The January sick sketchbook

page 5 from january-sick sketchbook.

In the Winter of 2014 my immune system collapsed.
I was trapped in my apartment for the rest of the winter.

No humans. 1 tabby.

No internet.

Time to ponder.

1 sketchbook: markers, watercolours, silver-leafing pen. pencils. brushes.
89 double-page, 11" x 17" spreads.
Siempre ando media atascada con el cerebro y los huesos en distintos lugares.

The rules:
Start at the beginning. Not allowed to turn the page till the drawing is finished. No going back. No stopping till every page was full. AT LEAST one drawing a day. The more finished drawings each day, the better.
No erasing, no substracting (exception: I used gesso to get rid of bleed-through from one page to the next, so I could start with a white space).
Work fast.
Writing ok; but editing and censoring, not.
Materials: felt-tip markers, sharpies, , gesso, watercolours, graphite pencils, pens, paint-markers.
