When The Sketchbook Project came through San Francisco, I was awed by the work of the hundreds of gonzo talented artists who had contributed. I knew I had to do it. So, I challenged my friend Maggie to complete it with me and we signed-up for our own books.
I created a book in a variety of styles, kind of like the needlework samplers our grandmothers once made. I framed the book around a kid’s crazy sandwich order at one of my favorite po’boy restaurants in New Orleans, Guys. I then based each page on an ingredient of his order and drew it in a different style. Some drawings are better successes than others, but it was a fun experiment.
It’s travelled over 25,000 miles internationally and is currently waiting for you in the Brooklyn NY. You can view the whole thing here.
