This is the first of many postings of some of the sketchbook creations I've done or have been scratching into notebooks and on pieces of paper. I get a lot of joy out of playing around with the human face, looking at linear distortion of it's features to create the unusual character portraits. The format of these has been determined by a set of little photo albums I found at an op-shop near my home. I 'm inspired to fill the four nicely bound books with these 10cmX15cm little sketches. The colour was added in Photoshop using a layer with transparency selected as 'multiply'.
