Sketchbooks are the most intimate work of an artist. they’re the diary of a creative soul. The right to experiment and fail, the premature leaping on the wings of a gust of an idea traced on thumbed paper.
The humour, the piffle right at the turn of the page of the study, the recording of the exceptional observer. The daily moods laid bare in black or white or colour and an occasional word or two. The testimonial of the travels, in body mind and spirit sprawled out over the pages, visible by the wear and tear on all surfaces and corners…. the fingerprint of an artist.
