At the Post Office, my little Sketchbook Project 2012 is off to Brooklyn, NY ...



















You can see the entire sketchbook on my squidoo lens.
This will be updated with the final version with page titles in a little while.

Finished Sketchbook Project 2012

Wow! My Sketchbook Project is FINISHED!!!
I'll be mailing it out back to Brooklyn, NY this Friday ... it feels a little funny to send it off now, after all this work.
Here are the last two images left to post: the complete parting shot and the colored cover.


All pages have been scanned for my personal archives, and will be assembled into a book soon. More details as that project comes into being.

Sketchbook Project Parting Shot

This is the Sketchbook Project 2012 parting shot: a well deserved local meal after all that walking about, and my personal favorite, the Mushroom Onion Galette!

Illustration Friday theme: Prepare

Traditional food is best prepared in the, well, traditional way.

We found a Creperie recently and I was very excited to see "galette" on the menu -basically, a crepe with buckwheat instead of wheat flour, giving it a very particular taste.

The "galette" I was served was very good certainly, just not what I consider a galette. I could tell this was not a pure buckwheat batter.
Asking the waitress, I was indeed told the cook mixes buckwheat and regular wheat in their batter ... ???

Ok, great, but then don't call it a "Galette" !

Sketchbook Project page 14 With Color

I finished the ink of page 14 and threw in a touch of color.
I'm thinking the building on the left needs to be a little more in shadows, so a couple details here and there is probably in order to call this one really finished -that and a page title of sorts.

Project deadline is looming on the horizon ...


I'm also going to add this one and the last 2 or 3 images to the Squidoo Lens. Check it out.

sketchbook Project 2012 page 14 Mont Saint Michel Street

The deadline for this project is looming ahead, only three weeks from now.
This is the next to last page of the book, with still a few details here and there to do with text information, websites, page titles, etc., to be added.

This afternoon I did the pencil layout and started on the inking for page 14, a very narrow street at the Mont Saint Michel, from one of my own photos.
