five sketchbooks



Five sketchbooks, drawn in the sixth one. Over 200 days of drawing, now. (This is the sketch made on day 204.) Never would have expected this project to evolve as it has - even the bad days have their own discoveries. I am so much more focussed on process now than I ever was before. I used to regard it as a consolation prize - oh, the process is helpful, even if I don't like the result, I would think. Now process and continuity are the center of my work; individual drawings are just the by-product. As a result, I am much more willing to take chances, say 'why not?' The individual project may fail, but I know I will keep working. I am incredibly grateful to have learned this.


Congratulations on all that you have done and on finding the meaning of process.

Your sketchbooks are inspiring...and so is the fact that you have kept up with it. I am on my first one. This is the first time I have really made a dent in one.

WOW! I just stumbled upon your website and I must say I am impressed. I am taking a beginners drawing class to satisfy my core curriculum and I have such a hard time drawing. Your pictures are super great and your talent is awesome. Great work! i am incredibly grateful to have Woolgathering as a sort of anchor at my attempt at focus through drawings - a big learning curve up ahead!
