"Sketchbook 2013: Troubled Times"
I began 2013 with a brand new sketchbook. I have often restricted myself in my sketchwork, obsessing over good results. I decided to rebel against this notion of mine. Now I draw whatever I want, whenever I want. (If I have some time to spare at the side of my studies, that is.)
To start my process, if I don´t have any ideas to begin with, I collage some words from newspapers or magazines, and make some kind of sentence from the words. Then I map out a composition, paste paper and/or words to the page of the sketchbook and start drawing. I try to keep an empty mind and not to constrict myself until it is time to bring some kind of critical sense into it.
