This is a little Red Riding Hood Sketchbook that I made in September. I made the cover from a mono-printed piece of plastic and then pulled the wolves from the darkness.
Unfortunately it is empty, I have a terrible confession, I don't use sketchbooks, I don't find that they help me in my creative process. When I have made/ used sketchbooks they are an entity in themselves and not a map or path in the development of finished pieces of work.
My thoughts come in sentences, poems and hastily scribbled sketches or doodles on scraps of paper, receipts, envelopes.

Or sometimes it is as with a plastic bag monoprint, I make some sort of mess on the paper in print, bold paint splodge etc and pull (rescue) an image out of it.

My brain is full of a litter of thoughts. My desk, bag, bedside table is a paper chase of litter that is my real sketchbook, it is not pretty, but it is how I stop thoughts, ideas and dreams disappearing.
