My first thumbnail layout for the new zine I am in the process of making a new zine based on my travels in 2023. As I drew in a variety of different sized sketchbooks there are quite a few edits and adjustments to make. I am using Photoshop and InDesign to put the zine together as I used for a previous zine. You can read about previous attempts here and here. The settings I used to scan the images I started by making a layout, with thumbnail of each of the spreads. This gave me an idea for the flow of the zine. Then I scanned the sketchbook pages and cleaned them up in P ..read more

Sketchbooks spreads from a weekend in Leicester in August. For this particular weekend I changed my usual sketchbook for an A4-sized, portrait watercolour Moleskine one. I also tried to use it more like a journal too. It will take a while to get used to. Not so easy to scan either!   ..read more

My first real recollection of hearing about ‘Rendez-vous du Carnet de Voyage’ was via artist Andrea Joseph, who wrote about her experience there on social media a number of years ago. Since then I have visited twice and applied twice to exhibit. You can read about one of the trips here. Last year I was lucky enough to be selected for the show and invited to display my drawings alongside a hundred or so other artists. As well as the artist stands, there are also films, talks and demonstrations. I don’t know of any events like this in the UK and speaking to people from other European cou ..read more
