I'm done in Big A's book--woot!






This was all done in Andrea Martinez's book, and I was prompted by the first two pages at the bottom, where Andrea drew some lines and shapes and suggested I try adding more, including some color. I thought this made for a great challenge, since I don't work much with color in the sketch workbooks, plus, I noticed it said "top" at the edge of one of the pages, suggesting the book be worked in in a completely different manner than I'm used to - one I don't recall trying before in any Moleskine. I thought it would be fun if all the pages worked as one, as well, and until I posted this here at the blog, I really had no idea how it would turn out. Overall, it was just one big, continuous doodlefest - working stream-of-conscious style while listening to music, including B12: "Electrosoma", The Flaming Lips: "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots", Cerulean: "No Sense in Waiting", The KLF: "Chill Out", and Space:"Space".

Out of this world! I can relate this to the music you listen to, Steve. I'll have to get hold of some when it's my turn as I like to catch onto the theme.

Anyway, it's cool, love the interconnectedness and yet different approaches. How fun!
