20 Pages: sketchbook video

August 10, 2012 by Sharon | 0 comments

During the opening reception of 20 Pages, a computer was set up that played a video created by Val Webb and Mark Perez. It featured a flip-through of our sketchbooks, since there were mounted to the wall and not able to be handled during the event. Charlie Smoke (Associate Director of the MAC) has been posting these videos on the MAC’s vimeo account. It’s been weeks and weeks, and finally, the last video is up. The one featuring my sketchbook.

My book starts at 9:14, and I also contributed a page to Thekla Wilkinson’s book.
