Two Covid Sketchbook Pages, for “The Sketchbook Project” (Brooklyn Art Library)

A few months ago I submitted two sketchbooks to the Brooklyn Art Library “Sketchbook Project.” At some point they will be digitized and available for viewing on their website. These two pages are from the sketchbook titled “Just Another Covid Sketchbook.” These two pages seek to express the difficulty of representing the emotions provoked by Covid and the American politics around it. The sketchbook is angry and bitter, mostly, and these pages capture the challenge of articulating something about our situation. I made this with watercolor pencil and water soluble graphite and then used a spray bottle with water to activate it all.
