The Last Page

4 May

the final mask

I love finishing a sketchbook. It’s a slice of my life and there’s something so satisfying about drawing on the last page and closing it. It marks the passage of time. I’ll open it from time to time because these are working documents and I look through old sketchbooks to get ideas and inspiration but it’s purpose has changed now. This is someone who was walking along the street when I was queueing outside the local shop. He had a mask, but it was round his chin rather than on his face. Bit pointless really. He was moving pretty quickly so I had to do a fast continuous line drawing before he went past.

It’s a tiny sketchbook with a Laura Ashley cloth cover (I got it cheap), but it’s quite thick and crammed with drawings. It’s small enough to tuck away and carry round with me. I’ll work on a slightly larger one next.
