These are sketchbook entries for the sketchbook project in 2010-2011. They are very simple monotypes (monotype is a very simple form of printmaking). In this case, I drew the figures with ink on mylar and printed them on damp watercolor paper. Resulting in these ghostly images. I used gesture drawing, which is a very quick process in which the artist records the essence of a form. I liked the results and would like to explore this more in the future.
