Creating a visual voice = playtime

Sketchbook-montage

I've been creating "visual ideas" sketchbooks for quite some time, and l thought it would be fun to share some of my tactile books with you on my online sketchbook - Looking Glass.

l tend to start visual thinking in my head, which then leads me to carve out my visions onto paper via my A5/A6 sketchbooks. l have started to see my sketchbooks as a journey - a space in time that evolves with the development of ideas, yet leaving a colourful reflection of a "moment in time".

It's always exciting to start a new fresh book with bare crisp white pages, as l never quite know the direction l may go with my thoughts, and the vibrant forms that start to take shape never ceases to give joy in my quest to quench my creative thirst.

Whether it be a textured piece of paper, a tactile cut of fabric, a charming illustration that perfectly fits a visual that l am creating, or the written word that matches the mood, for a vision that is taking form in my mind...l have fun playing around with concepts, giving them a visual voice that l eagerly seek as an artist/designer, yet generating a long-lasting piece of "pictorial happiness" for the intended recipient is truly the reflective objective.

Such playtime makes my soul sing.
