Sketchbook and Theme Book

This is a fun idea along the lines of sketch crawling – a ‘drink and draw’ night at the pub. Subject is drawn out of a hat. Kids loved it!


Full size cartoon for my sisters House Book cover, and some stitched samples. Some of the photos are awful – they are stitched on dissolvable stabiliser and the reflections are beyond my photographic skills!


Sketchbook, page by page:



Playing around with computer embroidery:


Theme book. Began as pattern and order in nature, evolved into pattern and order in general, then disorder and chaos.



The following pictures are in light pencil on coloured paper and have not photographed or scanned well:



Currently my final piece is likely to be a quilt. This is a large (1m X .5m) collage of the idea at this point.

    Hi. I am thinking of doing textiles with the oca. How are you finding the course? Had you done much sketch work before hand? thanks.
