“PATTERN IDEAS” – Handmade book filled with sketches

“PATTERN IDEAS” – Small handmade books filled with tiny magazine photos with sketches of the patterns these photos inspire.  Creating this project has inspired me to sketch almost nonstop and it’s wonderful inspiration for future designs in my art.  I also love that this project can be done on a clipboard on my lap and is very portable to enable me to sketch on the road!
