how to save the world

sketchbook project coverhow to save the world

 This was for the Art-house Co-op’s 500 Sketchbook Project. The theme was “How to Save the World”. Their exhibition was in August 2008, in Atlanta. I watched it online. All pictures drawn from around the apartment (with a small excursion across the Atlantic to look out of the window), usually late in the evening while waiting for my baby son to wake up for his bottle.

Mostly copic and micron pigma pens, but no wash.

As far as I’m aware, the world was actually saved. I just don’t know from what.

    Pete, I sure enjoyed these vignette’s – they made me think and giggle at the same time. Good stuff. After seeing these I’m going to go draw in my sketchbook. Stop by my bog, I’ve got a few new things up.
