Sketchbook Project 2011 Post 3







It's been a bit quiet around here, which does not mean I haven't been up to something. Actually I finished my sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project 2011 just about in time. It was quite a task, as it took up far more of my time than I had expected. But I did not "surrender". Anyway, in order to finish it, I dropped the idea of the first story, which leaves it unfinished in the sketchbook for now (but I hope to finish it some time soon) and started another story in a different less timeconsuming style. However, I will not post all the illustrations of the sketchbook for now, as to leave some things open for the exhibition. But I hope you still enjoy what you get to see.
