these books called sketchbooklets. They were excepts of 30 sketchbooks that I had kept over the past ten years. I recently found a stack of interiors and had a sudden urge to bind them all in one book. It was also a good excuse to make a book... inbetween my 9 month olds naptime and waiting for client feedback on various work projects. It feels very rewarding to hold excerpts of ten years in one chuncky book. Mostly the drawings and other random things are from my New York & Boston years. It all feels like a lifetime ago. I wonder how many lifetimes does one have in a life time?
The cover is groovy flocked wallpaper which was the wallpaper in my house on long island, where i grew up. Its fun and very super 70s. (Soon i will do something with the metallic, reflective pink floral wallpaper from one of the bathrooms. Its a statement in itself!)
