Sketchbook Project: Pages 2-5

I finally signed up for
The Sketchbook Project: 2011

and am starting to fill up my book. My theme is "Secret Codes". Juicy eh?

At first I thought I would create a code and make the sketchbook into a secret message itself. I started on this, but it was taking a bit too long-- time is an issue here. We all have until January, but there are - count em - 80 PAGES TO FILL. Ack.

Then, while sketching other things tonight, I found I kept sneaking in little sketches of my cat who was sitting there watching me (rather unimpressed, I might add.) And I realised that would be a fun way to fill up 80 pages. Hence, The Secret Code of Cats.

And I remind myself over and over to Keep It Simple. It is a sketchbook after all! Each page doesn't have to be a finished artwork right? So I am having some fun, not worrying too much, and trying to stay loose with this one.

So let me know what you think about the first few pages!

Hi iHanna, I know it's a bit daunting isn't it, all those emtpy pages? It took me a while to get going, but now that I've got my theme I'm really excited. Sometimes you just have to start and see what happens I think... Good luck!! x

I have two cats, and I can totally see the cat code! They pictures are really beautiful.
