For this year's Art House Co-op's sketchbook project (for more information click here) I did debate long and hard with myself as to the merits of a rhyming narrative. It has proved a tricky thing to achieve and at times it is frustratingly limited.
Pages 8,9,10 and 11
I love the word 'coracle', a tiny, one person boat, that can be manoeuvred easily from sea to land. I think the attraction is the minimalism of the entire endeavour and their shape rather reminds me of an upturned turtle's shell. I imagine this is exactly how they are moved once on dry land; supported by hand and back, turning their owners into temporary reptiles.
I'm off to scour my rhyming dictionary and ponder the rod I have made for my own back!
Perhaps I am committing a blogging 'no-no' but whilst on holiday I had a distinct lack of access to any form of internet. A certain degree of disconnectedness is indeed a luxury, however, I am slightly perturbed as to the emptiness of the August folder on the Blogger sidebar. And so, I am travelling back through blogosphere time to deposit a few posts.
Front and Back covers
Amongst other things, I took my Sketchbook Project with me on holiday. I took it with me the last time I went away (see here) so it seemed apt, given the title, that it should come along for the ride again.

I decided to leave Cedric out of this one. Instead, the narrative centers on two people and the imaginary (or is it real?) journey that they take.
