Sketchbook Project 2011

This is my entry for The Sketchbook Project 2011 by ArtHouse Co-op. I have to admit I'm capable of way better than this. That's what you get when you complete an entire project meant for 6 months in 2 weeks. Don't judge me! At least it's done. The project is filled with pasted prints of my paintings, some of my photography, and new originals just for the book. Mediums used are acrylic paint, oil pastels, water soluble oil pastels, pen, pencil, and watercolor crayons. The music for the video is titled Long Stroll and can be found at www.incompetech.com by Kevin MacLeod. The video has a green tint, so the actual projects look better in real life. The ink blot butterfly is a funny story. I thought I was done, woke up the last day, started shooting video of the book, and realized I had left a page blank. Oops! So I hurried a painting and the ink blot butterfly was born. In the video the colors look horrible, but in real life it looks better. Still, not my best work, though. Whatever....it's done and it was fun! I had lots of fun making my first iMovie movie, too. I think I'll be doing more of those.
