I love making pocket-sized booklets. At the moment I am making five consisting of 5 sheets, folded and simply stitched together in the centre with carpet thread (I’m not going to impress anybody with my bookbinding skills here) using Thai Mulberry paper. I have already started with some cat cutouts I made last week, enjoying pasting them onto pages and working them with watercolour and pen. It's a relaxed and free way to develop ideas, and I enjoy the mix of line and textures.
I am beginning to turn over the idea of doing the 100 Days Project on Instagram with cat drawings. It's a great way to develop work, and I have been most inspired by other artists' 100 days - hence the 5 booklets consisting of 20 pages.
Thanks for visiting, see you next week!
PS: If you were here earlier in the week, you may have noticed I replaced an image of works in progress with a photo of all my lovely handmade sketchbooks. I have been wanting to show these sketchbooks for ages - and I don't want to give too much away before I start on the #100daysproject! Watch this space!
