Here’s a little project, an accordion book full of little sketches made while on walks in my neighborhood.
A big chunk of it was made on a weekend where I wandered around, book in hand, stopping and drawing wherever I felt like.
And then I added a few sketches over the rest of the week until it was done. Here are some later additions.
A grey day in my local park, listening to woodpeckers in the trees while I sketched.
A sketch of the view from the front steps, looking out at my neighbors golden tree and very blue car.
And one last sketch of construction in the neighborhood before the book was done.
I really like the how the idea of a walk and a linear layout like this book tie together so effortlessly and I’m already thinking of other experiences and sketches that could work well with this format.
Have you sketched in an accordion-style book before? (This one is the ZigZag book). How did you like the format? Any challenges that came up in using it?
