Sketchbook Project

How do we construct the idea of who is a monster and who is not? When do we become a monster? Coincidentally, my son was reading Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein during the time I worked on this project. A packet of brass brads is included for the construction of paper doll “monsters” from the pages. (part of the Brooklyn Art Library Sketchbook Project)

January Drawing Challenge

For the month of January, I participated in the Comox Valley Arts, a community arts council, 30-Day Drawing Challenge. I used a free app: You Doodle, and my finger on an iPad. This is a selection from the 30 days.
