Whew! This is going to be a long post. I finished my sketch book for the Sketch Book Project. Here are some of the images I drew.
I used bits of poetry to accompany some of the images.
I also just had a little fun with my own thoughts and words!
I used a lot of quotes from "A Midsummer Night's Dream". Here is Bottom, singing.When Marty was little, he played the part of Bottom in a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream and I made a papier mache head for his performance. I wish we still had it, but I gave it to so many other theater companies to use that who knows where it is now!
I found some really nice black paper in my stash and wrote with a white pen. I like the effect!
The participants of the Sketch Book Project were to pick a theme for their book from a list that they provided.
I picked "Nighttime Stories".
This is the second to last page,
And this is the second page.
Lots of sleeping and dreaming images.
Here is a mermaid in her night garden.
"A Midsummer Night's Dream " has a beautiful line about mermaids. Act 1 Scene 1.
She has some paper cut-out stars.
And that's the last page! Thanks for looking! The show starts at the Brooklyn Art Library and continues all over the country. You can see all the different art work here!
