Mysterious Maps - The Sketchbook Project

Earlier this year I signed up for the Sketchbook Project, coordinated by Brooklyn Art Library. The book is now completed and on its way to Brooklyn, New York. Each year there are several designated themes; the one I eventually chose was Mysterious Maps.

In June the Mysterious Maps sketchbooks will set off on a mobile tour to Providence, RI (June 13) Portland ME (June 14) and Montreal QC (June 16) before returning to Brooklyn and joining the permanent collection of Brooklyn Art Library.

My sketchbook, The Secret Sites of the Shadow Women, comprises a series of fantastical silhouette figures drawn in a range of artist quality black felt pens onto pages cut from a 1982-83 Gregory’s Melbourne Street Directory.

Some of the drawings are featured here. To learn more about this project and for a sneak peek at the book, visit Moth Woman Press HERE
