Sketchbook Project: Inside Cover

Inside cover, acrylic & marker on cardboard, 7 x 10", 2011.
I recently signed up for the Sketchbook Project, and chose the theme "uncharted waters".  I took my book apart so I could bind it with heavier paper.  This is my design for the inside cover; the outside cover design can be seen here.

I LOVE seahorses... they're one of my favorite animals, so I knew I wanted to incorporate them into my cover design somehow.  I also wanted to use a bright bright red-orange because the outside of the cover was so muted.  Now I wish I had a red dress with white polka dots and seahorses...

If you would like to participate in the Sketchbook Project there's still plenty of time to sign up!  You can register up to October 31st.  If you sign up find my profile here and follow me!  I'll follow you too... I'm really curious to see how other people are completing their sketchbooks.


  1. They're lovely! I really enjoy the play with the cut-outs.

  2. Make with the updating, or I'll stop checking this blog!

  3. Thank you Zack and M.M.E.!

    That's rude, Jay...
