Moleskine Project VII

by ncwinters on August 3, 2018

The Moleskine Project is back!

I’m honored to be included in this year’s lineup for Moleskine Project VII at Spoke Art Gallery in NYC. The annual show features several artists each creating a unique image via the medium of the classic Moleskine sketchbook. It’s always a delight to see all the different interpretations of how each artist tackles this challenge, both in content and in medium. You’d think the most obvious solution would be pencil or pen on paper, but artists used a variety of methods from acrylics, gouache and  watercolor, to oils, spray paint, and even cutting and manipulation of the pages themselves.

I went with a very straightforward approach and just filled the spread with as much ink drawing as my cramped hands would let me. And then I added just a little more. It was a joy to hear that the piece sold before the show’s opening. I’m super happy with how it turned out, as well as the caliber of art delivered for the show by all the artists. As usual, Rod Luff and Ken Hashimoto know how to curate an incredible group of artists, and I’m honored to be showing with them.

The show opens tomorrow, July 4 at Spoke Art in NYC. I wish I could be in attendance, but I will be stuck on the west coast. If you’re in the New York metro area, don’t miss out on the show! And here is my contribution: “Behold.”
