In general, when you think of a sketchbook, most tend to think of a book filled with blank pages in which a person draws out ideas and sketches images. Though I have many of these "traditional" sketchbooks, I also consider other pieces of work to be a part of that sketchbook mentality. Drawings, clay test tiles, smaller sculptures etc. . . are all a part of my sketchbook. In the past, I have shied away from showing people my "sketches," feeling they were private pieces unintended for others to see. I do, however, believe that it is a significant part of my thought process, and helps to inspire larger pieces. For my thesis show, I am including a small sketchbook area in which I will compile pieces I feel are significant to display. I have added some images below of just a few "sketches," or smaller works.
